The Sound and the Fury: June Second, 1910

In the second chapter we read the voices and memories of Quentin, one of the three brothers of the family and a young student at Harvard. If in the first chapter it was difficult to understand Benjy' story, it is now complicated too to follow Quentin's narrative and the chronological jumps of his thoughts. 

For those of us struggling to understand each one of the pages as well as to keep being motivated to keep reading, it might be helpful to know that we are not alone: in many reviews and analysis of the book it is said that the book requires intense concentration and patience to interpret and understand. 

So, we encourage you to keep reading and sharing your thoughts… and doubts.
