Abstract

In "Foeticide, the conflict between Passion and Morals in William Faulkner's The Wild Palms, I am trying to explore the historically persistent and socially significant theme of abortion. Faulkner depicts the male protagonist's fear of female fertility and tackles the issue of abortion as a matter of individual choice with the withering of romantic love, wretched poverty, and maternal death corresponding with the popular discourse of a mid-twentieth-century U.S. that depicted abortion as tragic.
