Some doubted the affect Faulkner’s writings would have on Oxford

Announcement of the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Literature to William Faulkner came on Nov. 10, 1950.
Under the title “I Know William Faulkner,” his friend, mentor and fellow Oxonian, Phil Stone, wrote in the Nov. 16 issue of the Oxford EAGLE about his lifelong friendship with the now world famous author. Noted New York critic, scholar and translator, Stark Young, also of Oxford, took exception to this statement. (July 23, 2010, Page 3B)
