That florid, swaggering gesture: Faulkners Thomas Sutpen as Southern Writer
Abstract: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.
