Description: 

Lucas Beauchamp's sister Fonsiba moves to a farm near the ominously named Midnight, Arkansas, after her marriage. The farm is described as "a single log edifice with a clay chimney . . . no barn, no stable, not so much as a hencoop: just a log cabin built by hand . . . a farm only in embryo" (264). Midnight itself contains a tavern, a livery stable, a big store, a saloon, a blacksmith shop - and a bank, to which Ike McCaslin later transfers money to provide Fonsiba with a kind of allowance.
