As I Lay Dying

As I Lay Dying


by William Faulkner

As I Lay Dying Section Twenty-Three, narrated by Darl Summary

  • The men move the coffin to the wagon. Well, they’re trying to. Jewel shouts at Darl, Cash, and Anse to hurry up, which isn’t exactly helping.
  • Jewel, furious, lifts his end suddenly and with too much force. They continue to struggle to maintain balance as Jewel runs down the mountain and hurls the coffin into the wagon.
  • Jewel curses at Darl, again.
