Introduction
 In the course of the southern American literary development after the defeat of
the secession war, the use of manipulative time as a driving theme began to prevail. In
most novels of this region, time holds a significant amount of importance and in a way
drives the plot. It is clear that it is behind each event that takes place and holds any
story together. A novel like The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner portrays
time as a prolific contributing factor. Through his narration and perception, Faulkner
shows in this novel the characters’ attempt to manipulate time and its effect on both
them and the plot as a whole. Faulkner’s perception of time appears in his novels,
precisely in The Sound and the Fury as a pressure that affects in a complex way the
psychology, the morality and the actions of his characters. His intense preoccupation
with time as a central theme of his novel and time as a means of narration is a way for
him to explore the effects of time on the characters, while endeavoring to find a
technique for rendering it.
