"One of the most important works of American literature this century" (Observer)
"Faulkner has inexhaustible invention, powerful imagination, and he writes like an angel" (Arnold Bennett)
"For range of effect, philosophical weight, originality of style, variety of characterisation, humour and tragic intensity [Faulkner's works] are without equal in our time and country" (Robert Penn Warren)
"Its unlike anything else in literature... The experience of reading it seemed closer to the experience of life than anything provided by a neatly contrived story line... After the war I read all I could of William Faulkner, and he continued to present some unique and, it seemed to me, valid way of looking at life" (Nicholas Mosley Guardian)
"Not only was the book a kind of beginning for me, but that it endured still, it moved me deeply and remains "the damndest book I ever read"" (Niall Williams Sunday Times)

This work by Faulkner is just as impenetrable in this edition as in any other though; it is a great read just
for the difficulty in understanding alone. Everytime that you read it one more piece of the jigsaw seems to fall into place.
The book is split up into four parts which get progessively easier to read. They are by four different narrators and four different points of view of what is basically the disintegration of a once wealthy family in the deep south of America circa 1920's.
It's well worth reading this book for Faulkner's prose alone.

First Faulkner that I have read. His style of prose with little punctuation and his particular style of a type of stream of consciousness takes a bit of getting used to. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Heather
