|About William Faulkner
Faulkner, William (1897-1962), American author, born in New Albany, Miss. In 1918 while serving in the
British Royal Air-Force, he took courses at Oxford University; on his return to the U.S., he attended the
University of Mississippi from 1919 to 1921, and from 1922 to 1924 was employed as postmaster there.
Subsequently he moved to New Orleans where, while working as a journalist, he became friendly with
Sherwood Anderson, whose influence is shown in both the subject matter and style of his novels, the first of
which, Soldiers Pay, was published in 1926. William Faulkner portrayed the decadence of the South in
many of his novels and short stories, using for their background the environment of his youth in Mississippi.
William Faulkner varied the stream-of-consciousness style of writing; instead of presenting his story
completely through the reactions of an observer, he unfolded it largely by means of the flow of
consciousness in the minds of the participating characters. The quality of Faulkner's novels The Sound and
the Fury (1929) and Sanctuary (1931) won him a place among the major figures of contemporary
American literature. He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1948 and received
the 1949 Nobel Peace Prize for literature.
