This narrative of Faulkner was interesting to listen to. It was a good 5 minute listen. Its not quite what I expected. Its sort of hard trying to grasp all of the literature the narrative was staying but in the end it was worth it.

Excellent Overview of Faulkner

Faulkner can be a bit daunting to students, but this excellent overview appeals on so many levels. It provides wonderful clues to literary elements in all Faulkner's work and makes it accessible to first time readers. Attention span in the classroom is always a challenge, even for the most entertaining teacher, but I have great results including audio. Student response is always favorable because it is short, action packed, and informative. I love using various forms of audio in the classroom.
