"I wrote this book and learned to read....I had gone through all that I had ever read, from Henry James through Henty to newspaper murders, without making any distinction or digesting any of it, as a moth or a goat might. After 'The Sound and the Fury' and without heeding to open another book and in a series of delayed repercussions like summer thunder, I discovered the Flauberts and Dostoievskys and Conrads whose books I had read ten years ago. With 'The Sound and the Fury' I learned to read and quit reading, since I have read nothing since....This is the only one of the seven novels which I wrote without any accompanying feeling of drive or effort, or any following feeling of exhaustion or relief or distaste. When I began it I had no plan at all. I wasn't even writing a book."Faulkner, William is the author of 'The Sound and the Fury (Norton Critical Editions)', published 1993 under ISBN 9780393964813 and ISBN 0393964817.[read more]
