Faulkner at the University

In May 2008, the University of Virginia Magazine produced a short documentary about Faulkner's time in Charlottesville.


Faulkner's work was set in Yoknapatawpha County, a fictional county in Mississippi. In 2013, University of Virginia English professor Stephen Railton received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a digital resource to map and study the fictional county[2].
