響きと怒り

Novel by ウィリアム・フォークナー

Blurb

『響きと怒り』は、アメリカ合衆国の小説家ウィリアム・フォークナーの小説である。1929年に発表された。ジェイムズ・ジョイスやヴァージニア・ウルフのような20世紀ヨーロッパの小説家が開拓した「意識の流れ」と呼ばれる手法など多くの叙述スタイルを採用した。フォークナーにとっては第4作目の小説であるが、発売当時は評判を呼ばなかった。しかし、1931年、フォークナーの第6作目『サンクチュアリ』が出版されると、『響きと怒り』も売れるようになり、フォークナーに批評家の注目を集めるようになった。
1998年、モダンライブラリーは20世紀の英語小説100傑の第6位に『響きと怒り』を挙げた。

You nailed it author, I was sucked right after reading the the first few paragraphs. You know what, I suggest you publish this in NovelStar. A lot of readers will love your work.

I went into this book blind, having read everything of Cormac McCarthy's and moving onto Faulkner, first with As I Lay Dying and then this. I got about 5 pages in then went to Wikipedia, confirmed I wasn't insane with a quick skim through the overview so as not to spoil the story, and jumped back in. I won't pretend I found it an easy read; sentences needed re-reading, some pieces of the puzzle didn't click together until later, and often I found myself drawn into the text at an ever increasing pace until I hit a punctuation mark and realised I had no comprehension of what I had just read. I hope to read it again one day, armed now with a knowledge of the timeline; upon completing it I felt I'd just completed a puzzle as handfuls of the pieces were hurled at me, now I've seen the completed picture I can go back and enjoy each piece as it comes. Absorbing though confusing, well worth a read but perhaps arm yourself first with a summary.
