As I Lay Dying

As I Lay Dying


by William Faulkner

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

  • Tull goes home and tells Cora about what happened at the bridge.
  • Cora commends Darl for being the only one who went into the river after the coffin. She also thinks the accident was the hand of God.
  • Tull gets frustrated with his wife and rehashes the rest of the scene internally. The log finally got free from the wagon and floated downstream. Jewel tried to lead his horse back to the wagon and ended up loose in the water.
  • Meanwhile, Cash doesn’t know how to swim, gets a hold of the rope attached to Jewel’s horse and is dragged out of the water, basically unconscious.
