There is no necessity, I suppose, to assert that Mr. Faulkner is Southern.
It would not be easy to discover a more thoroughly Southern pedigree than that of his family.
And, after all, he has lived comfortably at both Oxford, Mississippi, and Charlottesville, Virginia.
The young William Faulkner in New Orleans in the 1920's impressed the novelist Hamilton Basso as obviously conscious of being a Southerner, and there is no evidence that since then he has ever considered himself any less so.
Besides showing no inclination, apparently, to absent himself from his native region even for short periods, and in addition writing a shelf of books set in the region, he has handled in those books an astonishingly complete list of matters which have been important in the South during the past hundred years.
