The story of Thomas Sutpen, an enigmatic stranger who came to Jefferson in the early 1830s to wrest his mansion out of the muddy bottoms of the north Mississippi wilderness. He was a man, Faulkner said, "who wanted sons and the sons destroyed him."

I didn't exactly enjoy this book, though there were parts that were enjoyable. I read it because it is supposedly Faulkner's best and the (https://thegreatestbooks.org/lists/33) best Southern novel of all time. I got to the point where reading it made me question what a novel is, what makes a novel good or even great. I don't think this novel was great. It was interesting, and few of the more fragmentary flights of fancy (look for the parentheses to find these) were awe-inspiring in both a good and bad way. I laughed out loud more than once, due to just how inscrutable that language was. There are a limited number of places where I would describe the writing as beautiful.

Quotes for consideration:
"the old mindless sentient undreaming meat that doesn’t even know any difference between despair and victory"..."nothing matters except that there is the old mindless meat that dont even care if it was defeat or victory, that wont even die, that will be out in the woods and fields, grubbing up roots and weeds"

I'm glad I read it. I recommend it to anyone seriously pursuing Southern literature.

Note: the "n word" appears in this book.

I first encountered the ghosts of the South in Toni Morrison's work. I was glad to encounter the genius of her predecessor and it was illuminating to feel/hear the different perspective that a white man has on the legacy of the South and miscegenation. This book was hard, but worth the work. ( )

Trata-se da saga familiar de várias camadas das famílias Sutpen e Coldfield no sul dos Estados Unidos nas décadas que antecederam a Guerra Civil Americana. Thomas Sutpen confunde a cidade de Jefferson, Mississippi, e particularmente a família Coldfield, quando ele vem do nada e adquire uma enorme extensão de terra, chamada Sutpen Hundred, e constrói uma casa enorme nos limites de um pântano com a ajuda de seu bando de homens negros selvagens e um arquiteto francês, que ele trata mais ou menos como cativo.

Durante anos após a construção da casa, Thomas Sutpen entretém um grupo de amigos com festas de caça e bebida e lutas, até o dia em que ele decide que quer adquirir respeitabilidade na forma de esposa e filhos. Ele afasta seus amigos do sexo masculino e propõe uma garota chamada Ellen Coldfield.

À improvável união entre Thomas Sutpen e Ellen Coldfield nascem Henry e Judith. (Thomas Sutpen também tem uma filha meio negra chamada Clytemnestra, ou "Clytie", que ele teve com uma escrava.) Ellen Coldfield tem uma irmã, Srta. Rosa Coldfield, que é 27 anos mais nova do que ela (mais nova que seus próprios filhos). A primeira parte da história está sendo contada pela idosa Rosa Coldfield a Quentin Compson, cujo avô era o melhor amigo de Thomas Sutpen. O papel que Rosa Coldfield desempenha no romance é mais de um observador dos acontecimentos.

Quando Henry Sutpen é adulto, ele vai para a faculdade em Oxford, Mississippi. Lá ele conhece e se torna um bom amigo de Charles Bon. Charles é mais velho, mais sábio e sofisticado do que Henry. Quando Henry escreve sobre Charles Bon, sua mãe imediatamente vê Charles como um provável marido de Judith. Charles visita a casa de Sutpen com Henry em mais de uma ocasião. Seu interesse por Judith parece superficial. Ele vai propor a ela ou não? Aprendemos mais tarde um segredo sombrio sobre Charles Bon e que sua associação com a família Sutpen faz parte de um esquema elaborado de vingança.

A Guerra Civil Americana intromete-se na vida dos personagens. Os três principais personagens masculinos, Thomas Sutpen, Henry Sutpen e Charles Bon se encontram em batalha. A guerra, é claro, não acontece da maneira que muitos sulistas esperavam. Os homens que sobrevivem, derrotados não apenas na guerra, mas também em espírito, voltam para casa famintos e em frangalhos para descobrir que tudo o que amavam ou se importava foi varrido.

Este é um romance sombrio, sobre vingança, miscigenação, segredos de família e arrogância. A leitura é complexa e fragmentada, mas vale muito a pena. ( )

Several years ago, nearly forty now, an English professor challenged me to read all of Faulkner's novels in the order he wrote them. I had read some Faulkner in school, and the best effort I could muster brought me somewhere close to the state line of appreciation of his work. The anxiety of Faulkner's paragraphs that are pages long, and the limited vocabulary I share with many of my East Tennessee kin, were always the breakdowns that would end any journey I started with old Bill. About five years ago, I decided to try again.

The magic of Kindle patched the tires of my vocabulary as we went. Patience, a tad of maturity (a very small tad), and the humility to pull over and rest if needed helped me roll through each of Faulkner's passages as they came.

But to be honest, I was beginning to wonder what all the fuss was about. Then I got to "Absalom, Absalom!" WOW! I finally get the term southern gothic, but any honest review would admit that for me, understanding Faulkner is still a great distance's read away. At least now I've got a full tank for the rest of the journey. Thank you, Mr. Cushman! ( )

A poll of well over a hundred writers and critics, taken a few years back by Oxford American magazine, named William Faulkner’s “Absalom, Absalom!” the “greatest Southern novel ever written,” by a decisive margin

From a little after two oclock until almost sundown of the long still hot weary dead September afternoon they sat in what Miss Coldfield still called the office because her father had called it that—a dim hot airless room with the blinds all closed and fastened for forty-three summers because when she was a girl someone had believed that light and moving air carried heat and that dark was always cooler, and which (as the sun shone fuller and fuller on that side of the house) became latticed with yellow slashes full of dust motes which Quentin thought of as being flecks of the dead old dried paint itself blown inward from the scaling blinds as wind might have blown them.
