    1. I read this in part as a response to what happened in Ferguson, the murder of that young black man still in his first youth. The poverty and nth-class status of blacks in the south at the time this novel is set--the 1940s, just before the advent of MLK and the Civil Rights Movement--was harsh and Faulkner captures it, and the murderous white vindictiveness, exquisitely. I like Faulkner. But if you have not yet read him, please don't start with Intruder. Read either The Sound and the Fury, As I L [...]

    2. Intruder in the Dust, William FaulknerIntruder in the Dust is a novel by the Nobel Prize–winning American author William Faulkner published in 1948. The novel focuses on Lucas Beauchamp, a black farmer accused of murdering a white man. He is exonerated through the efforts of black and white teenagers and a spinster from a long-established Southern family. It was written as Faulkner's response as a Southern writer to the racial problems facing the South. In his Selected Letters, Faulkner wrote: [...]

    3. Me: Mr. Faulkner, I can’t begin to tell you how honored I am that you agreed to take the time to answer a couple of questions from me. Thank you very much.Faulkner: No problem. I’m dead. I have all the time in the world. Me: Oh, right. Still, I’m sure you have lots of other fans chomping at the bit to get a few personal words from you. So, I thank you again.Faulkner: Let’s keep my bits out of it.Me: Pardon me. Anyhow, some people say they can’t understand your writing, even when they [...]

    5. Faulkner is one of my favorite authors and, although this is not one of my favorite of his books, it has so many powerful offerings, I have overlooked the occasional polemics (instead of conversation between characters) to give it a very good rating. It's heart is in the right place and most of the writing is too. Lucas Beauchamp has been arrested for the murder of a white man; for shooting him in the back of all things! And there the story would lie except that a white boy, an older white woman [...]

    6. داستان در مورد سیاه پوستی است که ظاهرا جوان سفیدپوستی را به قتل رسانده است . مرد سیاه پوست از نوجوان سفیدپوستی می خواهد تا به او کمک کند و از راز قتل پرده بردارد .ساده تر از رمان های قبلی فاکنر بود . یک جورایی به نظرم معمولی بود در حد مثلا خشم و هیاهو یا آبشالوم آبشالوم نبود اما خو [...]

    7. This one brought back many of my favorite characters from Yoknapatawpha County. Lucas Beauchamp is one of a kind, a black man with an attitude; that attitude being that he is just as good (and maybe better than some) as any white man. This took a certain amount of courage in 1940's Mississippi. After being accused of murder, being found standing over the dead body of a white man with a smoking gun in his pocket, he is arrested, and the town prepares for a lynching. Enter Gavin Stevens, county la [...]

    8. Rereading this one I realized why I’ve never liked To Kill a Mockingbird (which I read after this one) as much as most people. Not that I don’t like Harper Lee’s novel, just that I see it as simpler, more straight forward and less ambiguous than Faulkner’s. Early in the 40ies Faulkner wrote to his publisher about a book he had in mind which would be a “blood-and-thunder mystery novel, original in that the solver is a negro, himself in jail for the murder and is about to be lynched, sol [...]

    9. Well I'm done. I think the correct word is cadence, but I'll tell you what , I really have trouble getting into the rhythm of Faulkner's writing. Calling a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winning author a rambler is probably a bit rude but to say his sentences just go on and on really is putting it mildly as many of them may or might not even perchance take up an entire that is to say possibly the complete page. And punctuation, (what do double parentheses mean?? ) 'Nemmine that' Easier to read than Th [...]

    11. Description: Set in the deep south that provided the backdrop for all of Faulkner's finest fiction, Intruder in the Dust is the novel that marks the final phase of its author's outstanding creative period.

