As I Lay Dying (1930); Sanctuary (1931); Light in August (1932); Absalom, Absalom (1936); The Wild Palms (1939) were written by William Faulkner. Although William Faulkner was a magnificent writer, at first glance he wouldn’t be considered an ideal role model. Faulkner was a High School dropout, but was given the opportunity to attend the University of Mississippi, but quit after three semesters. But then after looking at his life, William Faulkner is what an Ideal role model should be. He accomplished many personal goals in his life even though there were a lot of hardships to overcome. William Faulkner would always be known for his distinctive writing style as well as the characters that he created for his novels and short stories. William Falkner was born on September 25, 1897 in New Albany, Mississippi. He was the oldest son of Murry Cuthbert Falkner and Maud Butler, who had three other boys. William Falkner brothers are; Murry Charles "Jack" Falkner; John Faulkner; Dean Swift Falkner. Falkner lived almost all of his life in Mississippi more specifically in Oxford. As a young child, he always showed an interest in writing. He first began drawing and writing poetry. Unfortunately, while in the 6 th grade he started losing interest in his studies. Eventually, he dropped out of High School and got a job as a bookkeeper.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
