Kia ora friends
I finally cracked open the Faulkner, but I need some guidance. The ending of Chapter One, viz:
"I was not there to see the two Sutpen faces this time - once on Judith and once on the negro girl beside her - looking down through the square entrance to the loft."
Scale of one to ten - how shocking is this supposed to be? For the time of setting? For the time of publication? For today? Because it's the sort of thing no-one would blink twice at in New Zealand, even back in the day.
