As I Lay Dying

“A good carpenter. Addie Bundren could not want a better one, a better box to lie in.”

William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying (New York: Vintage International, 1985), 4-5.

It’s very peculiar to me how they address Addie’s coffin. It’s almost as if they take a serious aspect and downplay it.
