Biography: 

The fifth and youngest child of Anse and Addie Bundren, Vardaman narrates ten chapters in which we follow the progression of a child’s grieving process after the death of a parent. He also reveals poignant and specific examples of the poverty in which he resides. He is described by the other narrators as very small.

Note: 
We are assuming Vardaman is between 6 and 10 for the purposes of a birth date. The unbroken nature of his narratives that moves from present to past without any signal makes it fairly easy to identify them as stream of consciousness.
