Churches South of Jefferson (Location Key)


While Jason chases his money and his niece down the road to Mottson in The Sound and the Fury, "from time to time he passed churches" that are described as "unpainted frame buildings with sheet iron steeples, surrounded by tethered teams and shabby motor cars" (306). Presumably the somewhat scriptural structure of the sentence - "from time to time he passed" - is meant to call attention to the fact that, on this Easter Sunday, the people who have gone inside these churches are seeking eternity, and perhaps finding it for themselves, while Jason is looking for his salvation in the money he's chasing - and won't find.
