The boys wait in front of a house while Pa goes in to get a spade. Cash refers to it as "Mrs. Bundren’s house," which will make sense by the end of the novel. From inside the house he can hear music playing from a graphophone –just like the one he would have bought with the money that Anse took to buy the replacement team of mules. Anse comes back from the house with two spades. They drive away from the house, but he looks back it. In the window Cash can see a woman’s face. After Addie is buried, some men come to take Darl away to the institution. A fight breaks out when he resists apprehension. Jewel is angry, yelling for them to kill Darl. Darl looks up at Cash and says, "I thought you would have told me." Then he begins laughing maniacally. Cash tells his brother that it will be better for him to go. Darl just keeps laughing. Cash feels conflicted, but he maintains his earlier conviction that nothing justifies burning down a barn, a man’s livelihood. But then he again doubts himself, reiterating that no man has a right to deem an action sane or crazy. Chapter 54 Peabody tries to remove the cement from Cash’s leg and takes with it 60-some square inches of skin. He marvels when Cash calmly accepts the situation, even the news that he might not be able to walk again. By now, Darl has been handcuffed and arrested. Peabody says they ought to have buried Anse while they were burying Addie, on account of how poorly he treats his children (like setting his son’s leg in cement).

    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.
