You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore. William Faulkner
These short works offer three different approaches to Faulkner, each representative of his work as a whole. "Spotted Horses" is a hilarious account of a horse auction, and pits the cold practicality of women against the boyish folly of men. "Old Man" is something of an adventure story. When a flood ravages the countryside of the lower Mississippi, a convict finds himself adrift with a pregnant woman. And "The Bear," perhaps his best known shorter work, is the story of a boy's coming to terms wit the adult world. By learning how to hunt, the boy is taught the real meaning of pride, humility, and courage.
