Description: 

The "State University" where Gavin Stevens goes to learn law in this novel is almost certainly the same one he attended in Light in August: the University of Mississippi rather than Mississippi State (3). The University of Mississippi, of course, is in Oxford, Faulkner's home town and the place on which his imaginary Jefferson is closely based.
