Synopsis

The Sound and the Fury - William Faulkner by Prof. Harold Bloom

The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner's fourth novel, was his first attempt at a wholly self-conscious style. Faulkner's willingness to experiment affords his readers no stable perspective from which to comprehend the decline of the Compson family. This title includes critical essays on Faulkner's work.

Reviews

Each attractive volume presents recent essays by noted critics who examine in detail aspects of a single literary work ... Highly recommended for academic collections.
