Biography: 

Although "the townspeople" as an entity plays a smaller role in The Sound and the Fury than in many other Yoknapatawpha texts, occasionally the narrative does indicate their presence. This is the most true In Jason's section, which is not surprising given his concern with his family's reputation and place in the eyes of those townspeople. Among the groups he mentions or refers to are the men who apparently gathered in Jefferson the previous Christmas to shoot pigeons who were roosting in and fouling the clocks in the courthouse (247).
