William Faulkner

(1897-1962)

American Author
The imaginary Yoknapatawpha County

Having dropped out of high school in 1915, none the less, Faulkner became a Nobel Prize Laureate 34 years later.


This native of in New Albany, Mississipi, joined the Royal Air Force during World War II, worked as postmaster at the University of Mississippi, temporarily worked for a New York bookstore and a New Orleans newspaper, performed all kind of odd jobs and wrote some "Mississippi Poems" before publishing his first novel in 1926 - Soldiers' Pay , with little success.


In 1929, however, The Sound and the Fury was the first milestone of a remarkable series of novels to come over the next eight following years. Faulkner then began to try out various new forms of storytelling.


In 1936, Faulkner published Absalom, Absalom!, a dive into southern history and memory, then his remarkable As I Lay Dying (1930), Light in August (1932), and Intruder in the Dust (1948).
