Summary: 

A very nested passage, in which Quentin explicitly tells Shreve what Sutpen told Grandfather about the "six or seven years" between the time he left home and the scene in the besieged Haitian room (199). It takes into account how Sutpen tells the story and how each listener - Shreve and Grandfather - respond. [SOURCE: Sutpen, Grandfather, Quentin]
