2295 Relationships Interracial Domestic

This term denotes significant moments in interracial relationships within the domestic sphere. This is outside of the more binary Master-Slave or Master-Servant relationship. For example, the African-American servants in the Priest household feel little compunction about yelling at Boon, a white man. This term therefore captures those moments in which domestic labor did not cut along distinctly racial lines, although they do have a racial charge. JB

This is for the occasions when Faulkner uses a series of dots as a feature of his prose - i.e. ". . ." or ". . . . . ." We can't call these dots ellipses, because they do not represent anything being left out of the text. The most disconcerting use of this technique is in "Miss Zilphia Gant." SR
