Wordy Wednesday – “Sound and fury”

Its Wednesday again!

On today’s edition of wordy Wednesday i have a question for you jeopardy-style.

What phrase found in Shakespeare’s Macbeth  is also the title of William Faulkner’s Nobel prize winning novel?

Now before you can answer let’s give you some context; this is Macbeth’s famous soliloquy spoken right after Lady Macbeth’s demise.

Act V, Scene 5

MACBETH: She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Let’s give you the answer with a picture!

Happy Wednesday!
