As I Lay Dying

As I Lay Dying


by William Faulkner

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

  • The Bundrens have stopped to rest at a farm owned by a man named Gillespie.
  • Darl asks Jewel who his father was. Jewel curses him and doesn’t answer.
  • Cash starts sweating. He’s in pain because, in the heat, his leg is swelling against the concrete. They pour water on his leg, he thanks them, and everyone tries to sleep.
