Quentin is the oldest child of the Compson family. He is a very intelligent boy. When he is preparing to go to Harvard, and his family sells a large land to a local golf club in order to afford the funds to send him there. We understand that Quentin's future is very important for the family. He is the honor of the Compson family.

Caddy is also not a bright person he is a promiscuous girl. But Quentin loves so much her; he is always interested in Caddy. When Caddy loses her virginity, Quentin threatened to kill her and himself because Caddy is very important for Quentin.
Quentin is a sensitive person and he always thinks about bad events in the family. He has lots of tragic memories about his family.
