    Addie Bundren in William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying Woman is the source and sustainer of virtue and also a prime source of evil. She can be either; because she is, as man is not, always a little beyond good and evil. With her powerful natural drive and her instinct for the concrete and personal, she does not need to agonize over her decisions. There is no code for her to master, no initiation for her to undergo. For this reason she has access to a wisdom which is veiled from

    with the “reality” of what was happening was with Cora and Darl. “He did not answer. He just stood and looked at his dying mother, his heart too full for words.” This is how Cora views Darl, as a kind and loving son, the private favourite and love of Addie.
