III • THE NATURAL WORLD AS SYMBOL In the last paragraph of the interview
with Jean Stein, Faulkner used three metaphors in referring to his mythical county
, Yoknapatawpha: he discovered that his "own little postage stamp of native soil"
was worth writing about, so, he said, "I created a cosmos of my own." The last
metaphor is a kind of macrocosm version of the microcosm in the first one: "I like

and creatively contested writers in English worldwide. ... to tyrannical political
states and varieties of elite rule over minorities, including reactionary ones based
