      Only in Oxford – Rowan Oak

      Many people know the name of William Faulkner’s Oxford home Rowan Oak, but they may not know its relation to Scottish folklore. According to legend, the rowan tree is a symbol of protection that some believe wards off evil spirits.

          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)

              Farewell, Faulkner stuff. Come back soon.

              Lots of William Faulkner memorabilia, including his Nobel Prize for Literature, have been on loan and display at the University of Mississippi. Possibly no more, News Editor Jonathan Scott writes as he looks into the possibility of valuable items being sold at auction. His wish for all of us is that the next buyer sends them back where they belong – to Oxford, Ole Miss and Lafayette County. (April 11, 2013, Page 4A)
