Description: 

Courthouse Square is at the center of Jefferson, and of Yoknapatawpha, and of much of what happens in Faulkner's fictions. In Digital Yoknapatawpha, we also use it as the default location for events in town that cannot otherwise be identified with a place, so here it also serves as the "Location" when the narrative tells us that Paul leaves town, and again when Elly "leaves home" to call him on the telephone (214).
