Comments for ABSALOM:

It is a fallacy that Absalom, the son of David, got his hair caught in a tree. He had long, beautiful hair, it is true, but the Scripture says his "head" was caught in the tree. See II Samuel 18:9. [noted -ed]

William Faulkner wrote a novel entitled Absalom, Absalom! about a slaveholding family in Mississippi during the late 1800s. Familial relations and racism are central themes.

I like that guy. His brother raped his sister and David didn't do anything about it. So, as a good brother, Absalom killed the guy who had hurt his sister. Then David annoyingly starts to care. That story made me really not like David. Dinah's brothers got to slaughter (yes, my translation uses that word) an entire town without any major reprecussions.
