William Faulkner (1897-1962) was a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author, recognized for A Fable in 1955 and The Reivers in 1963. The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, and Light in August were recognized by The Modern Library on their 1998 list of 100 Best English-language Novels of the 20th Century. Faulkner primarily set his stories in the American South, many of which took place in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County. While teaching at Tulane University’s School of Architecture in the mid-1920s, William Spratling shared a house with Faulkner in New Orleans. During this period, Faulkner was in the process of shifting his writing from poetry to short stories and novels.
