Chapter 17 (Darl is still out in the wagon with Jewel, yet he’s narrating what goes on at home.) Cash continues to labor over the coffin, despite buckets of rainfall. Anse is by his side but pretty much useless. They pitch a make-shift tent with Dewey Dell’s raincoat over the lantern. Instead of covering his son, Anse uses Jewel’s raincoat to protect himself from rain. Vernon and Cora arrive. Vernon helps Cash into the sunrise until the coffin is complete. Vernon, Anse, Cash, and Peabody carry the finished coffin into Addie’s room. They walk gingerly, as though the coffin were asleep. Darl contemplates how hard it is to know whether you are alive or not when you’re falling asleep. He guesses that Jewel doesn’t have these problems, because he never asks himself difficult questions about his own existence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
