Sample text

1834 Clytie, the daughter of Thomas Sutpen and a slave, is born. 1835 The mansion at Sutpen’s Hundred is almost finished, so Thomas Sutpen allows the French architect to leave and plans to court Ellen Coldfield. 1838 Thomas Sutpen and Ellen Coldfield are married in a ceremony that the townspeople refuse to attend. 1839 Henry Sutpen is born. 1841 Judith Sutpen is born. 1845 Rosa Coldfield is born to middle-aged parents; her mother dies in childbirth. 1850 Wash Jones, a poor white squatter, moves to Jefferson with his daughter Melicent, and camps out on Thomas Sutpen’s land.

He published 30 books during his lifetime, winning a National Book Award, a Legion of Honor award, the Howells Medal for distinguished fiction, the Gold Medal for Fiction, two Pulitzer Prizes, and, finally, a Nobel prize. But Faulkner did not lead a completely happy life. As the eldest of four sons, he felt responsible for his entire family. His improvident father drank heavily, as Faulkner did when he became an adult. Moreover, Faulkner’s family had owned slaves, and Faulkner felt the weight of guilt of a society whose economic standard was created by the exploitation of others.

It is sometimes difficult to tell where one character’s thoughts end and another’s begin. Moreover, Faulkner writes as if the reader already knew everything. Faulkner’s difficult style forces the reader to identify with the town of Jefferson and even the Sutpen clan. Since we have to trust our instincts and partially reconstruct the story ourselves, as if we were family, which makes the story more intimate. Absalom, Absalom! is constructed like a family saga, made not of written narrative fiction, but crafted from spoken gossip.
