       Appendix: SHERWOOD ANDERSON: April 26, 1925 
520    In 1925 William Faulkner began his professional writing 
       career in earnest while living in the French Quarter of 
       New Orleans. He had published a volume of poetry ( The 
       Marble Faun ), had written a few book reviews, and had 
       contributed sketches to the University of Mississippi 
       student newspaper. He had served a stint in the Royal 
       Canadian Air Corps and while working in a New Haven 
       bookstore had become acquainted with the wife of the 
       writer Sherwood Anderson. In his first six months in New 
       Orleans, where the Andersons were living, Faulkner made 
       his initial foray into serious fiction writing. Here in 
       one volume are the pieces he wrote while in the French 
       Quarter. These were published locally in the Times-
       Picayune and in the Double Dealer , a "little magazine" 
       based in New Orleans. New Orleans Sketches broadcasts 
       seeds that would take root in later works. In their themes
       and motifs these sketches and stories foreshadow the 
       intense personal vision and style that would characterize 
       Faulkner's mature fiction. As his sketches take on 
       parallels with Christian liturgy and as they portray such 
       characters as an idiot boy similar to Benjy Compson, they 
       reveal evidence of his early literary sophistication. In 
       praise of New Orleans Sketches Alfred Kazin wrote in the 
       New York Times Book Review that "the interesting thing for
       us now, who can see in this book the outline of the writer
       Faulkner was to become, is that before he had published 
       his first novel he had already determined certain main 
       themes in his work.". In his trail-blazing introduction 
       Carvel Collins, often called "Faulkner's best-informed 
       critic," illuminates the period when the sketches were 
       written as the time that Faulkner was making the 
       transition from poet to novelist. "For the reader of 
       Faulkner," Paul Engle wrote in the Chicago Tribune , "the 
       book is indispensable. Its brilliant introduction  
520 8  . . is full both of helpful information . . . and of fine 
       insights." "We gain something more than a glimpse of the 
       mind of a young genius asserting his power against a 
       partially indifferent environment," states the Book 
       Exchange (London). "The long introduction . . . must rank 
       as a major literary contribution to our knowledge of an 
       outstanding writer: perhaps the greatest of our times.". 
       Carvel Collins (1912-1990), one of the foremost 
       authorities on Faulkner's life and works, served on the 
       faculties of Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute 
       of Technology, Swarthmore College, and the University of 
       Notre Dame, where he was the first to teach a course 
       devoted to Faulkner's writing
