Jobaker's Hut (Location Key)

Code: 
521
Description: 

In "The Old People" as the story first appeared Jobaker's "foul little shack" (204) is located five miles from the unnamed narrator's family's plantation; in "The Old People" as the story appeared in Go Down, Moses, this "foul little shack" is the same distance away from the McCaslin plantation (163). In other words, this is another instance of Faulkner moving parts of his world around to fit the needs of different stories. In both locations the hut stands in the fork of a creek, and in both texts it is destroyed by fire.
