The Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson relations, that includes essentially the most memorable characters in literature: appealing, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant. Their lives fragmented and harrowed by means of heritage and legacy, the character’s voices and activities mesh to create what's arguably Faulkner’s masterpiece and  one of the best novels of the 20 th century.

Supplement Since 1942 the collection of supplementary material has been steadily progressing alongside the main compilation. The original intention, to publish a shorter WNTwhich would incorporate some of this material has been abandoned and it is not now certain how this can best be publishedperhaps in supplementary volumes, as a completely new" WNT" or in the form of separate chronological dictionaries.

According to Cohen and Kraak any spelling reform should take account of transformational-generative phonological principles.
