In The Sound and the Fury Jason rages against the "every dam drummer" that comes to Jefferson, all of whom he imagines have sexual relations with his niece, Quentin (239). "Drummer" is an archaic term for a salesman who travels from town to town. We know that Miss Quentin is sexually active, though these specific partners are products of Jason's imagination.
