Faulkner in Paris, 1925
Photo by W.C. Odiorne
After he wrote his first novel, Soldiers' Pay, Faulkner
traveled to Europe in the manner of many other young writers of
the day. While in France, he adopted the look and air of a Bohemian
poet by growing a beard and absorbing the art and culture of Paris'
Left Bank. One of his favorite places was in the Luxembourg Gardens,
where he was photographed by William C. Odiorne. He wrote a long
description of the Gardens, which he would later revise and incorporate
into his novel Sanctuary.
