Title: Ladies, Gentlemen, and Ghosts: Women and the Southern Ideal in Four Novels by William Faulkner
Authors: Chun, Lynn
Advisor: Phillips, Kathy
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: In the second section of "The Sound and the Fury", Quentin Compson imagines his father speaking to him: "Women... they have an affinity for evil for supplying whatever the evil lacks in itself for drawing it about them instinctively as you do bed-clothing in slumber fertilising the mind for it until the evil has served its purpose whether it ever existed or no [sic]". In this much quoted line, a surprisingly substantial portion of William Faulkner's critical community has found what they believe to be the author's over attitudes towards women.
