The words of William C. Faulkner have been read around the world. He is considered the greatest 20th century writer. Faulkner confined most of his work to his fictional county of Yoknapatawpha - which reflected his ’postage stamp of native soil". His landscape reflected real people and real places .
The Faulkner Literary Garden located one block away from his birth site brings his landscape to life with the plants about which he wrote, paired with quotes from his work.
