Each chapter is written by an expert contributor and surveys the contributions of that approach to Faulkner scholarship. The volume concludes with a selected, general bibliography and glossary of critical terms.''William Faulkner is one of the most widely read and studied American writers.

Myself and the world : a biography of William Faulkner by Robert W Hamblin( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Faulkner (1897-1962) once said of his novels and stories, "I am telling the same story over and over, which is myself and the world." This concise and readable biography provides an overview of the life and career of the famous author, demonstrating the interrelationships of that life, centered in Oxford, Mississippi, with the characters and events of his fictional world. The book begins with a chapter on Faulkner's most famous ancestor, W.C. Falkner, "the Old Colonel," who greatly influenced both the content and the form of Faulkner's fiction. The book then proceeds to examine the highlights of Faulkner's biography, from his childhood to his youthful days as a fledgling poet, through his time in New Orleans, the creation of Yoknapatawpha, and the years of genius, on through his time in Hollywood, and his winning of the Nobel Prize. The book concludes with a description of his last years as revered author, cultural ambassador, and university writer-in-residence. In his Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech Faulkner spoke of "the agony and sweat of the human spirit" that goes into artistic creation. For Faulkner, that struggle was especially acute. Poor and neglected for much of his life, suffering from chronic depression and the disease of alcoholism, unhappy in his personal life--Faulkner overcame tremendous obstacles to achieve his success. One of the major themes of his novels and stories is endurance, and his biography exhibits that quality in abundance. Faulkner the man endured, and he ultimately prevailed. Not only his books, but also his life, can inspire others to do the same"

Living in Mississippi : the life and times of Evans Harrington by Robert W Hamblin( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert W. Hamblin elevates Evans Harrington (1925-1997), as well as his remarkable achievements and writings, introducing his legacy to a new generation. Harrington continually found himself in conflict with the conservative, and often reactionary, institutions of his society--be they educational, political, or religious. Yet unlike many Mississippi liberals and moderates of his day--white as well as black--Harrington did not leave the state for a freer environment or better opportunities elsewhere. Except for his military service, he stayed in Mississippi his entire life, and his presence made a difference. In 1962, Harrington openly supported the enrollment of James Meredith, the first African American student to attend Ole Miss. In 1965, he invited African American students from Tougaloo College to attend the Southern Literary Festival hosted by Ole Miss--the first meeting of that organization to be integrated. In 1972, as faculty sponsor of Images, the Ole Miss literary journal, he joined his student writers in a successful suit against the university's attempt to suppress an issue of the magazine that contained controversial content. In 1996, Harrington united with other ACLU members to support the cause of Lisa Herdahl, who had brought suit against the North Pontotoc, Mississippi, School Board for allowing sectarian prayers and devotionals in public school classrooms. Hamblin presents these and other examples, showing Harrington both as an exception to and as a representative figure of his time and place. This biography also explores Harrington and his writings, which include "Living in Mississippi," a personal essay about being a white liberal in segregated Mississippi; several short stories; a novel, The Prisoners; and three popular novels issued under the pseudonym Gilbert Terrell: Willa, Missy, and Lily, as well as a number of unpublished manuscripts. Harrington also coedited, with Ann J. Abadie, four volumes of papers presented at the annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference, which he cofounded"--
