Scholarly editions:

Under the editorial direction of Noel Polk, most of Faulkner's novels have been re-released under the designation "The Corrected Text," in which Polk has gone back to the original manuscripts and galley proofs to restore as much as possible Faulkner's original intended words, phrases, and punctuation that for whatever reason had been altered in the earliest published editions of his books. They are available singularly in editions published by Vintage and the Modern Library.

They are available also in the collected volumes published by the Library of America, which to date has published three Faulkner volumes, each with Polk's corrected text of four novels and with notes by Joseph Blotner. They are as follows:
  • William Faulkner: Novels, 1930-1935: As I Lay Dying, Sanctuary, Light in August, Pylon. Edited by Joseph Blotner. New York: Library of America, 1985.
  • William Faulkner: Novels, 1936-1940: Absalom, Absalom!, The Unvanquished, If I Forget Thee, Jerusalem, The Hamlet. Edited by Joseph Blotner. New York: Library of America, 1990
  • William Faulkner: Novels, 1942-1954: Go Down, Moses, Intruder in the Dust, Requiem for a Nun, A Fable. Edited by Joseph Blotner. New York: Library of America, 1994.

Norton has published a Critical Edition of The Sound and the Fury, which includes Polk's corrected text along with the Compson Appendix, selected letters by Faulkner, and a number of critical studies of the novel, and more recently has issued facsimile reproductions of Faulkner's first two novels, Soldiers' Pay and Mosquitoes, which for a long time were out of print.
