Faulkner and Love

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the shifting roles and role models of William Faulkner during his teenage years. It explains that when Faulkner quit school at the age of 15, he committed himself to becoming a poet and visual artist and simultaneously he began some serious role-playing. It describes Faulkner's image as a dandy and a warrior, his transformation from a poseur to an artist. This chapter also explains the influence of role-playing on the way Faulkner handled the notion of the impostor in his writing.

Keywords:   William Faulkner, role models, poet, visual artist, role-playing, impostor
