Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a youthful book (not because it would be a student's thesis, a researcher's work - it's that too - but because its author thinks she has the eye to see the truth of what she reads (and she has too the spirit to tell exactly what she sees). And seeing that truth, the lady who wrote it did something very valuable for the Faulkner studiosus (who, anyway, has a hard time, with such bibliographies in front of him or her): For Margaret Harrell makes us see and feel what it would be like to be Faulkner. Of course, one could guess what that would be like, the more so because the Master himself has said it: 'An artist is a creature driven by demons . . . and he doesn't know why they should choose him, and he's usually too busy to wonder why.' Now, Margaret Harrell, herself an artist (for she is a very delicate, and at the same time, very thoughtful, serious, meditative poet, the author of that wonder, a many-volumed poem, Love in Transition), wisely imitated the Master, not trying to write about why Faulkner was who he was but how he did that. So that her slender but brilliantly intelligent book looks for that alone which in the many sounds and deep furies of Faulkner's world (where, of course, it is not very easy to live and to endure) make up that instant 'of timeless beatitude,' that instant in which all that it takes to make a life, 'take on a splendid and timeless beauty.' And, of course, being a poet herself, Ms. Harrell finds that moment and that beauty and, what is more and, I think this is the point of her book, she finds the mark Faulkner made, in creating and recreating his world. For, as Margaret Harrell tells us in her book, man leaves behind and after him what he does. And being, as she says, an heir to Faulkner's birthday, chances are she is right." Mircea Ivanescu, poet, translator, medaille d'or life achievement award, Romania --back, jacket copy

From the Author

Marking Time with Faulkner began at Columbia University as a Master's thesis under the supervision of poet/critic Dr. John Unterecker (author of Voyager: A Life of Hart Crane). It was later expanded into the book.

More About the Author

"KEEP THIS QUIET! III: INITIATIONS" was lauched at the 2014 Gonzo Fest in Louisville. There are YouTube snippets on http://www.margaretharrell.com.
"Keep This Quiet! I: My Relationship with Hunter S. Thompson, Milton Klonsky, and Jan Mensaert" features the very voice of Hunter, as he writes lively letters while undergoing ordeals inside the publishing world in finalizing "Hell's Angels." What happened back then? This book will tell you. No other book has. "Keep This Quiet Too!" continues the story in print & e-book.

Harrell was 3 times a Fellow at MacDowell Colony for artists. Marrying a Belgian poet, she lived in Morocco, then took a sharp turn into spiritual growth. She moved to Zurich to study at the C. G. Jung Institute and there had a dramatic "Confrontation with the Self," or as Jung termed it, "Confrontation with the Unconscious." The "Love in Transition" series burst at the seams to absorb the jolts in consciousness that followed. These included at times a computer that in a form of psychokinesis transformed the look of the page as it was being printed. Cloud photography (first in dreams) became a major outlet in the 90s; she has exhibited internationally. An explorer and experimenter, Margaret uses this creative flair in all things.
