FAULKNER: Read it four times. The Paris Review - The Art of Fiction No. 12, Interview with William Faulkner (via thelongesttrainieversaw) (via acidpriestess)
"They heard! —they suspected! —they knew! —they were making a mockery of my horror!-this I thought, and this I think. But anything was better than this agony! Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! I felt that I must scream or die! and now —again! —hark! louder! louder! louder! louder!"
-From The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe
