    It is an age old plot namely that of the decay and ultimate downfall of an American post civil war family, the Compsons of Jefferson, Mississippi. The first chapter is written from the viewpoint of severely mentally challenged man and as one can imagine the monologue of this individual is a hodgepodge of perceptions and vocal utterances. Faulkner masterfully writes of this in a stream of consciousness fashion, similar to the last chapter of Joyce's Ulysses. To read the book takes persistence but in the end it is well rewarded.
