About
The Book
Absalom, Absalom! is Faulkner’s epic tale of Thomas Sutpen, an enigmatic stranger who comes to Jefferson, Mississippi, in the early 1830s to wrest his mansion out of the muddy bottoms of the north Mississippi wilderness. He was a man, Faulkner said, “who wanted sons and the sons destroyed him.”

What Drew Gilpin Faust says

One of the great American novels, and perhaps the greatest to depict the American South and the Civil War. A meditation on what history is and why it matters.
