        William Faulkner is a phenomenal name in the American Literature world. He was a proud recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature in The Sound and the Fury is the best and the most read work of the author. On top of that, Light in August is another novel, which became as much popular in its audio version as it was in the print. This American Literature classic was written way back in   William Faulkner was born in New Albany, Mississippi, on Septem His family was rooted in local history: his great-grandfather, a Confederate colonel and state politician, was assassinated by a former partner in , and his grandfather was a wealth lawyer who owned a railroad.4/4(1).

      William Cuthbert Faulkner, Albany, Miss., Sept. 25, , d. July 6, , was one of America's most innovative novelists. He lived most of his life in Oxford, Miss., and his works combine regional traditions and culture with masterful characterization and technical experimentation. The Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to William Faulkner "for his powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American novel".

      Perhaps the most reproduced of Faulkner’s maps, above, comes from 's The Portable Faulkner and was drawn by the author at the request of editor Malcolm Cowley. We see named on the map the locations of settings in The Unvanquished, Sanctuary, The Sound and the Fury, The Hamlet, Go Down, Moses, Light in August, and the stories “A Rose for Emily” and “Old Man,” among others. -William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, William Faulkner illustrates many dimensions of prayer in Light in August: his characters avoid it, abuse it, embrace it, and blame it. In every case, Faulkner portrays prayer's power on the psyche. His fictional world seems Godless, yet his characters' struggle to prevail through prayer.

William Faulkner () was born in New Albany, Mississippi, but his family soon moved to Oxford, Mississippi. The action of almost all of his novels takes place in and around Oxford, which he renames Jefferson, Mississippi. Faulkner, therefore, was very familiar with the type of person presented through the characters of the Bundrens.

Yoknapatawpha County (pronounced [jɒknəpəˈtɔfə]) is a fictional Mississippi county created by the American author William Faulkner, largely based upon and inspired by Lafayette County, Mississippi, and its county seat of Oxford, Mississippi (which Faulkner renamed Jefferson).

Faulkner often referred to Yoknapatawpha County as "my apocryphal county.". William Faulkner’s fictional chronicle of Yoknapatawpha County culminates in his three last novels, rich with the accumulated history and lore of the microcosmic domain where he set most of his work.

Faulkner wanted to use the time remaining to him to achieve a summing-up of his fictional world. "The Bear, " "The Old People, " "A Bear Hunt, " "Race at Morning"--some of Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner's most famous stories are collected in this volume--in which he observed, celebrated, and mourned the fragile otherness that is nature, as well as the cruelty and humanity of men.

"Contains some of Faulkner's best work."5/5(2). In Requiem for a Nun, Faulkner once again displays why he has been lauded for so long with accolades and praise. The book is loaded with masterful prose and deep thematic elements. While the subject matter is dark, as Faulkner almost always is prone to writing about, there’s a tinge of hopefulness that only stark reality can provide/5.

ByWilliam Faulkner was a part-time screenwriter and full-time alcoholic with only one of his seventeen novels—the racy Sanctuary—still in publishing Absalom, Absalom!, he continued to write novels, but stayed financially afloat by penning short stories ("A Rose for Emily," "Red Leaves"), many of which appeared in The Saturday Evening Post.
