More Information
William Faulkner was born in Mississippi on 25 September 1897 part of a traditional southern family. He dropped out of college to try his hand at poetry, strangely later joining the RAF after claiming to be English. His literary career stuttered and started but found success eventually producing what are regarded as 6 masterpieces in only 6 years, an incredible feat. His standing and importance to American literature cannot be overstated and goes well beyond the confines of this page not to mention the abilities of the person writing this. William Cuthbert Falkner stands alongside Hemingway as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
