This is for any general discussion of grist mills as a farm implement. JB

2587 Husbandry Agriculture

Any part of a text related to the care and breeding of animals. The immediate context for this is on an actual farm, as for example Mink's attempt to breed his cow with a local bull. It also extends out to any knowledge of animals for the purposes of domestication or labor. For example, Lucius Priest being able to identify a horse as "three-quarters-bred" in The Reivers, though the horse itself is not on a farm. JB

3203 Share-cropping|Tenantry Agriculture

There are significant differences between "share-cropping" and "tenant farming" in reality. "Tenants" typically furnished their own farming tools and livestock, and had at least a measure of control over what crops they planted on land they rented from a landlord; "share-croppers" typically only contributed their own labor, with the landlord dictating what they would raise and providing the animals and tools they used. But in his fiction Faulkner does not maintain this distinction, using the terms as essentially synonymous. SR

2583 Race Alcohol

These are racial issues specifically related to alcohol. For example, Minnie in The Reivers declines to drink with too many white people at once (113). There are also other issues around the production, sale, and consumption of alcohol that cut across racial lines. I thought it was more appropriate to place this here rather than in the race category within cultural issues, as that is already getting full, and becomes the alcohol predominates here. JB

2767 Laws Alcohol

This keyword covers any laws and regulations regarding the production, sale, or consumption of alcohol. This covers "Blue Laws", bootlegging, and other legal frameworks. The reason for putting this under Alcohol and not crime was that this is not to highlight any specific law or that someone has even committed a crime, but rather the legal structure affirms or contradicts cultural norms around alcohol. JB

2774 Teetotaling Alcohol

Teetotaling as a cultural issue or as a personal moral or habitual choice. This is different than "teetotaler" under character, which is the defining character trait of that person. The example here is Minnie in The Reivers who works in a brothel, but is a teetotaler because she is a "damn christian scientist or republican or something" (153). In this sense, it is not her defining character trait. JB
