The book is the author of Faulkner, who is not a great master in the literary world, who will be able to withstand the nature of the book, read such a book "full of malicious readers", Faulkner's omnipresent stream of consciousness, handover and handover of conscious or carefully arranged scenes. It is destined that this book is not read, read two times, even read three times to read the flavor. It is such a stream of consciousness, no punctuation all over the whole piece, and the sentence sometimes has no grammar to say, but after I read it, I really admire Faulkner. This admiration is a respect for a real writer. Such people are just like the Pilgrims who crawl around, looking for temples that may not exist at all. And Faulkner is such a kind of person, and this temple may be the palace of literature.
The story of the novel takes place in the Kang Pusheng family of Jefferson town in the southern United States, depicting the history of the decline of the Kang Pusheng family. This is a prominent family who has been prominent for a while. There were many fields in the family, and the black slaves were in groups. Now there is only a dilapidated house, and the black servant is left with the old lady dilsi and her grandson. Mr. Kang Pusheng, the chief of the family, died in 1912. He was a lawyer when he was alive, but he never met with his business. He was drunk all day long, and he made a lot of cynical remarks and spread the pessimism to his elder son Quentin. Mrs. Kang Pusheng was selfish and cold and groaning. She always felt that she was losing her temper, but in fact she was dragging herself down and torturing her whole family. She does not forget the identity of the south, so that she is only a "identity" incarnation, and she does not have the warmth of her mother and wife. No one in her family can get love and warmth from her. Daughter Katie can be said to be the center of the whole book. The decline of the family and the decadent and indifferent atmosphere in the family changed her from a "Southern lady" to a frivolous and dissipated woman. The fall of Katie gave his family a devastating effect on her three brothers.
In the initial stream of consciousness without continuity, I am afraid that every reader will feel how difficult it is to read rough pages. The character consciousness is not restricted by time and space at all, the big segment jumps from one consciousness to a consciousness, only in some places with different fonts to give you hints, or, with some smell, something to give a hint, these random, unordered stream of consciousness, very strange, in reading, although it makes sense. It feels quite boring, but when you read it patiently, you will find a strange phenomenon: the problem in the process of reading, at the end, turns into a vivid picture that makes people feel so impressed. Faulkner completely abandoned the traditional realistic writing techniques, that is, the transition from the outside world to the inner world when the character was carved, and he did it in the way of consciousness, leading the reader to take part in the author's creative intention in the process of reading, and finally, he made a wonderful pen. Open up the fog and let us come to the sunshine. In the large space of consciousness, all kinds of field shadows are constantly interlaced with the inner consciousness of the characters, and the surface looks completely disorderly, but after the end of the reading, these scenes are like the superposition color of the oil painting layer after layer, showing a rich and bright level.
The most impressive one was the daughter of the family, Katie. Although the whole book does not separate chapters from her perspective, she is closely related to the actions of every character. The elder son, Quentin, desperately embraced the so-called old tradition in the south, because Katie's romantic nature, love and hate, grief and indignation drowned suicide. Mrs. komp was a selfish and cold "patient". She must be concerned only with herself. She never forgot the identity of the southern lady, dragged the whole family, and accelerated the decline of the Compson family. Katie lived in the repressed darkness, free from the bondage of the "boudoir", but walked over the head, was dissolute, was pregnant with the boys, and married another man. But she could not escape the discarded fate. Poor is the private girl, also called Quentin. Ridiculous parents did not ask her advice, gave birth to her, pain and sorrow was doomed to accompany her life. After the disillusionment, as the article says, "born in pain, grew up in the pain of disease, and died in decay."
