This chapter examines the shifting professional alliance of William Faulkner during the period from 1914 to 1918. It discusses Phil Stone's mentorship of Faulkner and Faulkner's claim that it was the sexually ambiguous Algernon Charles Swinburne in whom he first found “a flexible vessel into which he might put his own vague emotional shapes without breaking them.” It also discusses his treatment of sexual love in his translation of “L'Aprers-midi d'un faune”.

Keywords:   William Faulkner, Phil Stone, Algernon Charles Swinburne, sexual love, mentorship, L'Aprers-midi d'un faune
