“Faulkner was well acquainted with Poe’e work, especially the grotesque element in many of his stories. Very Poe-esque characters appear in the Snopes novels (especially Eula in The Hamlet); and several critics have noted resemblances between Quentin Compson in The Sound and The Fury and the speaker of Poe’s ‘The Raven’ – both are lovers mourning the loss of their cherished beauties and both are ‘visited’ – oddly so for the Faulkner novel – by a bird.”
