Editorial Reviews

"Faulkner… belongs to the full-dressed post-Flaubert group of Conrad, Joyce, and Proust." --Edmund Wilson
"For all his concern with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man. Thus we must return to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for the greatness of our classics." --Ralph Ellison

For all the range of effect, philosophical weight, originality of style, variety of characterization, humor, and tragic intensity [Faulkner's works] are without equal in our time and country.

How can I criticize a classicist like William Faulkner so I will just add that this novel is very different than anything else you read if you are not familiar with his style of writing and seemingly run on sentences that try your patience and sometimes bore you till you want to put the book down and that is just what i did even though I feel badly about it in retrospect and probably always will until I pick it up again and give it another good ole college try like I did when i was 20 years old in college and having a great time in spite of studying my head off to complete finished grammatically correct English papers that did not contain run on sentences like William Faulkner's.
