Faulkner uses stream of consciousness in As I Lay Dying.

The multiple points of view go somewhere between several different first-person passages and an intensely omnicient third-person. The voices are all related only to the time and geographic location, and possibly to the fact that every member of the family has a concerngreater than Addie, except for possibly Cash. Each character has a reliance on others for their own gain, incluing Addie herself, though she never tried asking others for it.
