Abstract:

"Eudora Welty (1909-2001) and William Faulkner (1897-1962) were Mississippi's foremost literary lions of the twentieth century. Their influence on American literature is immeasurable. As Faulkner's compatriot and as a fellow writer, Welty had a unique view of his work. For her comprehensive vision and for her understanding discussions of his art she is one of the most astute critics of the Faulknerian legacy." "On William Faulkner, a record of her admiration, brings together Welty's essays, lectures, and musings on Faulkner. These include such gems as her reviews of Intruder in the Dust and The Selected Letters of William Faulkner, her impassioned defense of Faulkner's work (published as a letter to the New Yorker), her comments when she presented the Gold Medal for Fiction to Faulkner at the National Institute of Arts and Letters awards ceremony in 1962, an excerpt from a letter she wrote to the novelist Jean Stafford, telling of meeting Faulkner and of going sailing with him, and the obituary of the Nobel laureate that Welty wrote for the Associated Press." "In addition, this collection reprints the cryptic postcard Faulkner wrote to Welty from Hollywood and publishes for the first time a caricature of Faulkner that Welty drew in the 1930s, about fifteen years before she met him."--BOOK JACKET.
