QuotationBox of Faulkner books came yesterday from Random House. I began The Sound and the Fury, which I had never read. What a book! One of the greatest ever written by anybody. There is the real Faulkner. The Benjy section is fascinating - and beautiful, incest and all. A marvelous piece of work, innocent and strange and immediate and with so many implications for the world of "moral" people.
