I added this keyword to mark places where a character or text contemplates or imagines exceeding ordinary or usual boundaries. Specifically, this was added for when Quentin starts imagining "a hell beyond that" for him and Caddy. It can be used when "beyond" or a similar construction is used in figurative ways. JBP

3826 Themes and Motifs Absence/Loss Losing vs never having

Added for when Quentin makes the observation, about a man who castrated himself, "It's not not having them. It's never to have had them." I believe similar ideas crop up elsewhere in Faulkner - distinguishing between having and losing, or never having in the first place. JBP
