This was a fine book to read, I could not put it down and had to finish in one night. Read a few more of his works since then and Faulkner stays as one of my favorite authors. Going in blind made it all the more memorable. Starting with Benjy's part and I immediately found myself invested in the flashbacks and dreamlike existence only to see how much of a burden and frustration his existence really was. I still cannot figure whether he was enveloped in ignorant bliss or he used those memories of Caddy as an escape for how shit life had gotten since then for the family.
Finding out Quentin killed himself at the end of his section was a great shock as well

im furious at this book. the benjy section was magical and the quentin section was good too but with some things i dont know what faulkner was thinking.

the main problem is the ugly flowery descriptions and metaphors that show up most prominently in the forth one but theyre there in the quentin section and just a little bit on the benjy section too in the form of unneccesary adjectives. the fourth section completely deflates the subtlety and the weight of the rest of the book with that flowery shit.

another problem comes with the ambiguity. its what makes the book good but it also means he has to interject exposition and its not always very natural. sometimes it feels very in your face. especially when things are repeated three or more times. the appendix that spells things out i found to be godawful. i dont know why its there at all.

and lastly the prose of the jason section was fine but jason as a character is so cartoonishly bad that hes not interesting anymore.

im sorry if these are common complaints about the book. are his other books like the last section? also how similar is the quentin section to joyce's stream of consciousness?

At what point does this shit start to make sense?
Is my copy of the book just bugged or there's just senseless babbling going all the time?

Do people still talk about literature around here? I haven't been back here since 2015 and was looking to talk about the Sound and the fury which I recently read.

I was struck by how good a character Jason Compson was. An incredible portrait of a uniquely american type of bastard. His intense cruelty, his self-obsession, his ability to make an externalized excuse for any of his own shortcomings. Really incredible stuff.

Quentin is a dumb faggot who wants to fuck his sister, and fuck everyone who thinks he's cool and not Jason.
