More About the Author

Born in 1897 in New Albany, Mississippi, William Faulkner was the son of a family proud of their prominent role in the history of the south. He grew up in Oxford, Mississippi, and left high school at fifteen to work in his grandfather's bank.

Rejected by the US military in 1915, he joined the Canadian flyers with the RAF, but was still in training when the war ended. Returning home, he studied at the University of Mississippi and visited Europe briefly in 1925.

His first poem was published in The New Republic in 1919. His first book of verse and early novels followed, but his major work began with the publication of The Sound and the Fury in 1929. As I Lay Dying (1930), Sanctuary (1931), Light in August (1932), Absalom, Absalom! (1936) and The Wild Palms (1939) are the key works of his great creative period leading up to Intruder in the Dust (1948). During the 1930s, he worked in Hollywood on film scripts, notably The Blue Lamp, co-written with Raymond Chandler.

William Faulkner was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949 and the Pulitzer Prize for The Reivers just before his death in July 1962.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
To read Faulkner and to then contemplate the freshly read sentences is to say that having a cavity-filled wisdom tooth extracted without the benefit of anesthesia is not painful; the final result, however, is worth the pain and journey. Faulkner is either loved or hated, in my mind, by most readers. I, however, love him. He is an acquired taste. I did not appreciate him in high school or college, but then I had not experienced a 25-year Dalwhinnie Single Malt Scotch either. I wouldn't have like any Scotch then. Faulkner to me is that fine Scotch that is appreciated more after years of experience sampling others that just don't hit the mark.
The story of Sutpen and the Coldfields is a complex one that is not easily unraveled by Faulkner's writing. But then again that complex writing make the story all that more compelling. And, after all that, and one must go through all that, the last two paragraphs provide the most satisfaction. The reader must not cheat! The ending will be more provacative and more revealing if one survives all the preceding pages.
