William Faulkner

Commenting on The Sound and the Fury Faulkner said, 'It's the book I feel tenderest towards. I couldn't leave it alone, and I never could tell it right...'

Now acclaimed as one of the outstanding novels of this century, Faulkner's masterpiece centres on the degenerate Compson family. It opens with Benjy's tale - a tale 'told by an idiot' - in which time does not exist and parents, brothers, sister and and servants loom out of a fog and disappear again. Only in the later narratives told by Benjy's brothers does the family come into disturbing focus, and the novel begins to reveal itself as less a story than a moving image: an image of intense family relationships disintegrating in a vortex of lovelessness and extreme, sterile love.
