Abstract:

The writer who best represents 20th-century Southern narrative led an existence every bit as colorful and dramatic as his fictional sagas. This program recounts William Faulkner's life and the great literary works it produced, exploring his affinity for the tragic and whimsical aspects of a decaying, racially fractured South. The film describes his early ambitions, family life, alcoholism, stints in Hollywood, and his eventual garnering of the Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes, and National Book Award, all within the framework of his vast literary output. Summaries of novels Soldier's Pay, Sartoris, The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, Sanctuary, Light in August, and Absalom, Absalom! highlight the author's recurring themes of loss, faded glory, and dignity in the face of mortality.
