Post subject:  A video essay over William Faulkner

Hey all at booktalk! I recently made a video covering William Faulkner in a video essay format. Half of the video is more or less a biography of Faulkner, concerned with his upbringing and how he came to be a revered author in the 20th century. The second half covers the speech Faulkner gave when he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1949. He was an inspirational man who had clear opinions on the differences between good and bad writing, and I have always applauded him for giving young writers such a concise answer, something to strive for in their own work.

Link to the video:

I hope at least someone here enjoys the video :blush:
If you do not like the video, let me know why; it could be vital information for me to hear. Thanks everyone: have a great day!

:btw: if you do like the video, what would you think of me possibly covering Tender Is the Night (a book in my top 5 favorites of all time) or F. Scott Fitzgerald himself? Let me know.
