As Lucas Beauchamp sits in jail after being accused of shooting a white man in cold blood, he asks his uncle, a lawyer, for help. The case hinges upon the type of bullet killed the man—and Lucas swears if they dig up the body, it won’t be one that came from his gun. When his uncle refuses to help him, two teenagers, along with a wily septuagenarian, take justice into their own hands. In Intruder in the Dust, (his fourteenth novel,) author William Faulkner explores themes of social justice in the racially charged south, as the truth surrounding the murder case finally comes to light. The character of Lucas Beauchamp was first introduced in the short story, “The Fire and the Heart,” included both here and in the collection, Go Down, Moses. Intruder in the Dust was made into a feature film in 1949, and was shot in Faulkner’s home town of Oxford, Mississippi.
