Description: 

Courthouse Square sits at the center of both the town of Jefferson and the county of Yoknapatawpha. It only appears once in this story as the setting of an event, when Stevens "found" Ratliff "somewhere on the Square" (88). Throughout Digital Yoknapatawpha, however, we also use the Square as the default location for Jefferson events or characters that are not identified with a specific place in town, or as the location from which a first-person story is being told, when no specific setting for the narrator is provided.
