i have no clue how to paraphrase!!!
paraphrase the quotation:
the poets voice need not merel be the record of man it can be one of the props the pillars to help him endure and pervail.
Follow the directions here.
Correct spelling and punctuation will help you understand these words of William Faulkner.
"The poet's voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail."
It may help you to read the entire speech to get a good understanding of this final sentence.
We'll be glad to check your paraphrase.
