William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying originally takes place in the 1930’s in the fictional Mississippi county of Yoknapatawpha. Throughout the novel, though, the setting moves between the city of Jefferson and Bundren 's household. Even though the majority of the novel takes place on the outskirts of a momentous city, the region itself is found to be exceptionally rural. The Burden’s household itself is described as having been composed of “rough logs” with long ago missing “chinking. The description of the house directs the reader to believe it is hand built and very small, containing a solitary window and taking mere four strides to cross the floor.
Kitchens have gone through a major change from past few centuries. Earlier in 18th century, kitchens were not considered as an important area in a house. People used to cook in the same room they lived. There was no special space for it. People used to cook food over an open fire.
The Wabash County Jail has a smaller office that can easily be accessed. While at the Miami County Jail, the Control Office is under 24 hour duty. There is always someone in the office and it is in lock down 24/7.

“Blind forehead” is a use of personification, by describing the face of the outer of the building as a human face. A blind face could suggest that the building bore no windows, giving the reader the impression that there is no one living inside. “Bore in every feature” emphasises the amount of damage that has been done to the building, and gives us the image of a broken down, jilted building. “Discoloured wall” tells us that the wall hasn’t been painted, and has been left alone for a long time. This furthers our image of an abandoned building.
The drawing room curtains were open, and I saw that the room was empty.” (pg. 144) EXPLANATION: While Tom attempts to be as upstanding and attractive as his house, somehow, there is always a piece missing.

In “The Yellow Wallpaper” the setting is only available to the audience through what the main character describes in her journal. The main character extensively describes the present 19th century estate where she lives, her bedroom and the bedroom’s wallpaper. The main character’s mental state is reflected by the setting. “(The house) is quite alone standing well back from the road, quite three miles from the village. It makes me think of English places that you read about, for there are hedges and walls and gates.” The estate is isolated from the road and from society.
Owing to military concerns and Empire’s consolidation the Agra Fort (1565-71), is noteworthy for its impenetrable 70 ft high walls, its bastions, moat and its colossal Delhi Gate/Hathi pol. The main Delhi Gate and walls, Asher says were meant to reflect the patron’s imperial power. Brown says the fort is also noteworthy for its smooth red sandstone exterior masonry. The palace plan follows typical Islamic style as do all other mughal palaces, since various sections of the palace are separated by large courtyards and gardens, unlike Rajput palaces which were internally connected by corridors. An extant building here from Akbar’s period is the Jahangiri Mahal.
