Biography: 

Though this anonymous "youth" mentioned only in one paragraph, a number of intriguing details are attached to him. Despite his blue-collar origin, Belle Mitchell decides to "make a poet" of him, sending him to New Orleans presumably as part of that process. Here the similarities with William Faulkner's biography stop; a "conscientious objector," the start of the war prompts him to move to Texas where he "now serve[s] in a reportorial capacity" (181-82).
