April 17, 1928

I have never been so confused while reading a book.

Part 1, of the “Sound and the Fury” by William Faulkner focuses on the point of view of Benjy. Benjy who is the mentally challenged and youngest member of the family, is considered a source of grief and shame for the Compson’s.

What is unique about Benjy’s point of view are his unbiased opinions of the other characters, and his stream of thought.

But walking away from this chapter, I need a large glass of hot tea, and a therapist, because the Compson family has problems!
