The Sound and the Fury

The Sound and the Fury is a novel written by William Faulkner. It was his fourth novel, and was published in 1929. The novel is written in a stream of consciousness style, and is split into four sections: the first from the viewpoint of Benjy Compson, a retarded man; the second from the point of view Quentin Compson, a depressed college student; the third from the point of view of their sardonic brother Jason Compson; and the fourth section from a third person limited omniscient point of view, centering on Dilsey and expounding on religious faith.

The title of the novel is taken from act 5, scene 5 of William Shakespeare's Macbeth.
