44 editions published between 1957 and 1995 in English and French and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1957 and 1958 William Faulkner was Writer-in-Residence at the University of Virginia. During that time he held thirty-seven conferences and answered two thousand questions on a wide range of concerns, from exegetic problems in his novels to the role of writer in modern society. Almost every word was recorded on tape, and the result is the classic Faulkner in the University, originally published in 1959. The material collected here offers testimony to some fascinating exchanges between the author and his public and makes up one of the few sourcebooks available on Faulkner's personal views
Robert Penn Warren : a biography by Joseph Blotner( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Penn Warren published ten novels, sixteen volumes of poetry, a book of short stories, two selections of critical essays, a biography, three historical essays, a critical book on Dreiser, a study of Melville, and two studies of race relations in America. In addition, he had an active career as an editor and as a professor of English in America's foremost universities. With All the King's Men, he was awarded his first Pulitzer Prize. Two more Pulitzers followed (for poetry), and he won, as well, virtually all the other major awards for American writers. For almost six decades he was a dominant, influential, and much-loved author. This remarkable career is fully examined for the first time in Joseph Blotner's authoritative biography, in which Red Warren's life turns out to be far more interesting than most of us knew. It is a life that reflects the main currents of twentieth-century American literary activity, a life enhanced by important friendships with Allen Tate, Katherine Anne Porter, Andrew Lytle, Eudora Welty, T.S. Eliot, Cleanth Brooks, Albert Erskine - one of the great American editors - and many others
