William Faulkner is a famous American novelist, and he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1949. He was regarded as “modern classic writer” by western Literature. Absalom, Absalom! is one of his most important works, and is also one of the most complicated and abstruse, the most epic style works.

Through these descriptions, William Faulkner created vivid characters, and through these characters, William Faulkner revealed the rotten and evil nature of racism of the Old South.
