Description: 

The barber shop in Jefferson figures as a location in a number of the Yoknapatawpha fictions, where it is invariably depicted as an all-male enclave. Although not made explicit, perhaps that association is meant to be present when in The Sound and the Fury it is outside the barbershop where Quentin runs into Dalton Ames. Ames is "going into" it (158). Quentin waits for him outside, and when Ames comes out Quentin says he needs to see him.
