The new novel by the 1950 winner of the Nobel Prize for literature is one of the most notable achievements of William Faulkner's distinguished career. In form a startling departure from his previous nineteen books, it marks yet another advance in his powers as a story-teller and chronicler of his people and his time. Requiem for a Nun reaffirms William Faulkner's almost undisputed position as the most renowned novelist in the world today.

"I decline to accept the end of man. It is easy enough to say that man is immortal simply because he will endure; that when the last ding-dong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tide-less in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still he one more sound: that of his puny inexhaustible voice, still talking. I refuse to accept this. I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an in-exhaustible voice but he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet's, the writer's, duty is to write about these things." —WILLIAM FAULKNER, the Nobel Prize Speech, December 10,1950
