(p.3) Introduction
The Dixie Limited
M. Thomas Inge
University Press of Mississippi

This book examines what William Faulkner has meant to his fellow writers both in the United States and abroad. Few modern authors, except perhaps James Joyce, have had so profound an influence throughout the world as has Faulkner. He has been called a “writer's writer,” one who is held up as a preceptor and model for other writers to emulate. Novelists, playwrights, and poets have expressed their varying opinions on the value of Faulkner's example as a creative writer. This book contains essays, articles, reviews, letters, and interviews published over the last eight decades by novelists, poets, and dramatists about Faulkner, his fiction, and the power of his accomplishment. These include Donald Davidson, Stephen Vincent Benét, Richard Wright, Eudora Welty, and Gabriel García Márquez.

Keywords:   writers, William Faulkner, novelists, poets, dramatists, fiction, Donald Davidson, Stephen Vincent Benét, Eudora Welty, Gabriel García Márquez
