Abstract

In 1926, William Faulkner wrote, illustrated, and bound Mayday as a gift for his girlfriend Helen Baird. Parodying medieval romance, Faulkner follows Sir Galwyn of Arthgyl as he seeks the beautiful girl who appeared to him in a vision during his chapel vigil. With Hunger and Pain as his constant companions, Sir Galwyn’s quest takes him to an enchanted forest. He slays a small dragon, encounters Time and Tristram, and briefly loves Yseult, Elys, and Aelia. This image shows the first page of text from Faulkner’s carefully handcrafted book.
