Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
Review Summary: Absalom, Absalom! is a book that you can easily underestimate. Your persistence will be rewarded with pleasure if you are patient, and assume that something magnificent will appear that is different from what you expect. The story is a cross between a Greek tragedy, King Lear, and the oral tradition of story-telling. As such, it strikes the deepest chords of human connection and ambition. The primary settings are Mississippi and the West Indies from the Antebellum period through Reconstruction and into the early 20th century. The themes touch deeply on Southern tradition, slavery, and social class. This is a challenging book to read, and will appeal primarily to those who like difficult books that are full of allusions. For most, having read other Faulkner novels will make this one easier to access and understand. As I Lay Dying is a good precursor for this novel.

Reader Caution: A six-letter word beginning with "n" to describe people of Afro-American descent is used frequently in this book in ways that will offend many people. The use of the word is consistent with the beliefs and the historical moment of the characters who utter it, and does not reflect racist beliefs by the author.

Review: Absalom, Absalom! is certainly one of America's greatest tragic novels. Thomas Sutpen arrives in Jefferson, Mississippi in middle age with a burning desire to establish a magnificent plantation and a dynasty with a leading role in society. To accomplish this, all he has available is his passion, a French architect, some slaves from Haiti, and a huge tract of land that he has somehow swindled out of the Native Americans. From the mud, his dream rises. But his very determination to accomplish his dream causes counterforces to rise that drag his dream into the mud again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Should be the second Faulkner book you read 19. November 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I've read all of Faulkner's work and I truly believe that those who find 'Absalom' hard to comprehend should start by first reading 'The Unvanquished'. It gives one a more comfortable, easier and firmer foothold in Yoknapatawpha County so that when "Absalom, Absalom" is read, one will better understand what the author is telling us....how it felt to BE southern at Quentin's time. All the promise and past glory, all the self-destruction and inner demise is there. "Intruder in the Dust" should be the third book to be read. Those three give you a priceless inside track into the works of Faulkner. His short stories, "A Rose for Emily" and "Tomorrow" show both sides of the southern social strata. These stories are both masterpieces yet easy for the new Faulkner reader to appreciate. Although "The Sound and the Fury" is used in many colleges as an introduction to Faulkner, I feel that choice is not good. That particular book, although popular with many, was far from his best work. His style went awry there, in my opinion. The heaviness of the dialect and the time in which the story took place is no way to introduce anyone to this marvelous writer.
But of his complete body of work, "Absalom, Absalom" is the magnificent star and nobody should deny themselves the opportunity of reading this great contribution to American literature.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect reading experience 26. September 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Absalom, Absalom is one of the best books I have ever read. To the reader who has the endurance and patience to plow through page after page without paragraph or any other interruption in layout the novel is a wonderful reading experience for three reasons:
1. Story: It is a compelling story of fratricide, incest, war and greed. It is tragic in the true sense of the word to see the characters struggle and be defeated eventually. Just a perfect story.
2. Historic Background: The novel gives an insight into life in the South before and after the Civil War. Anybody not living in the South should read the book to get an impression of the impact the Civil War - a war that is hardly paid any attention to in Europe - and the Reconstruction period have left on this part of the US and its lifestyle and culture.
3. Language: Faulkner is a master of the English language. I found myself rereading many sentences - not only because they were so long that I lost track, but also because of the powerful and elegant expressions used. Faulkner makes you appreciate the beauty of the English language - as far as language is concerned, Absalom, Absalom is definitely the best book I have read so far in English.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My favourite book - EVER! 11. Juni 2000
Von Bevan Lee
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an amazing reading experience. A book that simply cannot be read only once. I have read it five times and each time is a totally different experience. The greater the familiarity with the characters, style and rather convoluted narrative, the greater the rewards. Your first time is without a doubt going to be difficult, but then with each re-reading the material becomes clearer, until you suddenly wonder why you ever found it hard in the first place. Huge in scope, yet intimate. It tackles great themes and succeeds. This material in lesser hands would have been a blood and guts piece of ante-bellum grand guignol. In the hands of Faulkner it is a true masterpiece of twentieth century literature.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Logopoeia
I have absolutely no words to describe the weird yet deep feeling of joy when having read and understood the book to a certain degree. Ezra Pound might help: Logopoeia.
