As I Lay Dying

As I Lay Dying

by William Faulkner

As I Lay Dying Section Thirty-Three, narrated by Tull Summary

  • Vernon walks across the bridge with Dewey Dell, Anse, and Vardaman.
  • Cash, Jewel, and Darl then prepare the way for the wagon.
  • Vernon holds tightly to Vardaman’s hand as they walk. He feels a confidence and comfort in doing so; it’s as though he has a special affinity for the young boy.
  • Vernon says once again that they ought to wait overnight for the water level to go down, but Anse insists that he needs to honor his wife’s wish to be buried in Jefferson.
