The First World War ended before he finished his training and he returned to Oxford, Mississippi and enrolled at the University of Mississippi. He dropped out of school in and began working for the Mississippian , contributing poems, short stories and articles.
He moved to New York City in and held a variety of jobs including postmaster and bookshop assistant.
In , he published The Marble Faun , a collection of poetry. He moved to New Orleans in and became acquainted with Sherwood Anderson, who encouraged him in his writing. In , he published his first novel, Soldier's Pay , and travelled to Europe for some months. Returning to New Orleans, he worked on the novel, Flags in the Dust , which was eventually published as Sartoris in Faulkner's use of the Mississippi and Deep South backdrop in his stories became a trademark of his work.
He returned to Mississippi in and downloadd an antebellum house which he named Rowan Oak. When Sutpen tells Henry that Charles is his half-brother and that Judith must not be allowed to marry him, Henry refuses to believe it, repudiates his birthright, and accompanies Charles to his home in New Orleans.
They then return to Mississippi to enlist in their University company, joining the Confederate Army to fight in the Civil War. During the war, Henry wrestles with his conscience until he presumably resolves to allow the marriage of half-brother and sister; this resolution changes, however, when Sutpen reveals to Henry that Charles is part black.
At the conclusion of the war, Henry enacts his father's interdiction of marriage between Charles and Judith, killing Charles at the gates to the mansion and then fleeing into self-exile. Thomas Sutpen returns from the war and begins to repair his dynasty and his home, whose hundred square miles have been reduced by carpetbaggers and punitive northern action to one.
He proposes to Rosa Coldfield, his dead wife's younger sister, and she accepts. However, Sutpen insults Rosa by demanding that she bear him a son before the wedding takes place, prompting her to leave Sutpen's Hundred. Sutpen then begins an affair with Milly, the year-old granddaughter of Wash Jones, a squatter who lives on the Sutpen property. The affair continues until Milly becomes pregnant and gives birth to a daughter.
Sutpen is terribly disappointed, because the last hope of repairing his Sutpen dynasty rested on Milly giving birth to a son. Sutpen casts Milly and the child aside, telling them that they are not worthy of sleeping in the stables with his horse, who had just sired a male.
An enraged Wash Jones kills Sutpen, his own granddaughter, and Sutpen's newborn daughter, and is in turn killed by the posse that arrives to arrest him. Henry has returned to the estate to die. Three months later, when Rosa returns with medical help for Henry, Clytie mistakes them for law enforcement and starts a fire that consumes the plantation and kills Henry and herself.
The only remaining Sutpen is Jim Bond, Charles Bon's black grandson, a young man with severe mental handicaps, who remains on Sutpen's Hundred. Analysis Like other Faulkner novels, Absalom, Absalom!
The history of Thomas Sutpen mirrors the rise and fall of Southern plantation culture. Bibliography 1. Thomas Sutpen rigorously pursues his design at all costs, not considering the possible consequences.
This moral flaw in his character causes the downfall of his dynasty and the destruction of the whole family.
This tragic development of the story provokes the idea of poetic justice, where virtue is rewarded and vice is punished. But can such a sharp categorization really be applied on this complex novel?
However, first of all I will take a closer look at the term poetic justice in general. Poetic Justice: Definition and origins The concept of poetic justice dates back to ancient philosophers such as Plato where it was understood as the representation of fortune of virtue and the misfortune of vice Zach According to Rhymer, poetic justice signifies the distribution, at the end of a literary work, of earthly rewards and punishments in proportion to the virtue or vice of the various characters.
Ryhmer suggested that a poem is an ideal realm of its own, and should be governed by ideal principles ofdecorumand morality and not by the random way things often work out in the actual world. It would, for example, destroy the possibility of tragic suffering.
This tragic suffering is to be separated from what a protagonist may have deserved because of his tragic flaw Abrams The term poetic justice was first only reserved to be used for tragedy, but by the seventeenth century it was also used for comedy, epos and novel and eventually spread to all genres.
