The Sound and the Fury
“I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire. . . . I give
it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget
it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath
trying to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won he said. They
are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly
and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.”
-fromThe Sound and the Fury
The Sound and the Furyis the tragedy of the Compson family, featuring some of the most memorable characters in literature: beautiful, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant. Their lives fragmented and harrowed by history and legacy, the character’s voices and actions mesh to create what is arguably Faulkner’s masterpiece and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century.
