William Faulkner's Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech

William Faulkner's Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech i n t e rv i e w ...................... Harold Burson on interviewing Faulkner for the Memphis Commercial Appeal for Poetry" by William R. Ferris "I was probably seventeen years old at the time and just didn't have the questions in depth to ask him." The highlight of his time at Ole Miss was the interview Harold Burson, shown here in 1937, conducted with William Faulkner at the author's home, Rowan Oak, that same year.

Burson's father taught him to read by the age of three using the local newspaper, the Commercial Appeal, as his text. Burson recalls how his father began with "first the big type in the advertisements, then the headlines, finally the news stories." Burson entered school when he was six, and by the second day his teachers moved him to the third grade. He attended Hanes High School--where Elvis Presley studied fifteen years later. While in high school, he regularly wrote articles for both the Hanes High Register and the Commercial Appeal.
