Description: 

In The Mansion, Faulkner does not describe this location at all. It is simply the setting in which Mink Snopes touches his wife "that first time with amazement and reverence and incredulous excitement the night of his marriage" (100). In The Hamlet, by contrast, Faulkner provides rich detail of Mink's quest to find the sea and instead happening upon a "south Mississippi convict camp" (244) where he meets his future wife. In the previous novel, we included the "nearest county seat" where Mink gets married (264) in this location marker -- and for consistency across novels and maps, we have done the same for The Mansion.
