Example text

Is a multi-layered story being told by Quentin Compson, a young student sitting in his room at Harvard, to Shreve McCannon, his Canadian roommate. ” In response, Quentin tells him about Thomas Sutpen, a character based on Faulkner’s great-grandfather, who built a plantation, “Sutpen’s Hundred,” in the deep South. The story is told as a series of memories, or gossip collected from different narrators, some of whom are reliable and some of whom are not. Although the story is fairly clear-cut, the layering of the narration makes it seem more of a myth, or mystery, than a history.

Miss Rosa is furious and hates him forever after. Since the main part of the narration of Absalom, Absalom! comes from Miss Rosa’s knowledge, Thomas Sutpen is most often portrayed as a demon, or devil. Failing with Miss Rosa, Thomas Sutpen then seduces Wash Jones’s granddaughter. Milly Jones becomes pregnant, and when Sutpen goes to the Jones’s shack to see if it is a son and thus the heir to his empire, Wash Jones kills him with a scythe. Thomas Sutpen’s grand design was also his downfall. This is the end of the “respectable” Sutpen empire, but Charles Bon is still alive—and he has had a child by a mistress in New Orleans.

Ellen Sutpen was the happiest of all and she bloomed while planning this wedding. ” It was as if all of the humiliation that she experienced in her own wedding could be mended by giving a good wedding to her daughter; she lived vicariously through her daughter’s happiness. The happiness, however, was not to last, and is foreshadowed by the image at the end of the chapter of a man on a mule desperately calling at Miss Rosa’s gate. Analysis Mr. Compson is still telling the story to Quentin in Chapter Three.
