Description: 

We don't really have a place on any map for "Heaven," but just as The Hamlet contains a scene in "Hell," Absalom! includes the posthumous reunion that Mr. Compson imagines between Wash and Sutpen in an unnamed place that is clearly heaven: a place "serene, pleasant, unmarked by time or change of weather," and even with a new "scuppernong" arbor in which they can sit (152).
