    2. Bram on said:

      Whew. This is a devastating book. Probably one of the most depressing stories I've read. Incest, castration, suicide, racism, misogyny—this one has it all. Even at the beginning, when it is possible to make out only pieces of the events, a nauseating sense of dread permeates Benji’s narrative per Faulkner’s pungent writing style. And this feeling never really dissipates. Jumping into The Sound and the Fury with no prior introduction is like driving through an impenetrable fog or into a bli [...]

    3. Aubrey on said:

      The first time I attempted this book, I made my way through a mere three pages before deciding it would be a waste. To date, it is the only book that I had the good sense to leave until later, as my usual response is to barrel through the pages come hell or high water. Perhaps it was a good thing that I had just finished slogging my way through a monstrous tome that left my brain incapable of facing down the beginning of Benjy's prose. I don't remember the title of whatever book left me in that [...]

      Reading some books is like clambering through a barbed wire fence at the bottom of a swamp with your oxygen tank about to run out and this is one of those. When you’re done with it you look round expecting someone to notice and rush up with the medal and citation you completely deserve for services to literature. You finished it! Yeahhh! But no one does and if you try to explain to your family “Hey wow I finished The Sound and the Fury, man was that difficult, wow, my brain is like permanent [...]

    5. Violet wells on said:

      This is one of those books that makes a gigantic claim. As if it’s either genius or it’s Emperor’s New Clothes. It won’t settle for anything in-between. On every page I felt Faulkner was straining at the bit to prove to me he’s a genius. The title has always put me off reading this. The Sound and the Fury. It’s melodramatic, humourless, a bit pompous. It sounds like one of those American war films of the fifties starring John Wayne. But what is it with southern writers that they only [...]

    6. Tadiana ✩Night Owl☽ on said:

      William Faulkner's unforgettable 1929 novel of a "rotting family in the rotting house." It's a somber tale of the tragically dysfunctional Compson family, but told with insight and remarkable talent, if not readily accessible. Mostly set in the year 1928, and in the US south in the days of segregation and prejudice (the N-word makes a frequent appearance), The Sound and the Fury has four sections plus an appendix: three of the sections are narrated by the three Compson brothers, Benjy, Quentin a [...]

    7. Ryan on said:

      The first thing that comes to mind in regard to ¨The Sound and the Fury¨ is Eliot´s ¨a heap of broken images.¨ Deciphering TSTF is like reassembling a shattered mirror; difficult, and likely to end in pain.On the other hand, it´s hard to deny that it´s a great book, if only from the standpoint of workmanship. The skill it took to create this piece, composed of so many seperate perspectives, confined to such a narrow and specific moments of time, makes me think of interlocking puzzles carv [...]

    10. Fabian on said:

      This Monster of a Book is equally profound & puzzling. Somewhere between naked consciousness and brutal incomprehension, the novel is nothing if not cerebral. The events occurring one Easter weekend at the end of the roaring 20's are sliced off at emotional markjers and then mixed in with events from the sad, sad past. Beginning the labyrinth with Benjy's POV is like the set of rules proposed by the mad Faulkner. He more than asks, he DEMANDS one put everything away to partake in the Souther [...]

      Mañana, y mañana, y mañana se arrastra con paso mezquino día tras día hasta la sílaba final del tiempo escrito, y todos nuestros ayeres han alumbrado a los necios hacia el polvo de la muerte. ¡Apágate, breve llama! La vida es una sombra que camina, un pobre actor que en escena se arrebata y contonea y nunca más se le oye. Es un cuento que cuenta un idiota, lleno de ruido y de furia, que no significa nada.

      Somehow I earned a degree in English Lit w/o ever reading Faulkner. This was the first book I’ve read of his and I can’t say enough about it. This book haunts you. Here’s the thing. You know that feeling you get when you hear a song or see a face that sparks some vague memory? The memory may have been a dream, or may have been something you saw in a movie. It might well have been something that never actually happened to you, but was some fantasy you had years ago. Maybe there’s even a p [...]

    13. Jeanette"Astute Crabbist" on said:

      Okay, here I go with another one of my dissenting viewpoints. This was my first attempt at reading Faulkner, and I assure you it will be my last. I don't know how this pile of crap ever got published, let alone became a classic! It's absolutely unreadable! Pure upchuck in print. (As always, just my opinion, so don't be offended if you like the book.)

    14. Perry on said:

      The Twilight-Colored Smell of HoneysuckleOne raised or with extended family in the rural South may get chills as I do reveling in Faulkner's enduring phrase, "the twilight-colored smell of honeysuckle." This might stir hazy, almost-haunting memories from childhood of crepuscular visits on the veranda with relatives long since passed, of lilting voices and smiling faces somewhat obscured by time, among them a great-grandparent with a foreign accent who migrated from Europe and would break into th [...]

