The lead for this article says very little about its subject, William Faulkner, yet goes on at some length about other writers who aren't Faulkner — most of whom, quite honestly, are not the equal of Faulkner. Isn't the lead supposed to encapsulate the article to follow and compel me to read on in the article? This lead justs encourages me to link away to some other writers, probably not as good. Anyone else bothered about this? — HarringtonSmith (talk) 17:39, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
154 watchers of this page, and no one thinks the lead to the article is, ummm, thin? Twain, Warren, O'Connor, Capote, Welty, Wolfe, Lee and Williams are all notable writers, but what do their names do to describe Faulkner's writing? There needs to be a paragraph summarizing Faulkner's themes, style and influence. I'd write one myself, but I'm not a good enough Faulkner scholar even to make a start. I know there are watchers who can do justice to this. C'mon, give it a shot. — HarringtonSmith (talk) 03:52, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
It seems to me that the organization of the biography could use some improvement and more detail. Perhaps different sections for different phases of Faulkner's life as opposed to how it's currently organized? Maybe "Life in California" could be kept if citations can be found for it, but I think it might be better to get rid of the "Personal Life" section and work that information into a more chronologically organized biography. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Crecio (talk • contribs) 19:21, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
I've noticed that many writer pages have a list of writers that they've influenced in addition to the list of their influences. Is there any reason the Faulkner page doesn't have a list of writers he has influenced? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:29, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
I would not say that Rowan Oak is maintained much as it was in Faulkner's life: it's now heavily air conditioned, and therefore completely different from when he lived there.Paulhummerman (talk) 23:21, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Organization of section 1. Biography and subsection 1.1 Personal life
I have deleted the subsection 1.2 Death as it was redundant; information, in greater detail, already existed in subsection 1.1 Personal life. The split structure of section 1 Biography and subsection 1.1 Personal life, given the overall state of the article, has no justification. The flow is better with the two parts melded. - Neonorange (talk) 19:52, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
