I recently read 'A Rose for Emily'. I am a fan of Faulkner, pic related is one of my favourite novels, but I did not enjoy 'A Rose for Emily'. However, as a short story, I still believe that it's well-written and worth reading.
Is it possible for something to be objectively good but not be appreciated, loved or enjoyed? Or is art (literature in this instance) ENTIRELY subjective and void of objectivity?

What are some literary characters similar to Caddy Compson? Where they start off seeming very pure and innocent but as the book goes on it reveals that they've been whoring around.

The first two parts were kino. The second half was mindless American south drivel and Jason and his mother were painful to read.

Am I too Euro to get it or is there some deeper meaning behind it?

Also Faulkner larping blacks was harder to read than the Quentin parts.

So I've started reading this. I'm really enjoying the first chapter and how it's written in this really weird dream-like atmosphere and how it frequently timeskips on a literal page by page basis. I don't think I've read any book that does something like it. However, I have heard that castration is a plot element to the book. Is this true? If so, I'm afraid I have to drop it, because that kinda shit really freaks me out.

Benjy
>Unable to live in the present because there is nothing there for him anymore.
Caddy
>Undisiplined girl who acts impulsively and thinks everything is just fun and games
Quentin 1910
>Very immature, hormone driven and sex deprived. Though caddy doesn't think his virginity bothers him, it does and hes insecure about that and other things that expose him as the immature child that he is. Seeing his sister grow up and leave him, still a child is what drives him to suicide
Jason
>Outcast and forgotten by his father quentin and caddy which is why he resents them even in his youth. After being fucked over by them he decides to focus on himself only. He's been robbed so I kinda don't blame him for trying to take an eye for an eye by robbing quentin
Quentin 1928
>A girl without parents, how else would you expect her to grow up. Jason uses her for caddy, and as a way of getting revenge and her grandmother only cares about her in how she makes the family look.
Dilsey
>too stupid to care about anything

He's right Anon.
I hope you can throw away the behaviors and habits that no longer serve you and get new ones that will guide your new interests of reform.

As for the book rec, read pic related. It's got that an hero feel.

just got this
i didn't get it to flex on normies by reading a difficult book, or because i found the story interesting, or because it was a classic
i just saw it mentioned somewhere and found reading something that was partially from the perspective of a nonverbal retard to be fascinating
also wanted to see if i could get through what is commonly considered one of the more difficult books to read
don't think i'll make it far desu

I picked this up on a whim at the used bookstore. Didn't know what I was getting into and still don't really know.

Threw me into an extreme and intense pessimism, an existential crisis I couldn’t even recognize. I was definitely too young when I read this.

Currently reading pic related and I'm really enjoying it. I'm also reading a reading guide along side it. Am I doing it wrong? Maybe I should have gone blind into the text? I feel I'd miss so much without the notes. English is not even my native language. I'm midway through Quentin's section btw.

W. Faulkner thread I guess. It's my first time reading him, any tips on what to read next? Do girls like it when you say you read Faulkner?
