South Carolina (Location Key)

Code: 
804
Description: 

In The Sound and the Fury, Spoade is from South Carolina. In addition to the fact that according to Quentin he has "five names, including that of a present English ducal house" (91-92), his geographic heritage helps explain why Gerald Bland's mother feels obliged to associate her and her son with him. Apparently "South Carolina" could confer a kind of prestige on its sons, no matter where else they went - which may help explain why in the other fictions so many of the first families of Yoknapatawpha, like the Sartorises and the McCaslins, are from 'Carolina' - which has its own entry in the index.
