Faulkner's classic novel about racial injustice and the larger role of race relations in a small town in Mississippi in the 1940s. The story 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. The work is notable for its use of the stream of consciousness style of narration and includes lengthy passages on the Southern memory of the Civil War.
