it’s amazing what can be done with 26 letters and some punctuation

This evening I finished reading my first William Faulkner novel ever, ‘As I Lay Dying’. Strange is a word I’ll use for the moment. Visited the OleMiss William Faulkner website and read the commentary to make sure I understood the novel which turns out I had. Now on to some Jack Kerouac (The Subterraneans) whose work after reading Faulkner seems more normal than before.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

  1. Not that I have the intellect or experience to make actual insightful commentary- but that’s what I meant when I said he was “less accessible”.
    Anyhow, Faulkner’s not one of my favorites. I tend to favor authors whose love of humanity (rather than contempt) matches my own.
