Sell Your William Faulkner Mosquitoes 1st Edition
Mosquitoes is a satiric novel by the American author William Faulkner. The book was first publishes in 1927 by the New York-based publishing house Boni & Liveright and is the author’s second novel. Sources conflict regarding whether Faulkner wrote Mosquitoes during his time living in Paris, beginning in 1925 of in Pascagoula, Mississippi in the summer of 1926. It is, however, widely agreed upon that not only its setting, but also its content clearly reference Faulkner’s personal involvement in the New Orleans creative community where he spent time before moving to France.
The city of New Orleans and a yacht on Lake Pontchartrain are the two primary settings for the novel. Beginning and ending in the city, the story follows a diverse cast of artists, aesthetes, and adolescents as they embark on a four-day excursion aboard the motorized yacht, the Nausikaa, owned by a wealthy patron of the arts.
The novel is organized into six section: a prologue which introduces the characters, four body sections each of which documents a day of the yacht trip hour-by-hour, and a epilogue which returns the characters, changed or unchanged, to their lives off the boat.
