Faulkner: Life and Works

This exhibition surveys one of the greatest archives of American literature: the University of Virginia’s William Faulkner collections. Manuscripts of eight novels are displayed alongside first editions and key archival documents. The novelist’s life is narrated through the personae he inhabited: artist, aviator, screenwriter, Nobel prizewinner, white southerner, and UVA writer-in-residence are just some of those featured. Die-hard fans, the general public, and even the Faulkner-phobic will find the unexpected in the items on display.
