What would it be like to hear a Nobel Prize winning author speak to your class?
In the late 1950s, English students at the University of Virginia got the opportunity that most American literature scholars would kill for — to speak with William Faulkner.
Faulkner spent two years as the writer-in-residence at UVA, where he gave lectures and readings and took questions from students. The lectures were recorded on reel-to-reel tapes, which have recently been digitized and published online.
You are invited to visit the site "Faulkner at Virginia: An Introduction" where you can read about and listen to William Faulkner's lectures.
