Description: 

Memphis, Tennessee, is the closest city to Yoknapatawpha, whose inhabitants go there for a variety of reasons in many of Faulkner's fictions, though often to misbehave in ways they can't in Jefferson. In The Hamlet, for example, Labove goes there with his classmates after passing the bar and immediately wants to know "how to find a brothel" (130). Ratliff, on the other hand, goes there both on business and to have an operation.
