Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246)Warning This lecture contains graphic content andor adult language that some viewers may find disturbingProfessor Wai Chee Dimock discusses Jasons section of The Sound and the Fury with reference to Raymond Williamss notion of the "knowable community." Jasonss narrative is characterized by the loss of that knowable community, by his pointed rage against his family and servants, as well as his diffuse anger against larger, unknowable entities like the "New York Jews," Wall Street, Western Union, and the United States government. Professor Dimock reads this anger as a harbinger of the modern condition a threatening world in which strangers and impersonality reign supreme. In her reading, she shows Faulkner expressing qualified sympathy for Jason, whose loss of a utopian model of community is represented with sadness and pathos in the final sections of the novel. 0000 - Chapter 1.
