This chapter examines the relationship between William Faulkner and Estelle Oldham during the period from 1903 to 1914. It discusses Estelle's love-at-first-sight account and her claim that she realized that she wanted to marry Faulkner even when she was only seven years old. It suggests that Estelle's account of her relationship with Faulkner is part of efforts to create the image of the Southern Belle complementary to her husband's public image.

Keywords:   William Faulkner, Estelle Oldham, love-at-first-sight, Southern Belle, public image
