Miss Quentin is the lone member of the newest generation
of the Compson family. Many parallels arise between Miss Quentin
and her mother, Caddy, but the two differ in important ways. Miss Quentin
repeats Caddy’s early sexual awakening and promiscuity, but, unlike
Caddy, she does not feel guilty about her actions. Likewise, Miss
Quentin grows up in a meaner, more confined world than Caddy does,
and is constantly subject to Jason’s domineering and cruelty. Not
surprisingly, we see that Miss Quentin is not nearly as loving or
compassionate as her mother. She is also more worldly and headstrong
than Caddy. Yet Miss Quentin’s eventual success in recovering her
stolen money and escaping the family implies that her worldliness
and lack of compunction—very modern values—indeed work to her benefit.
