Requiem for a nun. (Book, ) []

There's a play and there is a narrative history of the county the town and the state and maybe I need some help here haven't read any commentary to explain to me where the twain shall meet. Still, I liked it, couldn't stop reading either, absorbed by both. The narrative filling in a lot of the gaps of the history of the county left out or merely alluded to in other works; the prose dense and often just too much but I couldn't stop reading it.. The play: There is Temple getting of that train and not turning around from a drunk Gowan Stevens and getting back on it, and eight years later the circumstances of that decision create the mess that is the subject of the play.

It's like she can't help it. There's a determinism here, something Faulkner deals with a lot in his writing.

But there's also the hint more than that of redemption and faith in the mouth of Nancy. And Nancy, the fallen woman who could somehow redeem herself out of all disadvantage while Temple - in all advantage - didn't just fall but dove and is can't seem to stop herself any more than she can resit gravity. Likely not the most accessible nor a good starting point. It's a sequel to another book, Sanctuary, so I wouldn't recommend beginning here, but rather with The Unvanguished. But after reading several of his other novels, including all of his major novels, put me in a good place to enjoy Nun..

Not quite 4 stars but better than 3. I was disappointed. Has a very rubbery feel. I bought many other vintage international Faulkner books at my local bookstore and they didn't feel like this. One person found this helpful. Most stunning, it seemed a most unlikely, and certainly an inevitably doomed marriage between two of the least likeable characters in American literature: Temple Drake and Gowan Stephens.

The format is hybrid: half narrative, half play.

The play is composed of three acts. And each act is preceded by a long stream-of-consciousness narrative devoted to the founding history of the area. It is that which I found most fascinating. In many of his other novels, there are stories of the past, but they are far more fragmentary than in this novel.

In this one the reader learns that "Jefferson," the county seat of Yoknapatawpha was originally called Habersham, after the Doctor who, along with his eight-year-old motherless son, his "bodyguard" Alexander Holston and the Huguenot founder of "Frenchman's Bend" pushed through the Cumberland Gap in the 's to reach what was a trading post with the Chickasaw Indians who were soon to be dispossessed of their land.

Yet in the 's Habersham's son would marry a grand-daughter of the Chickasaw chief, and go with them to the new "Indian territory" that was Oklahoma. And the familiar names from other novels make their appearances in the histories: Sartoris, Stevens, Compson, McCaslin, Sutpen and Coldfield. The author deftly describes how rapidly this trading post was developed into a town, with a courthouse for the documents, and, of course, a jail, that plays a prominent part in the play, since, early on, the reader learns that Temple and Gowan Stephens maid, Nancy Mannigoe, has been sentenced to death by hanging for murdering the Stephen's infant daughter, despite Gavin's efforts as her defense attorney.

The mastodonic tracks? That is in the narrative before the second act, and is, even much more ancient history, which relates to the capital of Mississippi, Jackson.

Since I had recently been in the very down-and-out town of Port Gibson, I noted that in the Mississippi state house had voted to move the capital there, but then reneged on the result.
