Description: 

The Mississippi State Insane Asylum - referred to simply as "Jackson" in the novel - was located in the city of Jackson until 1935. At the end of Darl's last section in the novel he either is or is imagining himself there: "in a cage in Jackson where, his grimed hands lying light in the quiet interstices, looking out he foams" (254).
