About the short story
lists: included here are all of Faulkner’s
published short stories except for those that appear solely
as a constituent part of a novel. Hence, for example, the short
story “Go Down, Moses,” which was first published
in Collier’s in 1941 and was later incorporated
into the book of the same title, will be listed here, whereas
“Was,” the short story that opens the novel Go
Down, Moses but which was never published elsewhere,
will not be listed. Only works that have been published are
included; for a more complete bibliography of Faulkner’s
short stories, including works that exist only in manuscript
or typescript form, please see James Ferguson's Faulkner’s
Short Fiction (Knoxville: U of Tennessee P, 1991), pp.
Titles link to individual pages that include
more detailed information about the work. Dates are of first publication.
Notes include reference to works that were later revised or otherwise
incorporated into longer works.
