Noel Polk, most prominently, the editor of “corrected texts” of William Faulkner’s work, and editor of Faulkner’s work for the Library of America, has died at 69. He taught for decades at University of Southern Mississippi, and most recently at Mississippi State. In addition to editing Faulkner (and Robert Penn Warren’s All The Kings Men), he was a published poet, memoirist, and literary scholar. More details here. A major loss to Mississippi’s literary community.
