Faulkner made his debut as a published writer at the age of 21 with the poem "L'Après-midi d'un Faune", which appeared in The New Republic on August 6, 1919.

The Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner (1897-1962) visited the United States Military Academy at West Point less than three months before his death in 1962. On the night of April 19 he read aloud episodes from his forthcoming novel The Reivers before an audience of cadets, faculty, and staff. After the reading he answered questions about his own work and about the art of writing. Later he met the press publicly and responded graciously to probing questions. The following morning he met with cadets in two advanced literature courses and discussed a wide range of subjects--his philosophy of life, his writings, his views on America.

All these sessions were tape recorded and photographed. Two members of the English department at West Point edited the transcriptions of the tapes for this volume. It is reprinted in this new edition in commemoration of Faulkner's sojourn to the academy forty years ago and of the academy's bicentennial.

Faulkner at West Point, first published in 1964, includes a new preface, an introduction, and reflections on the historic visit written by two graduates who were present as cadets during the Nobel writer's appearance.

All these materials, along with the original text, testify to the import of Faulkner's visit and, at times, to the curmudgeonly Faulkner's obliging good will in answering questions about himself and the writing process. This memorable book documents not only the collegial spirit of fellowship that Faulkner enjoyed while at the academy but also the great writer's thoughts and opinions expressed shortly before his death.

William Faulkner, a Mississippian, was one of the most admired and renowned writers of the twentieth century. Among his works are The Sound and the Fury, Light in August, Absalom, Absalom!, Sanctuary, and As I Lay Dying.

Joseph L. Fant and Robert Ashley, now retired, were professors of English at the U.S. Military Academy.

At the time I wasn't a fan of his writing - it all seemed to be about unpleasant people in unpleasant situations. Then he read to us excerpts from his work in progress, The Reivers. It was a delightful story and it opened my eyes to the full scope of his work. In subsequent Q&A sessions with cadets during his visit he spoke to us extensively and extemporaneously in small groups about a wide range of topics - the equivalent of a graduate seminar by a distinguished author (who admitted to being surprised by the intellectual curiosity of the cadets he encountered!)

Faulkner died later that year.

The Faulkner family agreed that royalties from the sale of the book would be applied to the creation of a Faulkner Library Room, now located in the Department of English and Philosophy at West Point. In the attached photograph taken in the Faulkner Room, 1962 graduates present a set of books to members of the Department of E&P for inclusion in the Faulkner collection.
