    He listened to a lot of old people tell him stories about the Old South which was practically dead and buried, paid close attention to colloquial speech, he read the classics and tried to outdo them.

      Almost every author that publishes in the Southern lit or grit lit genre has read him. He is like core reading in that regard.

    First he lets his wife write all works for him. Second he lets her do same for a breakout writer from New-York who hates his job. Thirdly she dies in hands of Charlie the satan of Hollywood. And then he never writes anything good again. What a tragic life this man had.

        This was a partial plot summary of Barton Fink (1991) one of the many films Coens made about fate of an artist in Hollywood.

        That's just somebody's Barton Fink headcanon

        Your head was cannoned inside ass, if you havent gotten my summary from the film, directly from it.

      They may have gotten that idea from Maupassant's Bel-Ami. The business of the wife doing the husband's writing is a key plot engine in that story.

        Yeah, letting muse do your artistic job for you and being your guidance is a metaphor as old as everything they steal from bible

        It's the mystery of artistic talent, which in Faulkner's case bordered on genius.

        >Thirdly she dies in hands of Charlie the satan of Hollywood.

        What was that all about? Were that getting at something with that character? Or was he just an inexplicable chaotic force?

        It was a brief summary for anon to get hooked and figure out for himself that Charlie was (idk how to make a spoiler and that anon is still in thread)

          Neither do I. You've convinced me, however, to rewatch it.

    It was his experience with tragedy (the death of the Old South) and his identification with it despite his conscience trying to pull him away from it.

    It's weird because he has so much trash. Only a few of his novels are good and one is somehow one of the greatest novels of the English language. What went right?

    He had a midwesterner teach him to write.
