This chapter discusses the combined influence of Estelle Oldham, Caroline Barr, and Maud Faulkner on William Faulkner's writing career. It suggests that The Sound and the Fury is evidence of Oldham's, Maud's, and Barr's lifelong roles in shaping, sustaining, and constantly renewing Faulkner's creative imagination. It also provides three other documents that confirm the maternal imaginary influence of the three women in Faulkner's life.

Keywords:   William Faulkner, Estelle Oldham, Caroline Barr, Maud Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury, creative imagination, maternal imaginary
