Description: 

Jackson is the capital of Mississippi, so Clarence Snopes lives there when the state senate is in session. It is also where Temple Drake is from, and where her father is a judge. At one of the tense moments during her ordeal at the Old Frenchman Place, she thinks of "her father sitting on the porch at home, his feet on the rail, watching a negro mow the lawn" (51).
