Example text

The explanation we have comes to us through Jason's account and through the vague reference made by Dilsey to Roskus in section one. Though she opposes the prohibition against Caddy, Dilsey does not clarify how Mrs. Compson has prevailed, nor why she, 33 New Essays on The Sound and the Fury Caddy, and Mr. Compson have not offered greater resistance to or subversion of the policy. Only Jason, who clearly profits, exhibits clear motivation and detail about how Caddy is thwarted. It is an interesting anomaly that though Jason's own track record for success is generally poor, he has nevertheless managed to keep all the women checkmated for seventeen years through his dubious cunning.

Irigaray identifies it as "specific exploitation/' by which a woman is rendered "the object of a transaction" and who, through her "use, consumption, and circulation... "58 Woman's interchangeability and the intersection of sex and economy create the "grammar" of his cruel discourse:59 [T]hen he thought of the money again, and that he had been outwitted by a woman, a girl. If he could just believe it was the man who had robbed him. But to have been robbed of that which was to have compensated him for the lost job, which he had acquired through so much effort and risk, by the very symbol of the lost job itself, and worst of all, by a bitch of a girl.

Mrs. Compson may know everything, as Joan Williams has persuasively argued, if Caddy has confided in her, counting on her support in this crisis. If so, then Caddy's unhappiness and tears need not be rooted in her mother's response, or even in the doom of respectable marriage; mother and daughter may well have charted together as coconspirators. The tears may be prompted by the biology of her condition, triggered by a recognition of the diminished freedom she now faces as the future Mrs. Head. They may even be for the little girl from "Twilight" who failed to "run away and never come back" (19) and must now go instead to South Bend by way of French Lick - all the way to Indiana.
