Description: 

Whitfield's section of the narrative begins with his account of the night he spent "wrestling with Satan" (177). The only clue we have to the earthly location of this struggle is that it lies on the far side of the river from the Bundrens' house. Our decision to set it in the church where he is the preacher in the short story "Shingles for the Lord" is speculative.
