My edition of William Faulkner's Knight's Gambit is subtitled Six Mystery Stories.I cannot help but think that this is wrong: Faulkner just wasn't into the mystery genre. These aren't whodunits, but rather wry observations of the human condition by a middle aged attorney named Gavin Stevens who is playing the part of a kind of Jedi master to his eighteen year old nephew Charles Mallison/5.

Dramatic power is cut to a minimum Knights gambit. book with it, characterization and clarity. Knight’s Gambit, the novelette that gives this volume its name, is a melodramatic and sentimental piece of trumpery incongruously tricked out in Faulkner’s elaborate late a strange way it travesties, or revises (as if Faulkner, softened by years, were repenting his earlier unrelieved tragic harshness) elements of the story of Candace Compson (“Caddy”) in The Sound and the Fury.

I think this book is wonderful (but then, I am a bit biased). I love good science fiction primarily because it is so rare. This is hard-SF, but I recommend it for people who love a good story first (and consider science a secondary factor).

The last story, Knight's Gambit, was particularly rich in capricious literary capers. I will never be a Faulkner fan. But several of theses stories are quite engaging, and the county lawyer is a charming character, so I'm glad I got the book/5(4).

My overall conclusion of the Knight’s Gambit is that most variations can be played (The Quaade is rather playable, for more info on it consult GM John Shaw’s book The King’s Gambit). The Bishop’s Gambit. The Bishop’s Gambit is technically the oldest variation, having first been analyzed by Ruy Lopez de Segura and Lucena.

The Belgrade Gambit is yet another like the Budapest Gambit, owing it's growth to analysis by chess masters in central Europe. The Four Knights Opening is typically a fairly low key opening with both sides just canceling each other out.

The knights will cover any possible incursion by their opposite numbers. The Schallopp Defense (3 Nf6) – intending 4.e5 Nh5, holding onto the pawn – is considered somewhat inferior [citation needed] and is rarely played today. In one of the lines, White can usually obtain a crushing attack via a rook sacrifice, 4.e5 Nh5 5.d4 g5 6.h4 g4 5 Ng3 4.
