Faulkner and Love

This chapter examines William Faulkner's education, focusing on his transition from honor roll to truancy during the period from 1907 to 1914. It suggests that Faulkner's withdrawal from any organized education was influenced by his continuing education into codes and laws of white supremacy and his experience in personally witnessing the mutilation and lynching of an African American man. It also discusses the influence of the dramatization of Thomas Dixon's The Clansman on Faulkner.

Keywords:   William Faulkner, education, honor roll, truancy, white supremacy, mutilation, lynching, African American man, The Clansman, Thomas Dixon