    12. Faulkner escribe sin respirar. Pasar del lacónico Cormac McCarthy a William Faulkner obliga al cerebro a hacer un ejercicio brutal: aquí las oraciones son extensas, kilométricas, exhaustivas. A lo James Joyce. Llegué a leer un párrafo tres veces para poder comprenderlo del todo, en un intento de no perder los referentes y el hilo de la historia. Y aun así creo que es poco. A pesar de esas dificultades de estilo que Faulkner pone en el camino,Intruso en el polvono pierde interés, ya que po [...]

    13. When explaining our summer reading assingments, our teacher told us to read Intruder In the Dust first, because it was a difficult book. She also told us that just because it was a hard book doesn't mean it isn't a good book. She said, and I quote, "The book doesn't suck, YOU suck for not being able to understand the book."With that in mind, I would like to say that Intruder In the Dust is a terrible book, but not because of the difficult writing style or lack of interesting characters, but mere [...]

    14. Βιβλίο που δεν είναι για ανάγνωση στα διαλείμματα της δουλειάς. Θέλει χρόνο και θέλει αφοσίωση, καθότι ολόκληρο είναι γραμμένο σαν σε παραλήρημα. Τεράστιες προτάσεις, χωρίς αναπνοή, με την πλοκή να έχει να χάνεται ανάμεσα στα νοήματα.Στο μύθο του βιβλίου δεν θα σταθώ γιατί [...]

    15. Dove into this right after Go Down, Moses thanks to Lucas Beauchamp and, well. I owe him one for that. I had to keep putting it down mid-page either to laugh or to think, which is the recipe for what I want out of anything.Also, I see a lot of people apple-to-appleing this with To Kill A Mockingbird but I’d say it’s more apple-to-pear: kind of similar enough on the outside but if you take a big bite you’re in for a pretty good surprise. There’s just a heap more moral complexity here, whi [...]

    16. Faulkner is an acquired taste it has taken me years to become accustomed to. This is a nice plot-driven mystery narrated by young Charles Mallison. Published twelve years prior to TKAM it begs for comparison. I'm absolutely impressed that Faulkner took on this subject matter at such an early date. His social commentary,although sometimes a bit wordy, was nonetheless quite valid. This is among my favorite Faulkners now, and I'm still a little surprised I had never been exposed to such an importan [...]

    17. It has taken me fourteen years since reading Light in August to pick up another Faulkner book. This must not happen again. I know the temptation to be lazy is sometimes overwhelming, but it is definitely worth the effort. Reading Faulkner is like stepping into a vortex: After the first wave hits you, you start spinning around trying to make sense of what you see like the narrator of Poe's "Descent Into the Maelstrom." Faulkner's prose has a robust, but exceedingly difficult quality to it. I will [...]

    18. In June of this year I wrote a piece on my Ana the Imp blog marking the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird, high among the greats of modern American literature. At the time another blogger suggested that there might be some similarities here with themes earlier examined in the work of William Faulkner. After a little exploration we both agreed that there were possible parallels between To Kill a Mockingbird and Intruder in the Dust, a novel publ [...]

    19. Este foi difícil O mistério passado no rescaldo do assassínio de um homem branco por um negro (Lucas Beauchamp), numa cidade do sul dos EUA. Para escapar ao linchamento o negro conta com a ajuda de um rapaz de 16 anos, do seu criado negro e de uma idosa. O que parece uma sinopse simples e atractiva não implica uma leitura fácil e fluída. O exercício de procurar no texto o que não está escrito afigura-se especialmente importante aqui, porque alguns acontecimentos reflectem os anteriores. [...]

    20. Ένα δύσκολο βιβλίο, δυσανάγνωστο και πυκνό υφολογικά. Η μετάφραση το έκανε ακόμα πιο δύσκολο. Σε κάποια σημεία ο Κορτώ δεν κράτησε μεταφραστικά το ύφος του κειμένου και χρησιμοποίησε λέξεις σύγχρονου λεξιλογίου ή καλύτερα της σημερινής ζωής. Ο μόνος λόγος που με βοήθησε να [...]

