Tull's narration also conveys some important factual information. We find out that the bridge is  washed out, necessitating a longer trip down the river that will require extra time. We find out that  Addie has been in the coffin three days before Darl and Jewel get back with the wagon. And in a hot  Mississippi July rainy spell, this is a long time to have a dead body above ground. We receive more  facts about the perfection with which the coffin was built.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
