Snopes 2

by sd6161 on Oct 7, 2007

The Town, published in 1957, is the second novel in William Faulkner's beloved trilogy of the Snopes Family. Although there was a near 17 year gap between The Hamlet (Snopes 1) and The Town, Faulkner's style of story telling allowed readers to re-visit the characters and story lines created in his earlier work. The Town quickly sweeps readers back into the characterlogical lives; and individual perspectives of the primary characters. As Flem is now in a superficial position of power in "Jefferson County," his greed and lack of moral conscious or regard for others, as a means to acheive authority, begins to crumble. Once again, the best way to enjoy Faulkner's work is to simply let the stoty unfold. His story telling is true to man's innate nature; "expect the unexpected."
