Example text

They all lived in the wild while carving out the plantation from the raw land, and the entire town was curious about this man and his enterprise. Where did he come from and why was he doing what he was doing? Sutpen never explained anything about himself to the other townspeople—where he came from or where he got his money—because of that they always held him in some distrust. They looked on in amazement as his mansion and estate rose up from the wilds. From the first, Thomas Sutpen is characterized as a hard, unscrupulous man.

During the Civil War years, Ellen Sutpen dies. After the war, and Henry’s murder of Charles, Miss Rosa moves to Sutpen’s Hundred. Then Thomas Sutpen returns from the war. Still trying to beget an empire, Thomas Sutpen proposes to Miss Rosa Coldfield. At first, Miss Rosa is happy, but then Sutpen coldly suggests that she try to bear him a son before marriage. Miss Rosa is furious and hates him forever after. Since the main part of the narration of Absalom, Absalom! comes from Miss Rosa’s knowledge, Thomas Sutpen is most often portrayed as a demon, or devil.

The listener, or collector of the tale, like Quentin, or the reader, can never know the full truth—only the social web of truths that make up what we call life. History is formed by a collection of data, of documents referring to a certain period in time. Faulkner is creating history here, using the most ephemeral of data—the spoken word—and his history, like many histories, has a moral. Faulkner uses the voices of the ghosts of his past to create a cultural myth, or history, that shows the inhumanity of the economic system of slavery to be unacceptable.
