Heretofore, many critics have addressed Faulkner's South from varied perspectives. But it seems that they have not fully explicated his South in terms of its complex, dynamic formation. As the recent studies of place suggest, “place” is something much more intricate than we may assume: it consists of diverse dimensions such as temporality, spatiality, materiality, and human subjectivity. By exploring Faulkner's tragic dramatization of human-place relations in Absalom, Absalom! and Go Down, Moses , this thesis brings to light Faulkner's “dark” poetics of place, which critically enacts the South as an intricate configuration entailing the history of social relations, spatial politics, the environmental problems, and human consciousness.
