By William Faulkner
“I provide the mausoleum of all wish and hope. . . . I supply it to you no longer that you could be take into account time, yet that you just may possibly disregard it at times for a second and never spend your entire breath attempting to triumph over it. simply because no conflict is ever received he stated. they aren't even fought. the sphere in simple terms finds to guy his personal folly and depression, and victory is an phantasm of philosophers and fools.” —from The Sound and the Fury
The Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson kinfolk, that includes the most memorable characters in literature: appealing, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant. Their lives fragmented and harrowed by way of historical past and legacy, the character’s voices and activities mesh to create what's arguably Faulkner’s masterpiece and one of the best novels of the 20th century.
