Faulkner did not number the sections since he was interested in creating a continuous impression;  therefore, the following attempt to divide the novel into sections and groups is made so as to facilitate  critical commentary. Faulkner's technique throughout the novel is to present short individual sections in which some  character gives his thoughts about the events that are taking place. Each section is an "interior  monologue," an attempt to reproduce what the character might be actually thinking. Therefore, if the  character is in the presence of other people, often his thoughts will be interrupted by the  conversation and often the character will record that conversation before continuing with his line of  thinking. In its largest view, the novel will concern itself with the death of Addie Bundren and the long arduous  journey that the family undertakes in order to bury her in Jefferson, a town forty miles away. In these

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
