História do Livro

Light in August, first published in 1932, is by any standard one of the great novels of the twentieth century.

At its center is the story of Joe Christmas, who does not know whether he is black or white. William Faulkner makes of Joe's tragedy a powerful indictment of racism; at the same time, Joe's life is a study of the divided self, and he becomes in the course of the novela profound symbol of twentieth-century man.

"That was his tragedy" Faulkner said of him; "he didn't know what he was, and so he was nothing. He deliberately evicted himself from the human race because he didn't know which he was... which to me is the most tragic condition a man could find himself in-not to know what he is and to know that he will never know"
