Introduction: Remapping Two Fa(u)lkners’ Works and Literature Education in Today’s Digital Environments
Chapter One: Progress from Monologism to Dialogism: Studying Two Fa(u)lkners’ Works
Chapter Two: Social Combinations beyond Borders of Race, Gender, and Class in William Faulkner’s Intruder in the Dust
Chapter Three: Social Combination in Class: How to Teach Two Fa(u)lkners’ Works and Digital Literacy to ESL Students
Conclusion: Personal Democracy in Social Combination
This book offers a unique blend of literary criticism and pedagogy unified under the author’s coined term of ‘social combination’ and the ways the author sees social combination addressed and enacted in the writing of Colonel William Clark Falkner, William Faulkner, and in digitally-supported ESL classrooms. In an impassioned argument that tinges criticism with personal essay, [the author] does an impressive job of weaving various large strands into an interesting and original discussion that can be useful for readers interested in American literature, southern literature, Faulkner, digital humanities, and pedagogy generally.
