He demands to know where she got the money from. Dewey Dell denies that it is hers, saying it belongs to Cora and that she got it by selling Cora’s cakes in town. Anse guilt trips Dewey Dell. He says that he does so much for her and doesn’t expect anything in return, and now she won’t even lend him ten dollars. Dewey Dell insists over and over that it is not hers and she doesn’t have the right to give it away. Anse takes the money from Dewey Dell. Chapter 59 Anse is gone a long time while supposedly returning the shovels. He insisted that he had to be the one to bring them back. While waiting outside, Cash remembers the graphophone they heard earlier. He thinks music is just about the greatest thing in the world. He thinks he could have bought one with five dollars, except that Anse took the money for the replacement mules. After he comes back, Anse goes into the barber’s to get a shave. Cash notices that he’s all prettied up when he comes back. The next morning, Anse asks Cash if he has any more money. Cash says no, and then says that if they need anything else, they should go to Peabody. Anse says no, they don’t need anything else. Cash waits in the wagon with Jewel, Vardaman, and Dewey Dell, who are eating bananas. Finally, they see Anse approaching with the woman he borrowed the spades from. Jewel notices that he finally got the teeth he’s been talking about. The woman in question is "duck-shaped," dressed-up, and carrying a little graphophone. Cash momentarily wishes that Darl were around so that he could listen to the music, too, but concludes that "this world is not his world; this life his life." Pa introduces all of his children to the new Mrs. Bundren.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
