A little William Faulkner for everyone

William Faulkner was a risk-taker, innovator and experimentalist when it came to language and storytelling.

“He’s one of the most important innovators of the 20th century,” said Jay Watson, University of Mississippi Howry Professor of Faulkner Studies. “Faulkner writes about people who are saturated in history and have an undeniable sense that the past is still with us shaping our outlook on life.”

Watson is in charge of the 2014 Faulkner & Yoknapatawpha Conference that begins Sunday and continues through July 24 in Oxford. The theme is “Faulkner and History.” (July 16, 2014, Page 1)
