Example text

He began his film career in the 1930s, and among his early efforts were his co-screenwriting credit for The Road to Glory (1936), and his credit for contributing dialog to Slave Ship (1937). A few years later, Faulkner was sharing screenwriting credits for what would become two of the finest examples of the film noir genre: To Have and Have Not (1944) and The Big Sleep (1946). Faulkner’s writing helped make these motion pictures—the first based on an Ernest Hemingway novel, the second based on a Raymond Chandler tale—into classics of the American Cinema.

From the first, Thomas Sutpen is characterized as a hard, unscrupulous man. To a certain extent he is a man without a conscience. He bought Haitian slaves to build and work on his plantation, and while they were developing his property, they slept in the mud. He brought an architect from Martinique to design his house. Sutpen kept the architect against his will at the primitive camp, and like the slaves, captured him when he tried to escape. They all lived like this for two years, until the mansion was nearly completed, and Sutpen finally let the architect go.

Compson, Quentin’s father. He is telling Quentin the story of Miss Rosa’s life—how she was born to middle-aged parents years after her sister, Ellen, and how her mother died during childbirth. According to Mr. Compson, Miss Rosa grew up alone with her aunt and father, Goodhue Coldfield, who was a cold and bitter old man. Goodhue Coldfield was not always a bitter man. Before Thomas Sutpen came to Jefferson, he was an honest and upright Methodist, a man so moral that when he bought slaves he immediately freed them.
