Faulkner's Geographies

Lorie Watkins

University Press of Mississippi

Feminist geography has long considered the effect of geographic differences on gender relations and gender equality. In this essay, Lorie Watkins reads Faulknerian women, especially Linda Snopes Kohl, through the lens of feminist geography to reveal the nearly insurmountable social strictures facing the women of Yoknapatawpha. This reading also reveals a marked strength of female agency in Faulkner’s later works.

Keywords:   Feminist Geography, Gender Equality, Linda Snopes Kohl, Faulknerian Women, Later Works
