Nancy's Cabin (Location Key)

Nancy's cabin appears only once in Faulkner's fiction. It is down the lane from the Compson house, across a ditch and on the other side of a fence that must be stooped through to pass. It is protected by a door with a wooden bar and warmed by a small hearth, before which a chair sits. It has a notable smell, at times mysterious and other times coming from the wick of a globular lamp. There is a table that on one occasion held a bloody hog bone.
