Games of Property: Law, Race, Gender, and Faulkner’s Go by Thadious M. Davis

By Thadious M. Davis

In Games of Property, extraordinary critic Thadious M. Davis presents a blinding new interpretation of William Faulkner’s Go Down, Moses. Davis argues that during its unrelenting awareness to concerns regarding the possession of land and folks, Go Down, Moses ranks between Faulkner’s most interesting and so much entire works. Bringing jointly legislations, social historical past, video game concept, and feminist evaluations, she indicates that the e-book is unified by way of games—fox searching, playing with playing cards and cube, racing—and, just like the legislations, video games are rule-dependent different types of social regulate and observation. She illuminates the twin concentration in Go Down, Moses on estate and possession at the one hand and on masculine activity and social ritual at the different. Games of Property is a masterful contribution to understandings of Faulkner’s fiction and the facility and scope of estate law.
