Absalom, Absalom!

Absalom, Absalom!

by William Faulkner

Dreams, Hopes, and Plans Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

[…] but thinking So at last I shall see him, whom it seems I was bred never to expect to see, whom I had even learned to live without, thinking maybe how he would walk into the house and see the man who made him and then he would know. (8.10)

This is kind of sweet, actually. Charles Bon dreams of meeting his father, and in his fantasy, he will finally be acknowledged as his son. Just like everything in Absalom, Absalom!, that doesn't quite go as planned.
