The Sound and the Fury was Faulkner’s fourth novel, considered by many to be his masterpiece, and a turning point in his work. Here he firmly plants himself, however unintentionally, in the Southern Renaissance and Modernist movements of the 20th century, proving himself to be an uncompromising and distinct voice. Faulkner referred to heroine Caddy Compson as “the daughter of his mind,” and regarded this work with the deepest of tenderness. This is the quintessential novel by Faulkner, and the crown jewel of any collection. (Item Id: 108661)
