2583 Cultural Issues Alcohol Race

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

2988 Cultural Issues Alcohol Sobriety
5334 Cultural Issues Alcohol Store-bought vs moonshine
2774 Cultural Issues Alcohol Teetotaling

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

4994 Cultural Issues Agriculture Household gardening
2587 Cultural Issues Agriculture Husbandry

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 Cultural Issues Agriculture Share-cropping|Tenantry

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

2940 Cultural Issues Age Rite of passage

Any challenge or ritualized moment in which a person goes from child to adult. The other option here is coming of age, but felt like a more passive, ambiguous movement over time, when what is meant here is someone having an active, singular moment in which he or she becomes an adult. For example, Lucius winning the horse race in The Reivers (274). JB

3826 Themes and Motifs Absence/Loss Losing vs never having

Added for when Quentin makes the observation, about a man who castrated himself, "It's not not having them. It's never to have had them." I believe similar ideas crop up elsewhere in Faulkner - distinguishing between having and losing, or never having in the first place. JBP
