Description: 

Boston (along with "Chicago and Kansas City and Philadelphia") is cited as an epitome of municipal political corruption (192). Harvard, the prestigious university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, just next to Boston, is mentioned as one of the places at which the novel's hypothetical non-Southern reader may have been educated: "yourself the stranger, the outlander from B.A. (or perhaps even M.A.) at Harvard or Northwestern or Stanford" (205).
