Abstract

It is no exaggeration to say that religion exerts great influence on Faulkner and a lot of his fictions, which may be the key to the interpretation of his novels. This paper tries to exemplify the influence of Bible on Faulkner through the discussion of his narrative structure, theme, Christian characters, and images and symbols in his novels. By doing so, it is hoped to be able to offer a thorough and deeper understanding of Faulkner, and shed a new light on his works.
