    PDF/EPUB gigonog.me Î Light in August MOBI Õ Light in Kindle - light pdf, august kindle, Light in epub, Light in August MOBI Memory believes before knowing remembers Believes longer than recollects longer than knowing even wonders Are there many such novels that delve deep into our souls and that makes us suffer and weep? I believe there are many but not many that imprison us in its tidings and with their beauty in such a way that escape is an impossibility Yes we cannot run away any less than its wretched characters could Indeed William Faulkner in Light in August wrote a tragedy set in the fictional Jefferson that compares with the classic tale of Oedipus And so as he sat in the shadows of the ruined garden on that August night three months later and heard the clock in the courthouse two miles away strike ten and then eleven he believed with calm paradox that he was the volitionless servant of the fatality in which he believed that h
