BOOKS BY WILLIAM FAULKNER:

The Sound and the Fury
1929
The story of the dissolution of the once aristocratic Compson family told through the eyes of three of its members. In different ways they prove to be inadequate to their own family history, unable to deal with either the responsibility of the past or the imperatives of the present.
As I Lay Dying
1930
The death and burial of Addie Bundren is told by members of her family, as they cart the coffin to Jefferson, Mississippi, to bury her among her people.
Absalom, Absalom!
1936
Narrated by Quentin Compson, the suicide in The Sound and the Fury, this is the tale of Thomas Sutpen, a poor White who dreams of founding a dynasty. His refusal to accept his wife' s Negro blood initiates a bloody train of events to create a vision of doom of the American South.
Sartoris

Go Down Moses, and Other Stories

Seven interrelated stories chronicle the lives of the McCaslin family's white and Black descendents.
