    I love the below post by the way! HA! I just wanted to let you know that I am halfway through 'Tess of the D'Uberville' and I am loving it. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I look at the Faulkner novels set in Yoknapatawpha, the same way I look at Prout's Remembrance of Things Past: one large work; it's a cheat, but what I've read so far is so very good. I rarely appreciate setting, but Faulkner's use of setting to signify time, the sound of Cash working on the coffin or the smoke seen in Light in August, always gives me the pleasure of recognition.

    I'm reading Dante's Inferno again. I'm hoping that As I Lay Dying gets picked in November, because I'm ready to give it another read. This time I'll focus on the is and was.

    Godot was the first thing I read of Beckett and it was impressive, but the Trilogy, or Molloy alone, is a tour de force.

    I'm now convinced that Beckett's Trilogy and As I Lay Dying are the best education on the first-person perspective. Good call.

    This copy didn't, however, had I been smart I could have looked online. I had a fair grasp, but there were a few characters that I had to read further to keep up with. Luckily I caught on after a while, and it didn't ruin the story, however, when I read 'The Brothers Karamazov' I will make sure to look into that. Thanks!

    I finished 'The Idiot' and would highly recommend it! I had some trouble during the first two parts keeping track of my characters as I am unfamiliar with Russian names but I finally succeeded. The symbolism between the main character, Myshkin, and Christ is uncanny. Well I will say no more so as not to spoil the story for you, but you should definitely read it when you get a chance.

    hey, I'm really interested in William Faulkner, and As I Lay Dying is on my next to read list
    so i would like any suggestions about his writing and maybe i should start with other one of his works?

    I can't count how many times I've read the book and seen the movie It's very sad at times but I've always really identified with the struggles Philip goes through, especially his intellectual wanderings and angsty cynicism he throws at life. I don't like the ending though, kind of boring
