Now, you can take Thomas Merton as your personal guide in discovering the literary and spiritual genius of Faulkner's works. After looking at the concept of the classical as embodied by John Milton, you will explore Faulkner as a mythmaker and universal storyteller. You will look at how his works demonstrate spiritual and visionary themes." -- Container.
