Selected Letters. By William Faulkner. Limited First Edition. Franklin Library. Franklin Center, 1976.

$45.00

Born and raised in Mississippi, William Faulkner came to define Southern literature and become the region’s greatest author. His achievements included two Pulitzer prizes and a Nobel Prize in Literature. Of American authors of the twentieth century, he is ranked high. He is often grouped among Modernists like Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald; although, his works are notably more difficult than those authors, and might be more accurately compared to his contemporaries across the Atlantic, such as James Joyce or Virginia Woolf. In this large volume, the Franklin Library offers an intimate glimpse into William Faulkner’s life and genius through his selected letters. The letters span the majority of his career, from the 1910s to the early 1960s. They include correspondence with friends, family, and contemporaries, and provide insight into his writing processes and philosophies. Because Faulkner never published a memoir, his letters are our best entry point into his personal and artistic life.

This limited first edition is in fine condition. In the original brown leather, elaborately gilt stamped. Raised bands. Gilt spine label. Text block fine. Gilt edges. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in. With the publisher’s original First Edition Society pamphlet laid in.
