Biography: 

When in 1928 Benjy first moves to the gate in front of the Compson house, he refers to it as the place "where the girls passed with their booksatchels" (51). He may simply be remembering the girls who walked past over a decade ago, or more probably is referring to a new generation of girls who walk past his house in 1928. To him the girls, like the golfers with their "caddies," are part of the pattern by which he continually re-creates and tries to heal the pain associated with the loss so long ago of his "Caddy."
