Biography: 

This icon represents the various farmers and their wives who are described coming into Jefferson on the weekend. It includes the three women whom Horace sees getting down from a wagon and "donning various finery" on the street in front of his house, as well as "the women on foot, black and white, unmistakable by the unease of their garments," and the men "in slow overalls and khaki" who move in crowds through the town square and stand in throngs "listening" to the music playing on radios and phonographs in record and drug stores (111, 112). Though it is planting season, they return to town, "most of them," on Monday when Tommy's corpse is brought to the undertaker's (112).
