Counter Drawing on semiotics, feminism, and Marxism, John Duvall challenges traditional views that Faulkner's fiction is essentially misogynist. Charting the many pairings of nurturing, passive males and strong, sexually active females in Faulkner's work, he undermines the view of Faulkner as an upholder of Southern patriarchal values and reveals instead how Faulkner's fiction traces the full androgynous spectrum of the human condition.
