    It occurs to me on reading Light in August for the third time in twenty years, that if America were ever to try to come to terms with its legacy of slavery unlikely now at this late date but if it ever were to empanel some kind of Truth and Reconciliation Commission, like the one South Africa had after apartheid, and which seems especially needed now that we are mourning the shooting deaths by cops of so many unarmed b

    Memory believes before knowing remembers Believes longer than recollects, longer than knowing even wonders Are there many such novels that delve deep into our souls and that makes us suffer and weep I believe there are many, but not many that imprison us in its tidings and with their beauty in such a way that escape is an impossibility Yes, we cannot run away any less than its wretched characters could Indeed, William Faul

    I m not going to attempt to write an erudite review of this book, because then I would simply be revealing the glaring holes in my Faulkner education A scholarly write up of this brilliant man s work is best left to students of college literature classes or perhaps a well taught AP English course or another revieweradept than I Confession I was hesitant to read this, but I was determined to make another attempt after a faile

    Words That stew in silent torment, weep and curse, howl in pain and outrage Words that spill from his pen and bleed on to these white sheets to taint our neat black and white categorizations Universes stretch across the extremities of his fictional Jefferson, that swallow lives whole and spit back all the folly men and women are capable of And images emerge in an unearthly chiaroscuro of mortal agony and transient joy Colours

    William Faulker, Light in August Sitting beside the road, watching the wagon mount the hill toward her, Lena thinks, I have come from Alabama, a fur piece Here Faulker presents Lena who has a passive role in Light in August as this phrase sitting, watching, thinking points out she is not actually doing an action here other than a purely mental one There is a lonely, languid feeling imparted by watching the wagon mount the hill t

    I can t figure out if reading Faulkner particularly THIS one at the very time of the massive George Floyd protests is hideously inappropriate or exactly the right thing to do All I knew when I started was that I wanted to give Faulkner another shot Many years ago I laboured heroically through The Sound and the Fury and I seem to remember I thought it was brilliant, but maybe that was just because I survived it Thenrecently I read As

    You re an American author, dead almost half a century, and there s this thing called television and a host ess talking about books with half the population of a country you once inhabited, you re on the list and why Race I really hate the term Great American Novel, how we capitalize it in the middle of sentences GAN, anyone and talk about examples of it with reverence It s a questing beast for authors that strive for it and an oddity

    A dark and compelling slice of Southern Gothic with a prose which is easily recognisable as Faulkneresque that showcases his ability to write about the awful deep south at a time of serious racial prejudice, misogyny and the preaching of religion through the eyes of both men of the cloth and those who are deluded and fanatical Featuring some of Faulkner s most memorable characters including the dauntless Lena Grove searching for the fat
