Description: 

The De Spain place makes a deep impression on the country-bred narrator, with a yard "bigger than the farms I had seen," a drive "wider and smoother than the roads in Frenchman's Bend" and a house that seems to him "bigger than the courthouse" (106). His reaction is very similar to Sarty Snopes' when he first sees the De Spain mansion in "Barn Burning," but the houses are located in different places in Yoknapatawpha. In "Barn Burning" the De Spain plantation is in the country some distance from town. In "Shall Not Perish," the de Spain mansion is located in or just outside of Jefferson.
