That florid, swaggering gesture: Faulkners Thomas Sutpen as Southern Writer
This paper considers Absalom, Absalom!'s Thomas Sutpen as an artist figure, discussing his life in terms of Bakhtin's continual mutual interaction between work and world. By treating Sutpen's career as a self-constructed narrative, we can assess anew both his rise and fall, and the extent to which he can be called a representative Southerner.
