Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

Ole Miss Juvenilia
William Faulkner


Faulkner’s prolific publication history began at the age of 16 with poems and sketches for the Ole Miss campus newspaper, The Mississippian. The author continued to contribute to the publication throughout his student days at the university as well as after dropping out. These early works of poetry and prose reflect his gift for keen observations and the growing refinement of his voice as one of the greatest of America’s Southern authors. Eighteen of Faulkner’s elegant pen-and-ink drawings provide an atmospheric complement to the selections.

The Introduction is by noted Faulkner scholar Carvel Collins.
