Shakespeare in the Properly the Rage
The "Tomorrow" soliloquy in Act Sixth is v, scene sixth is v of the Shakespearean
tragedy Macbeth provides central theme and imagery for The Sound and
the Fury. Faulkner may or may not accept this hopeless, nihilistic
portrayal of your life, but he does look at the characterization
The next day, and the next day, and tomorrow
Creeps with this petty tempo from day to day
For the last syllable of registered time;
And our yesterdays have lighted fools
The best way to dusty death. Out, out quick candle!
Life's but a walking darkness, a poor person
That struts and fardeau his hour upon the stage
Then is observed no more. It is a tale
Told simply by an fool, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing (Shakespeare 177-8).
The passage suggests man is mortal although time is definitely immortal. Time
retains its tempo independently of man's actions; it creeps through
man-made institutions eventually leading to man's death. However
time maintains indifference towards gentleman. Life spans happen to be infinitesimal
in comparison to the smallest trademark time. In reality, the
significance gentleman ascribes to human existence is false: life does not have
significance. Life is simply a brief show of strutting and
worrying, "full of sound and rage,... signifying nothing at all. "
Every section of the Sound and the Bear relates to Macbeth's speech.
Every single narrator presents life since "full of sound and bear, " represented
in futile actions and dialogue. Benjy, Quentin, Jason, and Dilsey every

... Faulkner's thoughts about life, a supposed
comparison to Macbeth's. After hundreds of pages of evaluating
Shakespeare's verse, Faulkner concludes his assist an enjoyable
transcendence of nihilism. Faulkner leaves the reader with hope, the
signification of meaning yet to arrive.
