Description: 

Jackson, the capitol of Mississippi, figures in the novel in several ways. It is the site of the state legislature to which Clarence Egglestone Snopes is elected. Gavin Stevens' "classmate" has a plantation near Jackson (425). And "the asylum" - that is, the Mississippi State Insane Asylum - to which Mink's lawyer argues Mink should be sent is located there (51).
