    While the novel deals with racism in the deep south of America in the 1920's and 30's it also deals with a much deeper theme. Obsession is a powerful emotion capable of destroying anyone's personality. Without presenting plot spoilers here I will say that that the emotion is described by Faulkner in such a way that I didn't want to stop reading even when the novel ended. This book is one of his best.
