“The Sound And The Fury” by William Faulkner
“The Sound and The Fury” shines as one of he jewels of the 20th century literature. The story follows the slow and tragic dissolution of the respected Southern aristocratic family – the Compsons. Over the course of 30 years they face a financial collapse, lose their religion and the respect of the town’s people. Faulkner uses this setting to introduce some of his most memorable characters. The beautiful and wayward Quentin, her cynical young brother Jason, the mentally retarded “Benjy” and Disley – the black servant of the family. They all tell their own stories until eventually everything meshes into arguably the masterpiece of Faulkner’s work.
