Invitation: The Sound and the Fury - William Faulkner

Hello, Readers!

Join us for the next book selection: The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner.
This novel tells a story of the Compson family, former aristocrats stuck in the outdated beliefs of the civil war South. The story is told from the perspective of four different characters and uses several different narrative styles.

The title of the novel is taken from Macbeth:

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


When:

Sunday, September 9, 2018
5:00 PM
to 7:00 PM

Where:

Café La Bohème (next to 24th St. BART)
[masked]th Street, San Francisco

 

“The Sound and the Fury is 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.”
