This chapter examines William Faulkner's childhood world from 1896 to 1907. It attempts to re-create the volatile emotional and psychological currents flowing in the bitterly racialized political, domestic, and social worlds into which he was born and in which he lived. It outlines the shifting dynamics in Faulkner's white family during this period and the influence of the Jim Crow culture on Faulkner.

Keywords:   William Faulkner, childhood, racialized political world, white family, domestic world, social world, Jim Crow culture
