Flags in the Dust: The complete text of Faulkner's third novel, which appeared in a cut version as Sartoris

Flags in the Dust - William Faulkner, Douglas Day Wm Faulkner???START HERE.The characters are [as throughout his books] all people from his own life. With this book [unlike two previous witty novels] he discovered that these people could cast shadows, etc. And here he begins the endless cycle based on the postage stamp size place he knew.I had to reread the entire first block of text [not the first chapter, but the first block of text continuing on until there's extra leading and a new block begins], in order get his scale and proportion and thus [thru music] his wit and care.In and of itself, it's also an interesting read. Like the boy returned home from WWI who just wants to get into cars and wreck them. The proto-Existential Man?
