Author Bio

William Faulkner

William Faulkner (born September 25, 1897 in New Albany, Mississippi) was an influential writer, having written multiple novels, poems, short stories, and an occasional screenplay. Some of Faulkner’s most prominent novels include such as The Sound and the Fury and As I Lay Dying. Unknown to most initially, Faulkner became one of the most important writers in history when he received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1949 for “his powerful and atistically unique contribution to the modern American novel”. Faulkner was also a two-time Pulitzer prize winner (1955 and 1962) for his minor novels, A Fable and his last novel, The Reivers. He died in Byhalia, Mississippi on July 6, 1962.
