    He didn’t even falter. He released one hand in midstroke and flung it backward, striking the other across the chest, jolting him back a step, and restored the hand to the moving shovel, flinging the dirt with that effortless fury so that the mound seemed to be rising of its own volition, not built up from above but thrusting visibly upward out of the earth itself. (Faulkner 1994: 102) I cannot improve on Michael Toolan’s reading of the passage (Toolan 1990: 119): he notes that Rider is not, syntactically, the stable subject of the verbs “striking,” “jolting,” and “flinging,” the first two of which find their subject in “one hand” and not “He”; while “flinging” displaces the pronoun for “the moving shovel” as subject.

    Among these stories was “Dry September,” written in early 1930, a lynching tale that indicts both individual aggression and communal complicity (among whites; there is no black community to speak of in the story) for the racial violence of the small-town South. This sort of story, for all its indignation still a fairly isolated example, contextualized Faulkner’s consciousness of racial injustice within the larger constellation of themes he was addressing during this period – among them, primarily, a deep concern with individual human identity in the face of two overwhelming forces: society and history.
