"A man is the sum of his misfortunes." --William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury William Faulkner's provocative and enigmatic 1929 novel, The Sound and the Fury, is widely acknowledged as one of the most important English-language novels of the twentieth century. This revised and expanded Norton Critical Edition builds on the strengths of its predecessors while focusing new attention on both the novel's contemporary reception and its rich cultural and historical contexts. The text for the Third Edition is again that of the corrected text scrupulously prepared by Noel Polk, whose textual note precedes the novel. David Minter's annotations, designed to assist readers with obscure words and allusions, have been retained."Contemporary Reception," new to the Third Edition, considers the broad range of reactions to Faulkner's extraordinary novel on publication. Michael Gorra's headnote sets the stage for assessments by Evelyn Scott, Henry Nash Smith, Clifton P. Fadiman, Dudley Fitts, Richard Hughes, and Edward Crickmay. New materials by Faulkner ("The Writer and His Work") include letters to Malcolm Cowley about The Portable Faulkner and Faulkner's Nobel Prize for Literature address. "Cultural and Historical Contexts" begins with Michael Gorra's insightful headnote, which is followed by seven seminal considerations--five of them new to the Third Edition--of southern history, literature, and memory. Together, these works--by C. Vann Woodward, Richard H. King, Richard Gray, William Alexander Percy, Lillian Smith, William James, and Henri Bergson--provide readers with important contexts for understanding the novel."Criticism" represents eighty-five years of scholarly engagement with The Sound and the Fury. New to the Third Edition are essays by Eric Sundquist, Noel Polk, Doreen Fowler, Richard Godden, Stacy Burton, and Maria Truchan-Tataryn.A Chronology of Faulkner's life and work is newly included along with an updated Selected Bibliography.… (mer)

An original, strange, excellent book. My favorite sentence in the novel: “’Cant anybody catch that fish,’ the first said. They leaned on the rail, looking down into the water, the three poles like three slanting threads of yellow fire in the sun” (120). ( )

Can't read this stuff. Sorry Mr. Faulkner. ( )

Beautiful scenery at times, but other than that, seemed to me like it missed its mark. ( )

Once I got past the unusual narrative style, I got caught up in the story of the decline of the Southern Compson family. However, I'm glad I read the book as part of a English Lit class because it is a very difficult read if you don't have some guidance. In addition to class discussions, The Sound and the Fury reading guide created by the University of the Mississippi was very helpful. The guide provides useful hints to help you decipher the more complicated sections of the novel. ( )

Wow. I don't even know what to say. People far more erudite than I have written extensively about The Sound and the Fury, and I am going to leave it to them. I will posit a question though. Was Faulkner, at the end of the day, a hopeful man? The ending of this book was pure genius, tawdry and hateful war with repressed and hateful all throughout the narrative with only Dilsey standing up for goodness. Does that goodness win? No question that the hatefulness loses. I swear I haven't a clue what happened. I will be thinking about this book for a long time to come. ( )
