About the Author: William Faulkner

William Cuthbert Faulkner was a Nobel Prize-winning American novelist and short story writer. One of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, his reputation is based mostly on his novels, novellas, and short stories. He was also a published poet and an occasional screenwriter.

The majority of his works are based in his native state of Mississippi. Though his work was published as early as 1919, and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner was relatively unknown until receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American novel." Faulkner has often been cited as one of the most important writers in the history of American literature. Faulkner was influenced by the european modernism, and employed the Stream of consciousness in several of his novels.

Dans Une rose pour Emily, Emily Grierson, recluse dans sa vaste demeure remplie d'ombres et de poussière, vit depuis quarante ans avec le cadavre décomposé de l'homme qu'elle aima.Soleil couchant chante le «blues» bouleversant de Nancy, la Noire qui remplace la gouvernante malade auprès des enfants Compson.Quant à Septembre ardent, c'est sans doute la plus pénétrante des analyses du lynchage : un impénitent redresseur de torts tente en vain de s'opposer au lynchage d'un Noir, injustement accusé d'avoir attaqué insulté, terrorisé une fille blanche à qui le regret de sa jeunesse et l'indifférence des hommes ont tourné la tête.
