    1. To my notion, man is a buzzing fly blundering through a strange world, seeking something he can neither name nor recognize and probably will not want.On January 27, 1926, William Faulkner completed and dated a slim handwritten manuscript called Mayday , a gift for Helen Baird, who he had unsuccessfully courted At this time, his first novel, Soldier s Pay, had been written but was yet not quite published The story was illustrated with two pen and ink drawings and three watercolors, all by Faulkne [...]



    2. Faulkner s little 1929 book called Mayday languished unknown for half a century before its popular trade edition was finally published in 1976 Carvel Collins introduction is almost as long as Faulkner s text Which is okay.Collins writings about Faulkner are not always satisfactory, as we saw in his 1962 introduction to William Faulkner Early Prose and Poetry He tends to drop ramshackle hints here and there about his subject s life than he provides a chronological and connected accounting of the [...]

    5. Regardless of whatever critical acrobatics some may attempt, this little tale seems pretty inconsequential within the corpus of Faulkner s canon It is, however or so it seems to me , profoundly illustrative of the d evolution of romance tradition and the quest adventure novel into and during the twentieth century The transformation of delightful good humour and ecstasy into terrible, desolating and hopeless pessimism is subtle and delicate, but inescapable if read carefully Brilliant.
