Description: 

The sawmill is where Rider works and where much of the stationary action of the story takes place, although we do not get much of a feel for it the first time Rider appears there. The second time Rider enters he observes the “mute soaring of the moon-blond lumber stacks, standing in the middle of the now unimpeded shadow, . . . the boiler shed all quiet and blanched in the moon,” and he crosses the clearing, “entering the boiler shed and through it, crossing the junctureless trepan of time’s back-loop to the door of the tool-room, the faint glow of the lantern beyond the plank-joins, the surge and fall of a shadow between the light and the wall, the mutter of voices, the mute click and scutter of the dice” (250).
