Requiem for a Nun
Temple is now married to Gowan Stevens. In an attempt to save her, Temple goes to see the judge to confess her own guilt. Told partly in prose, partly in play form, Requiem for a Nun is a haunting exploration of the impact of the past on the present. A strange book even to come from the pen of the unpredictable Nobel prize winner.
Requiem for a Nun (Text Key 228)
Nancy, a black nursemaid, is about to be hanged for killing her mistress's baby. The mother, Temple Drake, knows the reason why. The night before the execution, a lawyer pleads with Temple to intercede, but will the past allow for justice or absolution in the present? Switching between narrative prose and play script, this is Faulkner's haunting sequel to his earlier bestseller, Sanctuary.

The novel's own history is two decades long, and too complicated to do more than sketch out here. It is a sequel of sorts to a pair of texts Faulkner published twenty years earlier: "That Evening Sun," where Nancy first appears, and Sanctuary , where Temple and Gowan get into the trouble that haunts them and their marriage in the dramatic portions of this novel. In early he resurrected the title, and probably some of the earlier story, though now he conceived of it as a play. This return was prompted by two women with whom it seems he wanted to have an affair: Ruth Ford, an actress whom he first met in the s and who later told him it was her dearest wish to have him write a play for her, and Joan Williams, a year-old college student with literary ambitions who in had sought him out as a mentor. He told each woman separately that he was writing the play solely for her: for Ford to act in, or for Williams to collaborate on. Faulkner pursued the idea of the collaboration throughout the novel's composition, and with Faulkner's approval Ford made revisions in the dialogue when she played Temple in several theatrical productions of Requiem later in the s; in she published that acting text, but as Noel Polk has argued, there is no evidence that anyone but Faulkner was responsible for the novel that was published in
