Journal Entry 1 by wingherchellewing from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, October 15, 2021
It is getting to that time in my like that I would like to read some of the Classics, sadly, I must confess that I have never read any of William Faulkner’s works, but I have seen the movie “The Reivers” with Steve McQueen when I was younger. I hope that this book claws its way to the top of my TBR Mountain Range soon.

The Sound and the Fury is set in Jefferson, Mississippi, in the first third of the 20th century. The novel centers on the Compson family, former Southern aristocrats who are struggling to deal with the dissolution of their family and its reputation. Over the course of the 30 years or so related in the novel, the family falls into financial ruin, loses its religious faith and the respect of the town of Jefferson, and many of them die tragically.
