Description: 

Courthouse Square is the physical and social center of Yoknapatawpha County. On weekends it can be crowded with the wagons of country people in town for the day, but when the narrator reaches it, with “daylight coming . . . and the street lights still burning,” it is “empty” of everyone but him and the policeman whom he calls “the Law,” presumably the man called the night marshall in other texts (89).
