Final Jeopardy Explanation – Thursday, November 9 2023

In 1950, the Swedish Academy awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature to William Faulkner, describing him as a “essentially a regional writer” and that “he mourns for and, as a writer, exaggerates a way of life which he himself, with his sense of justice and humanity, would never be able to stomach. It is this that makes his regionalism universal.”

William Faulkner, an American author, is best known for his works set in the American South, particularly in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, which was based on and inspired by the region of Mississippi where he lived.

His exploration of universal themes such as the human condition, moral dilemmas, and the deeply complex nature of societal and familial relationships garnered wide acclaim.

This combination of detailed regional depiction with themes of broader human relevance is what the Swedish Academy recognized as making Faulkner’s “regionalism universal.” His works, including novels like “The Sound and the Fury,” “As I Lay Dying,” and “Absalom, Absalom!,” remain influential in both American literature and the wider literary world.
