Two on Faulkner

Even four decades after his death, the monumental legacy of William Faulkner to American letters remains of great importance, and there are a number of websites that commemorate his life and work through various events, conferences, and publications about various aspects of Faulkneria. One such entity is the Center for Faulkner Studies at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Established in 1989 under the direction of Robert Hamblin, the core of the Center's holdings consists of the Brodsky Collection, which itself contains over 2000 pages of manuscript materials and more than 3000 letters. Visitors to the site can search the contents of the Brodsky Collection and search a rather novel area called (appropriately) Faulkneria. Here visitors will find the online archives of the Teaching Faulkner newsletter, some of his most famous quotes, and recent so-called sightings of Faulkner, as referenced in film and television. The second site leads to a site where visitors can listen to Faulkner read excerpts from "As I Lay Dying," "The Old Man," and his much lauded 1949 Nobel Prize acceptance speech. [KMG]
