Abor to keep them productive Mechanical invention had not advanced enough to provide the machines that the plantation owners needed to work such a large tract of land When you own land than you can work and there is not a labor pool available to sustain your industrywhat do you do Well we know what they did but what should they have done Around 1800 when cotton became king is when the demand for slaves escalated exponentially The potato famine in Ireland happened in 1845 which brought thousands of displaced Irish to the United States but this wave of immigration came too late to keep the South from becoming too economically dependent on slavery Now I m not advocating turning the Irish immigrants or the Chinese immigrants who followed into slaves but wouldn t it have been a better solution for our history if those plantation owners had adopted the flawed but still better than slavery system of tenant farmers Eventually technology would have caught up with the needs of large land owners which would have freed up the tenement farmers for the industrial work that made the North so strong Maybe the availability of that labor pool would have encouraged manufacturing in the South Some of the better tenement farmers would have become land owners themselves as plantations fell out of the hands of Southern aristocratic families due to the untimely death of a patriarch or because of mismanagement Not a perfect world but a better world and maybe just maybe we would have avoided a costly Civil War for which the South to this day has never fully ecovered But then would Southern literature be the same I have a grudging espect for Thomas Sutpen As a boy he was asked to deliver a message to a wealthy plantation owner in Virginia He watched the plantation owner lying in a hammock with his shoes off while a slave fanned him Thomas was asked to go to the backdoor to deliver his message He will never forget the slight He lays awake at night thinking about what he can do about it He does a stint in the West Indies and comes back to the United States specifically Mississippi with blacks speaking a strange language He wasn t even a gentleman He came here with a horse and two pistols and a name which nobody ever heard before knew for certain was his own any than the horse was his own or even the pistols seeking some place to hide himself uentin Compson is the thread that sews the plot together As Rosie Coldfield and his father and a host of other people tell him stories about Yoknapatawpha County his head becomes filled with a convoluted history of his birthplace uentin had grown up with that the mere names were interchangeable and almost myriad His childhood was full of them his very body was an empty hall echoing with sonorous defeated names he was a being an entity he was a commonwealth uentin spends time with Rosie Coldfield than he eally wants to but she has memories that he needs to hear to fill in the gaps of the story in his head uentinsitting in the buggy beside the Implacable Doll Sized Old Woman doll sized old woman her cotton umbrella smelling the heat distilled old womanflesh the heat distilled camphor in the old fold creases of the shawl feeling exactly like an electric bulb blood and skin since the buggy disturbed not enough air to cool him with motion created not enough motion within him to make his skin sweatThe families who have lived in this county in Mississippi for generations are also the same people who egarded
This New Comer Thomas 
new comer Thomas with bemusement When he successfully ooked a drunken Indian out of some land they clucked about that but then as he continued to gain influence and wealth building a comfortable living out of nothing they started to worry This opportunity had been there for them their whole lives but it took a man with daring from outside the county to see the potential or have the immorality to make it happen He took a wife descended from a good family and the community showed their disapproval by not showing up to the wedding Undaunted barely noticing that the community had turned against him Thomas Sutpen forged forward siring a son and a daughter and building the life for himself he had coveted as a boy in Virginia The Civil War happens Almost every able man is called up to serve Thomas s son Henry is away from school and has become friends with Charles Bon who because of the encouragement of his mother has at the advanced age of 28 decided to go back to school He meets up with Henry and as the plot advances we find out that Charles Bon is Henry s half brother Charles becomes engaged to Henry s sister Judith and of course she is also his half sister As you might expect this causes much consternation in the family I eally didn t think that Charles loved Judith It was not Judith who was the object of Bon s love or of Henry s solicitude She was just the blank shape the empty vessel in which each of them strove to preserve not the illusion of himself nor his illusion of the other but what each conceived the other to believe him to be the man and the youth seducer and seduced who had known one another seduced and been seduced victimised in turn each by the other conuerer vanuished by his own strength vanuished conuering by his his own strength vanuished conuering by his weakness I think he saw Judith as the only way of achieving his own birthright view spoilerHenry kills Charles to keep him from marrying Judith even though he eally loved himwelllike a brother hide spoiler.
