"Reading Faulkner at 17, You Forsee Your Reckoning"

Okay, I never read Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, whether as an adult or at seventeen. But this amazing poem on Slate, “Reading Faulkner at 17, You Forsee Your Reckoning,” by Catherine Pierce makes me wish I had torn myself away from whatever I was reading at 17 (probably Gone With the Wind yet again) and given Faulkner a whirl.
