What does a Grecian mother earn?

Writer William Faulkner died on this date in 1962.  Faulkner won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949 and delivered a famous acceptance speech.

He also wrote the famous line:

"If a writer has to rob his own mother he will not hesistate; the 'Ode on a Grecian Urn' is worth any number of old ladies."
