The UVA Today article “The Many Faces of William Faulkner” previews a few of the photos, manuscripts, works of art, documents, and artifacts that will be on display in the main exhibition gallery of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library when the Library opens a new exhibition, “Faulkner: Life and Works” on February 6.
According to curator Molly Schwartzburg, the “exhibition covers two bodies of work. There are the literary works that Faulkner composed, and then there’s the person who he became over the course of his life.”
Items taken from the Library’s renowned Faulkner collection span the life of the Nobel Laureate, from early childhood through his cadet training as a pilot during WWI; from the time he spent working on film scripts in Hollywood’s Golden Age through early literary success and his years (1957–’58) as UVA’s first Balch Writer-in-Residence.
