Enlarged and reinforced my appreciation of "Absalom, Absalom!". However, it also raised some questions. Why is Sutpen so abhorred at the taint of black blood in his line? Presumably all he wants is the big plantation, money, power, wealth. And Faulkner indicates he was raised in West Virginia with no prejudice against blacks, in a slaveless world. He of all people should stand outside this. Yet we first see him with blacks as his property.
