William Faulkner often said that this book was the closest to his heart of all his novels because it had cost him the most grief and anguish to write. In this magnificient novel, he created his "heart's darling," the beautiful and tragic Caddy Compson, whose story Faulkner told through separate monologues by her three brothers - the idiot Benjy, the neurotic suicide Quentin, and the monstrous Jason. His fourth novel, it is the first of his indisputable masterpieces, displaying in its passion and its power the full range of his genius. By turns lyrical and dramatic, hilarious and heartbreaking, it is the novel which, perhaps more than any other, has established Faulkner as a central figure in twentieth-century literature.
