Description: 

The novel associates "Mexico" with lawlessness in two different ways. Chick Mallison says Byron Snopes "escaped to Mexico" after robbing Colonel Sartoris' Bank (113) - and later imagines Flem might do the same thing. And the mother of Byron's children, who seem completely untameable, is "a Jicarilla Apache squaw in Old Mexico" (379).
