The text of this Norton Critical Edition is that of the corrected edition scrupulously prepared by Noel Polk, whose textual note precedes the text. David Minter’s annotations are designed to assist the reader with obscure words and allusions."Backgrounds" begins with the appendix Faulkner wrote in 1945 and sometimes referred to as another telling of The Sound and the Fury and includes a selection of Faulkner’s letters, excerpts from two Faulkner interviews, a memoir by Faulknerís friend Ben Wasson, and both versions of Faulkner's 1933 introduction to the novel. "Cultural and Historical Contexts" presents four different perspectives on the place of the American South in history. Taken together, these works—by C. Vann Woodward, Richard H. King, Carolyn Porter, and Robert Penn Warren—provide the reader with valuable contexts for understanding the novel. "Criticism" includes seventeen essays on The Sound and the Fury that collectively trace changes in the way we have viewed this novel over the last four decades. The critics are Jean-Paul Sartre, Irving Howe, Ralph Ellison, Olga W. Vickery, Cleanth Brooks, Michael Millgate, John T. Irwin, Myra Jehlen, Donald M. Kartiganer, David Minter, Warwick Wadlington, John T. Matthews, Thadious M. Davis, Wesley Morris and Barbara Alverson Morris, Minrose C. Gwin, André Bleikasten, and Philip M. Weinstein. A revised Selected Bibliography is also included.

4.5 Broken Home
I am just realizing now that the Faulkner set I own (Oprah's Book Club Edition) is not chronologically arranged, so though I first read As I Lay Dying it evidently came out a year after The Sound and the Fury, which I just finished. Though I tend toward the more straightforward organization, I can...

5.0 The Sound and the Fury
This is the most challenging book I’ve read this year. I don’t know how far I would have gotten without Google. This book is amazing, but it’ll sure make you work to understand its amazingness. The Sound and the Fury is divided in to four chapters, each focusing on a different member of the Compso...

4.5 Vilijem Fokner - Buka i bes
U kući u kojoj nema sreće žive sećanja u kalupu od ljudi. Bendži svet vidi očima trogodišnjaka. Kroz njegov doživljaj okoline Fokner daje najtačniju predstavu emocionalne mreže u kući. Bendži oca i sestru poznaje po mirisu, na drveće i kišu, dok ostali članovi porodice iz njegovih usta izvlače on...

3.0 The Sound and the Fury
I wish I had enjoyed this book more. The characters are compelling and the imagery is wonderful. The prose, however interesting it may be, makes it difficult to follow. I found myself struggling to stay in tune with the characters thoughts, so much so that it detracted from my enjoyment. I will read...
