I'm reading the book now, 54 pages into it. So far, I have not encountered a word about Corporal Stephens yet, obviously. I was hoping to see some intelligent discussion on the book's page about how it is a fable or what allegory it is telling. The structure of 7 days and the cross is an obvious clue, but the devil's in the details.

A Fable stretches through a course of one week in which the main character is “Corporal Stephen”, whom narrates from his point of view in the trenches of France/5. Christ should compare favorably with him, should be a "posi tive" figure.
To put it another way, almost any positive, loving, sacrificial, spotless character who meets an unjust end and whose death seems in some way beneficial for others may be called a Christ figure.
The major trap for readers of A Fable is that Faulkner doesn't play by those. A Fable was a National Book Award recipient and is a typical overwrought account of a French mutiny in World War I.
It is also a veiled fable of the Passion of Christ/5(35).

Judas is there, and Peter, the apostles, Pilate and Herod, the Marys, and so on- recognizable, but distorted-although never with irreverence.
A Christ figure, also known as a Christ-Image is a literary technique that the author uses to draw allusions between their characters and the biblical Jesus. More loosely, the Christ figure is a spiritual or prophetic character who parallels Jesus, or other spiritual or prophetic figures.

It won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.
