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

For in fact by the time Faulkner put the words to paper in 1924, man had done a

oppression. But by as early as 1929, Faulkner's intense sensitivity to the natural
world around him and deepening concern for the environmental degradation of
his home state ...

endproduct of a process of psychological conditioning that practically eliminates
