As Quentin continues to listen to Rosa, while somehow "remembering" what his father will say later that day, the evoked ghosts of Sutpen and Ellen morph into an imagined photograph of the four Sutpens - Thomas, Ellen, Judith and Henry - as a "conventional family group" (9), juxtaposed to the outraged voice of Rosa talking to him in the same room.
