Description: 

"Courthouse Square is the physical, political and social center of Yoknapatawpha. It appears in the majority of Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha fictions. Lucius uses "around the Square" as his point of reference for the "grocery and hardware and farmers' supply stores" from which he collects money every Saturday as an employee of his father's livery stable (3, 4). In this project we use the Square as the Location for places in Jefferson that cannot be more specifically located.
