Description: 

Book Two of The Hamlet ends with an italicized scene in hell, where "the Prince" of Darkness dwells in a "magnificent kingly hall hung about with the proud battle-torn smokes of the old martyrs" and where one can hear the "constant screams of authentic Christians" (168). Faulkner is obviously being whimsical, but we needed somehow to put the location into our system of maps. Our choice should be seen as another piece of whimsy.
