1548 Environment Natural Wilderness

I'm wondering how this is different from "woods" and if they two terms might need to be meshed into one. Are woods more domestic or something? LW
I'm using wilderness when it is directly discussed in the text as a presence, a living thing as in GDM (i.e., "the wilderness breathed again" (174)) JJ

4910 Themes and Motifs Recurring Tropes Year the stars fell

Added to refer to Faulkner's reference in at least two texts to 1833, "the year the stars fell" (in Appendix and in Go Down, Moses). Seems to refer to an actual historical event of a massive meteor shower that year which many interpreted as an omen, possibly even of end of times. Here is one article referencing the event: https://www.ancestry.com/contextux/historicalinsights/night-stars-fell-m.... JBP
