William Faulkner’s Short Stories
(By Date of First Publication)

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. 187-98.

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.
