4.0 von 5 Sternen A thrilling ride
I read this book in three sittings. The novel thrills as well as exasperates, especially as it starts to wind down at the end. Plot threads are not all neatly tied up at the end and the repetition of several character names -- Bayard in particular -- delineating three generations of male descendants with the same first name can be confusing and obscure, but the...

The two stars is just for his brilliant language and incredible games with words. If you're going to read "Flags," please do wait until you've already read "The Sound and The Fury," "Absalom Absalom," "Sanctuary," and some of his other stars, but don't read this one first. You'll miss out on the beauty of his other works because...

(REAL NAME)   
I read this book in three sittings. The novel thrills as well as exasperates, especially as it starts to wind down at the end. Plot threads are not all neatly tied up at the end and the repetition of several character names -- Bayard in particular -- delineating three generations of male descendants with the same first name can be confusing and obscure, but the central story of Young Bayard Sartoris, recklessly pursuing the fulfillment of a death wish out of guilt for the death of his brother in World War One, is undeniably powerful. The plot concerning Narcissa's mysterious anonymous love letters is also intriguing particularly in light of the fact that Faulkner picks up this plot thread in a short story called "There was a Queen". Horace Benbow and his relationship with Belle, a married and "fallen" woman, also makes for delicious, though highly literal, reading.
I was reminded in some respects of Dickens.
This book, the first of Faulkner's series of novels set in the fictional county of Yoknawpatawa Mississippi, is a terrific stepping stone from which to plunge into his later works.
It isn't perfect, but -- like Young Bayard's crazy, suicidal jaunts in his "modern" automobile --it is a terrific and thrilling ride.

The two stars is just for his brilliant language and incredible games with words. If you're going to read "Flags," please do wait until you've already read "The Sound and The Fury," "Absalom Absalom," "Sanctuary," and some of his other stars, but don't read this one first. You'll miss out on the beauty of his other works because you won't want to read him again. The sentences go on for days and are just incredibly rambling, even for Faulkner. The story doesn't live up to many of his other ones. One of the aspects of the plot is, is that southern male is troubled somewhat by his sister's sexuality. That usually juices up the rest of Faulkner but it's just kind of voyeuristic, gross and boring here. The copy I read had wisteria on the cover, and that is what this book reminds me of....faded wisteria, with a lingering sticky-sweet smell, but having lost its vibrant color and its potency.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Faulkner Bootcamp, 14. Dezember 1999
While excessively verbose (though one its outstanding features) 'Flags in the Dust' is a requisite early read for the serious Faulkner reader. If you must, read 'Sartoris' which is 'Flags in the Dust' with 80 or so pages edited out. If you just want a taste of Faulkner and aren't too serious, go for some of the more well-known works. If you want to understand Faulkner, you must familiarize yourself with him through such works as 'Flags in the Dust', 'Sanctuary', and 'Unvanquished'. If you jump right to 'The Mansion', or 'The Sound and the Fury' or 'Absalom, Absalom!' you will miss much.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Aim for this Flag - Then graduate to The Sound and the Fury, 28. Dezember 1999
If you want to start reading Faulkner, begin with this book. This is his first compelling novel, and, while not a masterpiece like The Sound and The Fury or Absalom, Absalom, it is more accessible and beautifully renders the aristocratic glamour and reckless violence of the Sartoris men. Equally arresting is the characterization of Horace Benbow.
