From the back cover
Absalom, Absalom! is the story of Thomas Sutpen and his ruthless, single-minded pursuit of his grand design--to forge a dynasty in Jefferson, Mississippi, in 1830--which is ultimately destroyed (along with Sutpen himself) by his own sons. A century later, the figure of Sutpen continues to haunt young Quentin Compson, who is obsessed with the legacy of Sutpen, and of the Old South.

I am sending this book in a trade with tabby-cat-owner--for another Faulkner novel, which thrills me!

This book was a difficult book to read. If it wasn't for the Chronology and the Genealogy in the back of the I might not have known what the ramblings of various characters were all about. This book contains the corrected text which was done in 1986. Many of the corrections are very simple such as the addition of periods, commas and spelling corrections. The names of characters have also been added in parenthesis after pronouns to help the reader know who is being refered to. This author used his own version of 'stream of consciousness' writing. His technique employs conversations (not thoughts) where the speaker rambles on and on. This technique makes the reader realize that the opinion of the speaker may not be actually what happened. Faulkner also uses a spiraling technique where an event is related over and over (which can be annoying). The part of the book that I enjoyed the most was the mood created when describing the Civil War scenes.