    15. Nandakishore Varma on said:

      Yes. Sitting in the office thinking of this book I was reminded of the drowsy afternoon duing my early twenties in my bedroom at my ancestral home at Thrissur, the house with its cavernous rooms and musty attic with its smell of toddy-cat urine and the East Wind blowing in through the windows and I read this novel and could not make head or tail out of it as I am struggling now with an engineering proposal: still I plodded on and on and on dragged in by the strange beauty of William Faulkener's [...]

    16. Jim on said:

      First off, I couldn't finish this book. It has to be the most painful and pointless book I have read since The Sun Also Rises. (I know I am treading on precious ground here.) I have read reviews and SparkNotes on the book, so I understand the premise and format. But what is the point of endless, vague, flowery dialogue without background? How do I learn about the fall of an important Southern family if it is just the fragmented sentences of various people who haven't even been introduced?When I [...]

William Faulkner Shakespeare(view spoiler)[(1)Much of this is sheer speculation on my part.(2) The imitative though poorly so stream of consciousness in most of what follows is not the way most of the novel is written.

    19. Parthiban Sekar on said:

      I guess that there will be no shame in admitting that this is so-far the most challenging book I read, as the narration kept changing not just from person to person but also from time to time. So, this "Stream of consciousness" style (introduced to me by Aakansha) can make you lose your head, if you don't follow every word of at least first two chapters. There will be times when you just want to see any hint of punctuation (especially last few pages in second chapter) or you might think that pri [...]

    20. J. Yandell on said:

      This book really made me work for it -- I had to read it three times to figure out what the heck it was all about. I read it first in college. I was absolutely lost. Yeah, I understand the whole stream-of-consciousness stuff, I do -- but I read this going: "What the f@k?" I was so freaked about taking the test on this book, that I went and got the Cliff notes on it. I read the Cliff notes and literally turned back to the cover to make sure I'd gotten the right notes. I mean, I read them, and ask [...]

    21. Algernon on said:

      The clock tick-tocked, solemn and profound. It might have been the dry pulse of the decaying house itself, after a while it whirred and cleared its throat and struck six times. Like the opening of Beethoven’s Fifth, the sound of the clock announces a tale of doom and despair: the fall of the house of Compson, once proud community leaders in Jefferson, Mississippi, now destitute and morally corrupt. Faulkner is mapping this decadence by getting inside the head of three members of the Compson cl [...]

    23. İntellecta on said:

      "Schall und Wahn"is not easy reading. The plot is shattered by flashbacks, cuts, and inner monologues. In each part the narrative perspective changes. In spite of this experimental and innovative narrative, the author succeeds again and again in capturing the reader with the tragic force of history and language and to keep the tension alive. Faulkner portrays his protagonists realistically, without spoiling their character weaknesses.Resume: A dense language, a great atmosphere A unique novel [...]

    24. Teresa Proença on said:

      Às vezes, penso que talvez a vida que me resta não seja suficiente para ler todos os livros que tenho, e terei ainda, por aqui. E fico triste. Hoje, não me importo. Depois de O Som e a Fúria não creio que haja algum outro livro que me dê pena deixar por ler.Nas primeiras páginas senti-me como se estivesse perante um cavalo soberbo e indomável, que me atirava ao solo sempre que o tentava montar; mas ele ficava lá, olhando-me, prendendo-me como num feitiço; e tentei de novo e de novo e d [...]

    25. Michael on said:

      I didn’t enjoy this as much as I expected. I marveled at the portrayals of thought in language and felt some of the futile anguish of people stuck in their family history. I gleaned something from the story as some kind of epitome of the South struggling to surmount racism, sexism, and classism at the cusp of modernity between the two world wars. I’d experienced long ago Faulkner’s storytelling knack with short stories (“Go Down Moses”) and recently was wrenched and blown away by the r [...]

      ImagesI see them. They are beautiful, but IThe imagesThere goes someone. What is she doing?Those images, what do they mean?There she goes againAnd then, as if you weren't confused enough, in the second section of The Sound and the Fury, the narration is taken over by Quentin, a quick-witted, but nearly no more reliable a narrator than before. He is the somewhat confused but chivalrous Harvard-educated brother, who clings to Southern ideals. He is so passionate about his fight to uphold his belov [...]

      "Ses ve Öfke" ne yazık ki uzun zamandır okumak için beklettiğim ya da bekletildiğim eserlerin başında geliyordu. 'Bekletilmek' kelimesini kullanmamın temelinde, eserin keyfi okumaya uygun bir yapıya sahip olmaması yatıyor. Bu kadar önemli bir romanı, elbette daha önceleri elime almış ve okumaya çalışmıştım.
