Synopsis[ edit ] The book takes place in France during World War I and stretches through the course of one week in Corporal Stephan, who represents the reincarnation of Jesusorders 3, troops to disobey orders to attack in the brutally repetitive trench warfare.
In return, the Germans do not attack, and the war stops when soldiers realize that it takes two sides to fight a war.
The Generalissimo, who represents leaders who use war to gain power, invites his German counterpart to discuss how to restart the war.
He then arrests and executes Stefan. Before Stefan's execution, the Generalissimo tries to convince the corporal that war can never be stopped because it is the essence of human nature. Following the execution of the Corporal, his body is returned to his wife and his sisters, and he is buried in Vienne-la-pucelle.
However, after the conflict has resumed, the Corporal's grave is destroyed in a barrage of artillery.
The spirit of the Corporal has transferred to a British message runner, who eventually confronts the old Generalissimo.
Critical analysis[ edit ] In his contemporary review of A Fable, Philip Blair Rice noted that the novel returned Faulkner in subject matter to the one general subject that engaged him besides Mississippi, the First World War.
King has interpreted A Fable as the one major attempt by Faulkner to depict political action in his novels, and has characterised the novel as "Faulkner's failed political novel".'Myth is an image, an action out of which truth emerges,.2 Myths is events, happenings larger than itself.
The fable is a rnoral to which fictional circumstances must be accommodated.
