William Faulkner created an immense gallery of vivid and unforgettable characters in his portrayal of the southern social aftermath of the Civil War. In most of his novels set in the imaginary Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, he created a complex social structure from which he explored the southern past, race relations, and the alienation felt by his contemporaries in that volatile society.

He was also known for employing other facets of his life including odd jobs and his grandfather's violent death at the war in Sartoris. He did not receive any real popular success until Sanctuary in 1931. In the thirties he came to be known for the melodramatic violence in his writing and for exposing the tragic aspects of southern history.

His career culminated with a Pulitzer Prize for A Fable. Other works include Soldier's Pay, Mosquitoes, The Sound and the Fury, Light in August, The Mansion and The Reivers.
