Absalom, Absalom is the story of Thomas Sutpen and his ruthless, single-minded pursuit of his grand design to forge a dynasty in Jefferson, Mississippi, in 1830 which is ultimately destroyed (along with Sutpen himself) by his own sons. A century later, the figure of Sutpen continues to haunt young Quentin Compson, who is obsessed with the legacy of Sutpen, and of the Old South.

William Faulkner

William Cuthbert Faulkner was a Nobel Prize-winning American novelist and short story writer. One of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, his reputation is based mostly on his novels, novellas, and short stories. He was also a published poet and an occasional screenwriter. The majority of his works are based in his native state of Mississippi. Though his work was published as early as 1919, and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner was relatively unknown until receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, "for his powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American novel." Faulkner has often been cited as one of the most important writers in the history of American literature. Faulkner was influenced by the european modernism, and employed the Stream of consciousness in several of his novels.
