Description: 

Located in Charlottesville, the University of Virginia was about a century old when Gowan Stevens went there. The narrative's attitude toward the school seems satiric. Gowan boasts inordinately about how at Virginia "they had taught him how to drink like a gentleman" (57), but in the novel he does a very bad job of holding his liquor, and unchivalrously abandons a woman at the Old Frenchman place.
