Biography: 

When Lucas asks Roth to lend him the money to buy a metal detector, he invokes Roth's father as leverage: "Your paw would a lent me three hundred dollars is he was here" (227). We don't know if this is true, but Roth doesn't budge. When Faulkner incorporated Lucas and the Edmondses into the novel Go Down, Moses, he named Roth's father Zachary, and developed the relationship between him and Lucas - both as landlord and tenant, and as descendants of a common ancestor - very powerfully.
