The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner's fourth novel, was his first attempt at a wholly self-conscious style. Faulkner's willingness to experiment affords his readers no stable perspective from which to comprehend the decline of the Compson family. The informative title is filled with new critical essays on Faulkner's masterpiece...

We read The Sound and the Fury and we hear a tale signifying a great deal, because Faulkner constitutes for us a literary cosmos of continual reverberations. Like Dilsey, we too are persuaded that we have seen the first and the last, the beginning and the ending of a story that transcends the four Compson children, and the squalors of their family romance. -Harold Bloom

Since [its publication] this brilliant, difficult work has continued to attract more critical attention than any other single Faulkner work, and its popularity seems unlikely to fade. -Emily Auerbach
