Summary
"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 reading he answered questions about his works 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. Professors Joseph Fant and Robert Ashley edited the transcriptions of the tapes for a book devoted to the memorable occasion. Published in 1964, it is reprinted in this new edition in remembrance of Faulkner's sojourn to the Academy and of the Academy's bicentennial." "Faulkner at West Point 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."--BOOK JACKET