    21. لا يمكن تجاهل نبرة السخرية التي تملأ أجواء الرواية ولن يتم الاستمتاع الكامل بها إلا بتذوق سخريتها، بداية بالتساؤل حول لماذا تمت الجريمة ليلة الجمعة بالذات وحتى آخر سطر فيها وبطلنا في انتظار الفاتورة.بالطبع هناك فرق كبير في المستوى بين عملي فوكنر الخالدين "الصخب والعنف" و "بي [...]

    22. I was blown away by this novel; to me it captured everything a story ought to be, the language, the storyline, the tension. Intruder in the Dust is a murder mystery to be solved, written in the voice of a young boy. The stream of consciousness can be overpowering, but to me that makes it even more riveting. I remember the exhaustion of reading one sentence stretching over several pages. I felt it demanded an effort from the reader, but it was so worth it, in what you gained in getting close to t [...]

    23. You know you're in unexplored territory when William Faulkner writes a murder mystery, although "Intruder in the Dust" is more of a 1940s police procedural set in the Deep South and narrated by a sixteen year old boy (albeit in the third person) than a traditional whodunnit. That boy happens to be Chick Mallison, who also appears elsewhere in the Faulkner canon (eg. The Town, The Mansion). And the chief suspect is Lucas Beauchamp, another Faulkner regular. (No Snopeses or Sartorises to speak of [...]

    24. Intruder in the Dust by William Faulkner is one of the hardest books I've ever read. I hated every moment reading it, but I have to tell you it's one terrific story and I wound up loving it. There are quite a few difficult reads (Moby Dick for one) that I am perfectly willing to admit are great literature and tell a good story--but I hated them. I'm not going to tell anybody, "You've just got to read Moby Dick!" If you want to and wind up loving it, then fine. But don't expect me to do any adver [...]

    25. Intruder in the Dust: Not for Kudos or CashIntruder in the Dust by William Faulkner was selected by On the Southern Literary Trail as a group read for February, 2016. Special thanks to Diane Barnes for nominating this work. Come join us.“Some things you must always be unable to bear. Some things you must never stop refusing to bear. Injustice and outrage and dishonor and shame. No matter how young you are or how old you have got. Not for kudos and not for cash: your picture in the paper nor mo [...]

    26. Faulkner here mixes his typical excellent storytelling and character development with some detective work by 3 unlikely persons. The story focuses on Lucas Beauchamp, an elderly but proud black man accused of murder on the flimsiest of circumstantial evidence. He is obstinate and more than ready to pay with his life for a crime he didn't commit rather than suffer the indignity of having to point out how absurd the case against him is. Two young boys (one white and one black), an elderly woman wi [...]

    27. I picked up this novel at a library used book sale for one dollar. I didn’t have anything else by Faulkner, so I figured I might as well try it for such a good price. I’m very glad that I did so. When I started reading Intruder in the Dust, I almost gave up after the first two chapters. It wasn’t that the plot wasn’t interesting or that it wasn’t well-crafted, but I had never experienced Faulkner’s writing style. For anyone else who hasn’t read him, his sentences have very little p [...]

    28. Pedantic, repetitive, and (at least by today's standards) racist, Intruder In The Dust is far from Faulkner's best showing. The prose feels at times like an all too conscious borrowing of his own style, and yet the ponderousness of the characters' inner doubts and dialogues is often wasted on subjects as trivial as a young man's first cup of coffee or a mother's football fanaticism, making farcical what was grand about the style of say Absalom, Absalom!This book is billed as a murder mystery, wh [...]

    29. این کتاب.در کل قابل پیشنهاد ،مشکل اساسی در خوانش این اثر این بود که منقطع خواندمش هر بار چند صفحه و در کل مطمئن نیستم درست متوجه شدم یا نه که بر سر کرادفور گاوری چی امد. ظاهرا خودکشی کرد جذابترین بخش کتاب فقط جذابترین چیزی که میشه در این اثر پیدا کرد شخصیت بی اندازه جذاب و کاریزم [...]
