The Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson family, featuring some of the most memorable characters in literature: beautiful, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant. Their lives fragmented and harrowed by history and legacy, the character's voices and actions mesh to create what is arguably one of the greatest novels of the 20th century. This edition follows the text of the novel as corrected in 1984. It includes an editor's note by Noel Polk on the corrections following the text.
