High School Reading: The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner

We'll meet in the cafe section of Central Market.  They have coffee, beer, you can order a meal or browse through the entire store for other food and bevs.

One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, The Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson family, featuring some of the most memorable characters in American literature: beautiful, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant.

    Sad I missed the meetup. Been out sick from work yesterday and today, but enjoyed the book.

    I didn't see John (Jon?)'s RSVP in the list so if you're reading, you're the ghost attendee. If you're going by some other name or I just am not seeing you in the group for some reason, and you're sad about not being in the attendee list, send me a direct message or put up a comment or something, dude.

    Had fun talking about the book with the handful of badass readers who showed up!

    I'm not too far into the book but was having trouble placing who all the characters are. Wikipedia's character descriptions was useful if anyone else has that same problem.

      These two sites saved me a bunch last quarter when I took my "20th century American Fiction" course. If you're trying to read from cover to cover without aids like this it might be a little difficult. All that matters is the point of view of each given section...

    Which version are people reading? I found a "corrected text" online.

    • David F.

      My copy says it's based on the corrected text from 1984, so hopefully other copies are pretty samey.
