From Rowan Oak, William Faulkner's home, the guests talked about his life and his writings, focusing on the Yoknapatawpha County novels. A C-SPAN crew toured grounds and a few rooms inside the home. Professor Kartiganer is the editor of Faulkner and Ideology: Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha and has done extensive research on the life and works of William Faulkner. Professor Davis is the author of Faulkner's "Negro": Art and the Southern Context and has also done research on the connection between Faulker's writings and society in the 1930s. The guests examined Southern culture during the late 1920s and early 1930s through the writings of Faulkner. In his writings Faulkner invented a host of characters typical of the historical growth and subsequent decadence of the South. Each story and each novel contributes to the construction of the imaginary Yoknapatawpha County and its inhabitants. Their theme is the decay of the old South.
