Description: 

In this story, Major de Spain's hunting camp includes a "kitchen" that, in the fashion of many of the larger residences in Yoknapatawpha, is in a separate building (71): when Ratliff tries to summon Ash, the black servant who is in charge of the kitchen, he goes "to the door" of the camp itself, and yells "towards the kitchen" (74). Like other such kitchens, this one is a racially defined space, the place where the story's black characters can usually be found when they are not serving the white men in the hunting party.
