The overall trend of Faulknerian criticism encompasses such broad areas as race, class, gender, realism, modernism, postmodernism, feminism, poststructuralism, rhetorical and ideological theories, and cultural studies. I, however, focus on family centric nature of Faulkner’s fiction. Parents are nucleus to a family; they are the governing principles, and cohering chord of the institution of family. The theme of parenting and family is as important as the other aspects (race, class, gender.etc.) to Faulknerian studies. But this parental aspect of Faulkner is relatively neglected by Faulknerian criticism. Moreover, reams of paper have been used on a particular text or a particular major or minor character. Some studies also explore either Faulkner’s fictional mothers or fathers. But a book focusing primarily on Faulkner’s fictional parents and their children is not readily available. The book emerges to fill in this lacuna of Faulknerian studies.
