Biography: 

A member of the clan of Snopeses that plays such a prominent role in the Yoknapatawpha fictions, I.O. Snopes is a "harried" man. Eternally greedy, he seeks every opportunity to enrich himself, even through dubious and illegal schemes. In Flags in the Dust, Flem Snopes brings I.O. to Jefferson to run the restaurant. In the first two volumes of the Snopes trilogy - The Hamlet (1940) and The Town - Faulkner develops his character in ways that could not be predicted from the I.O. who appears in this story.
