Our teacher assigned us an omnibus, or collection of Faulkner’s short fiction that we could not finish. The vast omnibus of his writings included all of his novels. Dr. Emily Rose wanted us to read the entire anthology, but no one had time to complete all the pages of such a long omnibus. A second Faulkner omnibus contained hundreds of his letters, which we also could not complete.
