William Faulkner (1897–1962) was the third American to receive the Nobel Prize in literature. This was in 1949 and came after many years of novel writing, beginning with "The Marble Faun" in 1924. Most of Faulkner's works are set in his native state of Mississippi. He is considered one of the most important Southern writers along with Mark Twain, Robert Penn Warren, Flannery O'Connor, Truman Capote, Eudora Welty, and Tennessee Williams.
