Biography and History

American novelist William Faulkner is considered one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century and one of the most important "Southern writers." Known for his experimental styles, he made frequent use of "stream of consciousness" in his writing. Most of his stories are set in his native Mississippi in a fictional county he called Yoknapatawpha. Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, Faulkner was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949.
