Faulkner's ability to shift narrative voice in As I Lay Dying results in a rich tapestry of often competing perspectives, where information is doled out in small bits, left to the reader to piece together in an understanding of the larger (yet not complete) family portrait of the Bundrens.
William Faulkner's self-proclaimed masterpiece, As I Lay Dying, originally published in 1930, is a fascinating exploration of the many voices found in a Southern family and community.
The novel's title— As I Lay Dying —invokes a first-person speaker, presumably the voice of the dead mother, Addie Bundren.

 BookkooB: The Lays of Beleriand - J. R. R. Tolkien
The Lays of Beleriand contains 2 partially completed verse tales, the 1st of which – ‘The Lay of the Children of Hurin’ is hampered by it’s reader unfriendly metre, and is no improvement on the prose version as already given in earlier volumes.
One of them is the alliterative poem Lay of the Children of Húrin, the second one is the octosyllabic poem Lay of Leithien, i.e the story of Beren and Lúthien).
In contrast ‘The Lay of Leithian’ is an excellent epic poem, and it’s a sad loss that this was never completed, as I feel this would ultimately have been one of Tolkiens most celebrated works.

Ishmael also mirrors Brahma in his possession, for a moment at least, of four heads: "Here, now, are two great whales, laying their heads together; let us join them, and lay together our own," he declares, calling the reader to bear witness to a pair of whales lashed to the Pequod (Melville, Moby Dick 427).
As Brahma, Ishmael reveals the creative nature of the novel and the interactive relationship between the author and the reader, calling upon the reader to help in the creation and definition of the novel's universe.
However, sharing in Ishmael's survival, the reader's soul is purged of this spirit, and the reader may begin a new life.

 Reader-response criticism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some take the position that there is no objective literary text at all, that the entire meaning of a literary work is in the reader's mind, and that the reader's personal biography, physical status, and psychology lay therefore at the center of a literary text.
In general, one can group reader-response theorists into three groups: those who focus upon the reader's experience and psychology, those who concentrate on the linguistic and rhetorical dynamic of audience, and those who concentrate on readers as cultural and historical ciphers.
This last approach, sometimes called "reception aesthetics" rather than "reader response," is the approach taken by some followers of Hans-Georg Gadamer, most notably Jauss.

 4Reference New Imperialism/archive 1
New Imperialism had its origins in the breakdown of Pax Britannica; your revision not only fails to indicate this, but also leaves a lay reader with the impression that the era of Cobdenite imperialism was the opening phase of New Imperialism.
This is a jumbled, utterly incoherent mess of topics that no lay reader would be able to put in context after reading your version.
As the Franco-Prussian War is clearly noted as a "beginning" for the New Imperialist Era, and this same war is noted as a major even in the end of Pax Brittanica, I do not think the reader will doubt that the era of Pax Brittanica ended and resulted in an era of new Imperialism.

 Patricia Cornwell
Although Cornwell's usual habit of describing her characters in great detail in every book is evident, I believe to get the most enjoyment out of The Last Precinct, a reader must be familiar not only with the characters, but also the interpersonal relationships between the people.
But when Cornwell talks about computers, I feel that she tries to impress the reader with a lot of abbreviations and technical terms and to create an aura of mysticism about actually quite simple facts that are decribed better elsewhere.
Break out the champagne: Patricia Cornwell has thankfully moved on from her controversial campaign to lay the Jack the Ripper murders at the door of the painter Walter Sickert, and in Trace is again raising our pulse rate by taking us into the dangerous world of consultant pathologist Dr Kay Scarpetta.

 Episcopal Glossary
The subdeacon is now usually a layperson, probably a licensed layreader and chalice bearer who reads the epistle, carries and holds the Gospel Book, leads the intercessory prayers, and/or assists the priest or deacon in the setting of the "Eucharistic Table".
Occasionally, the title Subdeacon is given to a Lay Reader or Licensed Eucharistic Minister in a church to indicate that he or she is the "head" Lay Reader or Licensed Eucharistic Minister.
In the early days of the Catholic and Anglican Church, the subdeacon was an ordained office (like the deacon), but that is no longer true.

Barnes shows little of his writing skill, especially when he tries to fill in the historical background of his alternate world for the reader.
Furthermore, the history Barnes postulates is so convoluted and nonsensical that his method of expressing it to the reader leaves the reader feeling like Barnes's history is not plausible.
As the first book in a series, Barnes must lay the background for his universe, which he does well.

However, sharing in Ishmael's survival, the reader's soul is purged of this spirit, and the reader may begin a new life.
Ishmael's narrative, then, may be seen as an attempt at defining the incomprehensible in comprehensible terms, and Melville's definition of the novel as a medium may be viewed similarly.
