contact email: 

As a fiction writer, William Faulkner saw himself as a failed poet. Many themes that crop up in his poetry, however, make appearances in his fiction writing, as well. This special session welcomes, but is not limited to, abstracts that examine Faulkner's poetry, the connections between his poetry and his fiction, common themes between his poetry and his fiction, etc. Please send 250-300 word abstracts to Victoria M. Bryan (VMBryan@olemiss.edu) by May 15, 2011.
