This chapter examines William Faulkner's creative activity during the period from 1919 to 1921. It explains that this period marks the most innovative period of Faulkner's long self-apprenticeship to poetry and explains that his bursts of creativity coincided with Estelle Oldham's two extended visits home during the first years of her marriage to Cornell Franklin. It also suggests that their renewed contact and ensuing dialogue were crucial to Faulkner's transition from a poet to a novelist.

Keywords:   William Faulkner, poetry, creativity, Estelle Oldham, Cornell Franklin, poet, novelist
