Reviews of Absalom, Absalom! (1936)
Review by nui6882 (2003-07-19)
Arguably one of William Faulkner's greatest achievements, Absalom, Absalom is a brilliant entry in his Yoknawpatawpha saga. The tale of the mysterious Thomas Sutpen and his arrival in the town and subsequent integration into the society is a fascinating portrait of late 19th century Southern life. Faulkner's stream-of-consiousness is in full flower, and far more comprehensible than it often is. I highly reccomend this masterpiece of Modern writing.
