Cambridge Inset: Post Office (Location Key)


Quentin Compson goes to two different post offices in the course of his section in The Sound and the Fury. This is the one in Cambridge, apparently fairly close to Harvard. He goes there early in his day, in part because he's looking for Deacon but mainly to buy stamps and mail a letter, presumably his suicide note, to his father (82). The second post office is in the town Quentin travels to later in the day. Quentin goes there looking for Anse, because a man at the livery stable "said to look at the postoffice" (130; see the location "Town Center").
