Faulkner in the university : class conferences at the University of Virginia, 1957-1958 by William Faulkner( Book )
38 editions published between 1959 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,280 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 over two thousand questions on a wide range of concerns, from exegetic problems in his novels to the role of the 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 and now available for the first time in a paperback edition." "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. As the writer himself commented, "These are questions answered without rehearsal or preparation, by a man old enough in the craft of the human heart to have learned that there are no definitive answers to anything, yet still young enough in spirit to believe that truth may still be found provided one seeks enough, tests and discards, and still tries again.""--BOOK JACKET
Robert Penn Warren : a biography by Joseph Blotner( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,250 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
