This classic novel set in Mississippi in the first quarter of the of the 20th century traces the decline of the once aristocratic Compson family. The tale is narrated by the three Compson brothers: an idiot, an academic and an embezzler and the family servant, Dilsey Gibson.
This is a story for our times about frustrated identity and the power struggle between men and women. William Faulkner’s richly textured writing weaves together luscious fragments of imagery and compelling characters, inspiring this subtle and beautiful theatrical portrait of a decaying family.
