小说家威廉.福克纳 (William Faulkner) 出生

小说家威廉.福克纳对南方相当熟悉。他的一生中有大多数时候都是住在南方,并且为文描述他所认识的家庭,社区,以及朋友的热情。福克纳于1897925日在密西西比州的新阿尔巴尼 (New Albany) 出生,他创造了传奇的约克纳帕塔瓦郡 (Yoknapatawpha County) 。这个都市里虚构的人物包括有南方白种贵族、商人、农夫、穷苦的白人,以及受到压迫的黑人等等。福克纳指出南方的过去如何影响南方现在的情形:「过去永远不死,甚至从未退出。」

Novelist William Faulkner knew the South well. He spent most of his life there, and wrote with compassion about family, community, and the people he knew. Born in New Albany, Mississippi, on September 25, 1897, Faulkner created the legendary Yoknapatawpha County. Its fictitious population includes Southern white aristocrats, merchants, farmers, poor whites, and persecuted blacks. Faulkner told how the South is still affected by its past. "The past is never dead," he wrote. "It's not even past."
