One day, one novel: William Faulkner's Go Down, Moses | Institute of Continuing Education skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education

Faulkner’s great novel of intersecting stories centres on the long life of Ike McCaslin, who renounced but couldn’t escape his slave-owning heritage. Looking back to Indian days, following the sweep of southern history from antebellum life to ‘Jim Crow’, Faulkner considers race, friendship, miscegenation, ecology, and the tenacious hold of vainglory — and this course follows him, exploring the wonderfully charged prose that charts the enduring moral wound which the institution of slavery inflicted.
