William Faulkner's Sound And As I Lay Dying
The sound and the fury it does two things, it plays upon the minds of the characters with the stream of consciousness of benjy, Quentin, and Jason. “My sister had no. if I could say mother, mother” (TSATF) and it tells a specific story, with certain events leading up to the final story. In the novel as I lay dying, this sort of stream of consciousness is about the only stylistic continuity between all fifteen narrators of As I Lay Dying. The different style and tone used by each character makes you know see the stream of consciousness with each of the characters. The way the story jumps back and forth throughout, the characters help you get to know who they people are really talking.
