Description: 

The narrator never names his town; in fact, Faulkner deliberately casts it as anonymous, with counterparts all over the country (calling them "little towns like this one" [194]); we infer that it is Jefferson because of its similarities to the county seat of Yoknapatawpha. At the center of town, the Square contains the various offices, businesses, and public buildings visited by the three aviators in "Death Drag." It also witnesses the airplane's dubious entry into town.
