Oxford is the real town in Mississippi where Faulkner lived and wrote for most of his life, and the original on which much of his fictional "Jefferson" is based. It is the home of the University of Mississippi. Will Varner tells Labove (who attends the University and plays on its football team) that "it aint but forty miles to Oxford" from Frenchman's Bend (118).
