By the end of the story, do you think Sarty has any regrets or second thoughts about leaving? Dont you see he would? Because it was Tom-Tom on the cot; Tom-Tom, whom Turl believed to be at the mo- ment two miles away, waiting for Turl to come and take over from him at the power plant. I can't help it now. That his father could so deliberately soil the aristocratic house with horse manure is inconceivable to him. I reckon they'll be glad to have you use it. Warren did not take his hand.

“Barn Burning” by William Faulkner

Paul's face, her grandmother, the car, had disap- peared, vanished as though by magic; parallel with her eyes the shattered ends of white railing, the crumbling edge of the precipice where dust whispered and a faint gout of it hung like a toy balloon, rushed mutely skyward. Jest don't ask me to understand why. You want to see it? He never come over the table, he come around it, he was on me almost before I knowed it, so that I jest had time to jump back and whup out my pocket-knife and snap it open and hit one lick, and he hollered and jumped back and grabbed one hand with the other and stood there cussing and hollering. Now, what would you like for dinner? He didn't touch her now. Where if a car went through that little fence. But it was not going fast; it appeared rather to hang gently just above the earth until we saw that, beyond and beneath it, trees and earth in panorama were fleeing backward at dizzy speed, and then it tilted and shot skyward with a noise like a circular saw going into a white oak log. We must trust one another.

Even the sound of the car could not drown it out, until suddenly 222 The Village she realized what it was. The writer in question here, remember, went broke and saw all his books go out of circulation and was pretty much living on Hollywood money David Thomson called it a form of grant and it took Malcolm Cowley and several years' reflection to appreciate the moral sweep and tragic oomph of Yoknapatawpha County.

McLendon stopped in the floor and stared at her until she looked down. So then I changed my tone, like a fellow has to do to get anything outen a nigger. So, Sarty's full name epitomizes his internal conflict between his yearning for beauty and honor and justice, and his desire to be accepted by his family, especially his cruel, grim, mean-minded father.

Barn Burning by William Faulkner is a short story that explores a lot of themes in it. Style is what they can't teach you in English class but its what is retained and kept and what one is nourished by after the initial shock of the text wears off and you numb up and adjust to the various shallows and depths.

I just went on out and left him setting there, setting right still. They worked busily about the Negro as though he were a post, quiet, intent, getting in one another's way. Oh well, you can probably see I have a hankering to read this.
