This generation of Americans found in Faulkner a writer who could be held up to the world as a paragon of American values.
It is no coincidence that between and , under the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations, Faulkner traveled to eleven different countries in Europe, Asia, and South America, giving interviews and press conferences, often under the direct sponsorship of the Cultural Services branch of the U. State Department. They are more likely to praise Faulkner not for celebrating them but for challenging American values.

A Vast and Enduring Monument: William Faulkner’s Literary Reputation | Mississippi History Now
In his fiction he tested its tenets in the most startling and insightful ways. How did his times affect and accept what he wrote? Faulkner and His Contemporaries explores the relationship between the Nobel laureate, ensconced in his ""postage stamp of native soil,"" and the world of letters within which he created his masterpieces. Several essays examine the environment in which Faulkner worked.
Deborah Clarke concentrates on the rise of the automobile industry. Kenneth Holditch shows how the city of New Orleans acted as a major force in Faulkner's fiction, and Grace Elizabeth Hale examines how the civil rights era of Faulkner's later career compelled him to deal with his ideas about race and rebellion in new ways.
