As I Lay Dying

  

by William Faulkner

As I Lay Dying Section Forty-Two, narrated by Darl Summary

  • Jewel rides to Armstid’s farm and returns with Armstid’s team of mules.
  • Cash, still half-unconscious, is placed on top of Addie’s coffin. (He was kicked in the stomach by Jewel’s horse after he was pulled out of the water.) He tries to make sure his tools are nearby (everyone has a security blanket).
  • The Bundrens travel to Armstid’s place for food and shelter for the night.
  • Jewel hangs back to take care of his horse while the others go in for dinner.
