William Faulkner

DID YOU KNOW?

WILLIAM FAULKNER (1897 - 1962)

William Faulkner is considered to be one of the most influential authors of all time.
He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1949 (receiving it in 1950).
His books, A Fable (1955) and The Reivers (1963), both won the Pulitzer Prizes.

By primarily depicting the peoples and culture of his native Mississippi, William Faulkner helped to define the modern southern-American-influenced style of the 20th century.

Born to a well-to-do family, this amazing author grew up in one of the poorest towns in the United States.  Denied entry into the U.S. Air Force because of his height, he enlisted in the RAF - that was when he changed his name from 'Falkner' to 'Faulkner' (as it appeared more British than American) and he affected an accent to complete his new persona.  

William Faulkner's books, The Sound and the Fury and As I Lay Dying, are two of the most read books in the world.  He's managed to have more literary success in a decade than most have accomplished in a lifetime!

Nobel Prize In Literature

DID YOU KNOW?


When I think about the Nobel Prize, I think about science or peace.  I didn't realize they were given to recognize writers.  Considering my love for literature and my status as an author, this fascinated me.

DID YOU KNOW:
  • Any of SIX prizes are awarded annually, traditionally on the day that the founder, Alfred Nobel died.
The prize amount
(1 to 3 winners are selected.  The amount is shared amongst the Laureates.)


1901-2018: 110 prizes awarded to 114 laureates.
  • Nobel Laureates are selected and awarded by the Nobel Foundation - a board of deputies appointed by Norwegian Parliament and some learned societies of Sweden.
