As I Lay Dying

  

by William Faulkner

As I Lay Dying Section Ten, narrated by Darl Summary

  • Darl and Jewel are in the wagon and on the road, hot in pursuit of that three dollars. Darl notes that Jewel has gotten a haircut in town this week.
  • Darl keeps asking Jewel whether or not he knows that Addie Bundren is going to die.
  • Darl recounts a conversation he had with Dewey Dell, regarding the unspoken pregnancy and whether she wants their mom to die so she can go to town (presumably to get an abortion).
  • He is disgusted when he thinks of how Peabody is so obese that he will need help getting up the hill to their house.
