Where in the actual novel can I locate Faulkner's longest sentence (1,287 words) in "Absalom, Absalom!"?
I wasn't able to find the actual sentence, but I found this in Absalom, Absalom's Wikipedia entry:
The Guinness Book of World Records has an entry for what it claims is the longest proper sentence in English. It cites a sentence from "Absalom, Absalom! containing 1,287 words.
