    full of sound and fury,,,signifying, well, something

    First of all, it must be said that for anyone interested in English literature this is a must read. After having read this, it becomes apparent that so much of the literature that followed this book - in the 18th, 19th, and even the 20th centuries - is modelled on this book. Could it be that the same writer influenced Mark Twain and Jane Austen? Secondly, this book must be read for its unexptected humour and freshness - even though it was written almost three hundred years ago, its expositions on sex and violence are seen daily on Jerry Springer. True, the sentences are lengthy - and sometimes the scholarsip burdensome - but, for the most part this is a story of scandal and surprise. At the same time, though, I admit that I wished the story was a couple of hundred pages shorter: there were times, especially towards the end, when I simply stopped trying to make sense of all the loose ends and focused on the main plot. Fielding, as demonstrated by this book, is a master writer, but the folks over at Jerry Spinger could have taught him a thing or two about editing.
