Biography: 

Shreve MacKenzie is Quentin Compson's Harvard University roommate. He is Canadian, and Quentin thinks other students speculate that the two have a homosexual relationship. There is no clear evidence of that in the text, but he is very concerned about Quentin's well-being, for example offering to return to the campus with Quentin after the fight with Gerald Bland. He does not, however, suspect that Quentin is planning to commit suicide. As Quentin's roommate he is a major character in the later novel Absalom, Absalom! (1936).
