Hope you like your next read better. Through it all, we maintained a good sense of humor sometimes even giddy. Our discussion is in the thread to this review. The skill it took to create this piece, composed of so many seperate perspectives, confined to such a narrow and specific moments of time, makes me think of interlocking puzzles carved from a single piece of wood or stone. And I can believe they will raise their children the same way.
In each part the narrative perspective changes. Two out of three is bad. The beginning is definitely the most confusing part since The first part is really confusing, even with cliffnotes. Faulkner and Religion: Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha, 1989. Tanto Quentin, como su Benji y el tercer hermano, Jason construyen y destruyen las relaciones deterioradas entre ellos, su madre y su otra hermana, Candance o Caddy, quien tiene una preponderancia clave a lo largo de toda la novela, así también como la hija de Caddy, casualmente también llamada Quentin. Lots of flashbacks, shifts in perspective, and often pages and pages with few if any paragraph breaks. Just how much significance should we accord an idea Faulkner brought up over drinks in a New York speakeasy and then mentioned a few times afterward before dropping it? The Compsons disown Caddy from the family, but take in her newborn daughter, Miss Quentin.
This is a weird weird book. It has to be the most painful and pointless book I have read since The Sun Also Rises. So his section very frequently skips from the present to flashbacks of different times in his life, giving us glimpses of the people in the Compson home, and their troubles. باید سر فرصت و با حوصله رفت سراغش به محض این که کتاب رو دست بگیرین می فهمین که دارین کار بزرگی انجام میدین با همه ی دشواری هاش ، با همه ی سخت فهمی هاش شاید در طول خوندن، دوستش نداشته باشین شاید حتی ازش متنفر بشین ولی بدون شک در انتها به عشقش دچار خواهید شد نکته!!! The Most Splendid Failure: Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury. بخش کونتین نیز پژواکی از عنوان رمان است.
If you have the patience to finish it, and the tools to decipher it, you become one of the select few, the literati elite. Each chapter told from a different person's point of view capturing their dynamic personalities. I had absolutely no clue what the heck was going on, the sentences were disjunctive, the thoughts scrambled, the characters were dropping in then disappearing, it seemed to change time frames without any recognizable order so I had no sense of time and, ultimately, I had forgotten why it was, exactly, that I had bought the damned thing in the first place! This section also gives us the clearest image of domestic life in the Compson household, which for Jason and the servants means the care of the Caroline and of Benjy. The conflict between Miss Quentin and Jason comes to a head, as Quentin finally gets some of hers back and Jason ineffectually chases her. She's a tragic figure and a tragically awful figure.
When I read reviews on books like this I can only come to two conclusions; 1 I am an idiot or 2 It is a case of the Emperor's New Clothes. A few years ago, I was cruising the audio books in the library, and came upon this one. Compson tells him that virginity is invented by men and should not be taken seriously. In what ways has society changed in its attitudes and treatments of a boy like Benjy? He would rather die than be without his sister, who - despite some pretty twisted elements of their relationship - he genuinely loves and who genuinely loves him back. Todos ellos están corruptos en cierta manera. While Jason chases after Miss Quentin to no avail, Dilsey takes Benjy and the rest of her family to Easter services at the local church. Although the vocabulary is generally basic, the frequent switches in time and setting, as well as the occasional lack of regard for sentence structure grammar have proven it to be a difficult read—even for many fans of Faulkner.
He knows what he wants money, power, fame and he is ready to do anything - lie, beg and steal - to get to the top of the social ladder. Maybe they like him as little as we do. En el caso de Joyce, basó toda su obra entera en la ciudad de Dublín. This feels like a very conscious decision, and while I see its merit, I still believe that it would have been worth it to give Caddy her own section, especially in her later years when she becomes a bit of a mystery to the family. And this feeling never really dissipates.
. And in the course of this, they destroy themselves. Bilinçakışıyla yazmış Faulkner bu romanı. Because of the staggering complexity of this section, it is often the one most extensively studied by scholars of the novel. They will forever see the ugly truth of fifty years ago laid out in their archived images from television footage and newspaper clippings, and, on their way through to south Florida, they will see a few instances of a glorified rebel flag on the pickup trucks of racist rednecks, an ever-diminishing population here, and wrongly assume that all Southerners are racist, talk slow and think backwards.
Jason is all about control, and he justifies his thefts because back in 1910 Caddy's husband was going to give him a job in banking, which fell through when the husband divorced Caddy because she was pregnant with another man's child. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. David Minter's annotations are designed to assist the reader with obscure words and allusions. First off, I couldn't finish this book. However, it´s hard not to care about the characters after you´ve worked so hard to understand exactly what the hell is going on with them.
