  • "A Fable tells the story of Corporal Stephen, an allegorical figure whose traitorous actions stop, briefly, fighting in a small part of the front in France during the First World War. Told from various perspectives, A Fable explores the humanity of war and the nature of power. Author William Faulkner considered A Fable to be his masterpiece, and laboured more than a decade on the manuscript. The novel won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and is now considered one of the major works in Faulkner's canon.
