  • "Arguably one of the greatest novels written in modern times, William Faulkner's masterpiece The Sound and the Fury is the story of the Compsons, a traditional upper-class family in Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, who are on the brink of personal and financial ruin. Narrated in stream of consciousness, The Sound and the Fury introduces such memorable characters as the autistic Benjy, rebellious Caddy, obsessed Quentin, and wealth-seeking Jason, as well as their black servant Dilsey. In the telling of their own personal stories, each character reveals the events behind the decline of their family and the loss of their money, faith, respect, and each other. Faulkner's fourth novel, and sixth on the Modern Library's list of 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century, The Sound and the Fury did not become successful until the publication of The Sancturary, Faulkner's sixth novel, in 1931. It then received great critical success and contributed to William Faulkner's 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. The Sound and the Fury takes its name from a passage from William Shakespeare's Macbeth.
