Lec 7 - Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, Part II

"Lec 7 - Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, Part II" Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246) Professor Wai Chee Dimock continues her discussion of The Sound and the Fury by juxtaposing Quentin's stream-of-consciousness to his brother Benjy's narrative subjectivity. Professor Dimock argues that Faulkner uses stylistic parallels between the two sections to communicate "kinship" and "variation" between the two narrators. In her readings, she focuses on their relationship with the black characters in The Sound and the Fury, as well as their reactions to Caddy's loss of sexual innocence. She concludes with a discussion of Quentin's suicide as a reaction to the "second-hand tragedy" of Caddy's pregnancy.
