Did You Know
Tiffany Noel
"Through the fence, between the curling flower spaces, I could see them hitting”

These are the opening lines of the hit classic, “The Sound and the Fury” by infamous American author William Faulkner. This novel, published in 1929, was Faulkner's fourth and did not become successful immediately. However, in 1931, when Faulkner's sixth novel “Sanctuary” was published (a sensationalist story which Faulkner later claimed was written only for money) brought commercial success to “The Sound and the Fury”. This is also when Faulkner began to receive critical attention. “The Sound and the Fury” is set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County and centers on the Compson family, former Southern aristocrats who are struggling to deal with the dissolution of their family and its reputation.
