Global Faulkner: Faulkner and His Contemporaries

  • Biljana Oklopcic


Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha fiction echoes, among other things, tendencies present in Modernist literature, in particular, the focus on family and its genealogy. As “the method of researching person’s, thing’s, or phenomenon’s family tree” (Biti 1997, 110, emphasis mine), the terms genealogical and genealogy became part of the historical discourse between 1250 and 1300. Friedrich Nietzsche introduced it into modern philosophy with his On the Genealogy of Morals (1887). By deconstructing seemingly unquestionable values into opposite categories, Nietzsche looked for the genealogy of morals in “what is documented, what can actually be confirmed and has actually existed” (GM 21) as well as in “a knowledge of the conditions and circumstances” (GM 20). Almost a century later, Michel Foucault defined genealogy as “a form of history which can account for the constitution of knowledges, discourses, domains of objects” (1980, 117). As the analysis directed to revealing “the complexity, fragility, and contingency surrounding historical events” (Smart 2000, 49), Foucault’s genealogy is grounded “in a time and a place” as well (Smart 2000, 50).
