i keep hearing that hes one of the best ever. but i cant stand the portrayal of southern dialect in speech, never mind writing. should i stick with it? i mean i have to because it's for a class, but does it get better? will it click?

    This is AP Lit Faulkner. Sack up and read his holy trinity: Go Down Moses, The Sound and the Fury, and Absalom Absalom.

    Then read Glissant's book on Faulkner

      Southern Gothic sucks in general because of how kitschy it is. Flannery O'Connor is the exception.

      If you think Faulkner is “kitschy” we did not read the same author…

      it's still some of the best literary documentations of southern vernacular that you can still get. AILD was the first novel to make me cry and is still some of the best text's top capture white trash so accurately and delicately. highly recommend you read carson mccullers or flannery o'connor if you're still too yankee to comprehend what faulkner's getting at

      What happens in this novel? Like some man lie on the ground and die?

      What makes it kitsch? Flannery O’Connor is good but all her stories are about the exact same thing and the theme doesn’t even really make sense

      o'connor is grotesque, not gothic.

    Read Absalom Absalom. There are very few lines of dialogue with heavy dialect.
