Abstract: 

THIS PAPER IS AN ATTEMPT TO MANIFEST THE PARADOX OF “OTHER” IN WILLIAM FAULKNER’S THE SOUND AND THE FURY AND LIGHT IN AUGUST. UNDER THE LIGHT OF DIALOGISM, THE RESEARCHER TRIES TO PROVE THAT, ON THE ONE HAND, THE TWO NOVELS ARE DIALOGIC AND, ON THE OTHER HAND, THE CULTURE REPRESENTED IN THEM IS MONOLOGIC. IN OTHER WORDS, WHILE FAULKNER’S WORKS BECOME MEANINGFUL DEPENDING ON THE “OTHER” THE CULTURE INTRODUCED IN THEM DENIES ALTERITY. THIS IS A BIG PARADOX. ALTHOUGH FAULKNER WRITES HIS BOOKS BASED ON THE CULTURE HE HAS BEEN RAISED WITH, HE RENDERS AN INDIRECT CRITICISM OF IT ONLY THROUGH DEPICTING IT IN HIS BOOKS AND SHOWING ITS COROLLARIES TO HIS READERS. IN ORDER TO PROVE THAT FAULKNER’S THE SOUND AND THE FURY AND LIGHT IN AUGUST ARE MEANINGFUL BASED ON THE “OTHER” IT SHOULD BE MENTIONED THAT THEY HAVE A CORROBORATIVE DIALOGUE WITH FOUCAULT’S MADNESS AND CIVILIZATION. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY STYLIZE IT. IN ADDITION, TO PROVE THAT THE CULTURE IMBEDDED IN THESE WORKS DENIES ALTERITY, SEVERAL LEVELS OF DISCRIMINATION COULD BE EXAMINED. THEY COULD BE PUT UNDER THE GENERAL TITLE OF DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE “OTHER”.
