According to many scholars today, technology is slowly killing the written word, but it’s also keeping interest in it alive. The University of Virginia has created a new archive, Faulkner at Virginia, which compiles a series of lectures Faulkner gave on campus 1957-58. Those of us not quite ready to yield our grip on the intentional fallacy (in short, the notion that a work’s ‘meaning’ inheres in its author’s intentions) can pore over these audio files, seeking insight into the most ambivalent passages of one of the 20th century’s greatest American authors. The audio archive provides contextual information, as well as “search” and “browse” functions.
