The Sound and the Fury

The Sound and the Fury

by William Faulkner

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(7) Snow Line

The going can be a little rough here, thanks in large part to Willy Faulkner's groundbreaking narrative. Multiple perspectives? Check. Stream-of-consciousness monologues? Double check. At times, reading The Sound and the Fury can feel a bit like you're plunged into a thick forest, trying to find your way forward. Luckily for you, though, Shmoop is here to point out the landmarks.
