About (Profile/Biography):
William Cuthbert Faulkner, a top known writer, was born on September 25, 1897. A native of Lafayette County, Mississippi, Faulkner spent most of his life in a fictional county called Yoknapatawpha County, which was modeled after Lafayette County, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life. It is widely considered that Faulkner is one of the greatest writers of Southern literature, and he is a Nobel Prize laureate as well as one of the most celebrated authors in American literature.
When Faulkner was 17, he met Phil Stone, who was one of the earliest influences on his writing that had a profound effect on him. 
Soldiers' Pay was Faulkner's first novel, and it was written in New Orleans.
As Faulkner was preparing to write his first novel, Flags in the Dust, set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County he was creating, he wrote it during the summer of 1927. 
The Sound and the Fury is a work that Faulkner began working on shortly after he turned 31 in the autumn of 1928. 
During his time working at the University of Mississippi Power House at night, he began working on the novel As I Lay Dying in 1929. In 1930, the book was published in the United States.
A new novel by Faulkner was written in 1943, combining elements of the Passion of Christ with a World War I novel, The Unknown Soldier.
1954: Pulitzer Prize
1949: Nobel Prize in Literature
