- Quentin attempt to evade his awareness, Shreve the outsider (with Quentin?s help) reconstructs the story and understands the meaning of Thomas Sutpen?s life. In the novel Absalom, Absalom!, a multiple consciousness technique is used to reassess the process of historical reconstruction by the narrators.
- There are many unanswered questions concerning the novel Absalom, Absalom!, what exactly its author intended to get across through it or what he actually did with it. Many critics believe he just never reached a single and final intention, so he just left the final authorities in question, and he may have liked it that way (Parker 16).
- Absalom and Achitophel begins in the world of Old Testament history. The vague biblical past of the opening lines lets the narrative to be set from 2 Samuel in a wide historical frame that hopes to legitimize the king’s promiscuity by associating the king as father of the land:
- William Faulkner in his novels, The Sound and the Fury, The Intruder In The Dust, and Go Down, Moses written in 1929, 1948, and 1942 shows that Southerners treat African-Americans poorly not only in his fiction but as well as in history.

- Perhaps the greatest disservice that one can do to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales is to see them just as an anthology. With the Prologue as a kind of annotated table of contents, few ever read the tales from first to last, and for educational purposes the poems do lend themselves to individual study.
- The Canterbury Tales By far Chaucer’s most popular work, although he might have preferred to have been remembered by Troilus and Criseyde, the Canterbury Tales was unfinished at his death. No less than fifty-six surviving manuscripts contain, or once contained, the full text.
- Silence resounds as loudly as any noise in the Reeve?s Prologue and Tale. The reader is as puzzled by his utterances as the lack of them: his sudden sermon on death is matched by the quietness of two couples copulating in a small room of five, none of which are able to hear what the others are doing.
