Faulkner

William Faulkner was born in New Albany, Mississippi on September
25, 1897 and then moved to Oxford, Mississippi with his family at the age of 5. Most of the novels
written by William Faulkner take place in the area in which he himself was born and raised. He
renames Oxford and calls this place Jefferson, Mississippi. Faulkner is a contemporary American
author who has achieved greatness as an author. He is already considered to be one of the world?s
greatest novelists and has been awarded with the Nobel Prize for literature in 1949. This is quite an
achievement as it is the highest prize that can be awarded to an author. Of all of Faulkner?s
achievements, “The Sound and the Fury” is considered to be one of his greatest novels. Faulkner
was part of a distinguished family in Mississippi. His name was originally spelled Falkner. The “u”
was added by mistake when his first novel was published and William Falkner decided to retain the
spelling of “Faulkner”. The most distinguished member of William Faulkner?s family was his
great-grandfather, Confederate Colonel William Cuthbert Falkner. The Colonel first moved to
Mississippi in the early part of the 19th century from his home
