  • Barn Burning Literary Analysis

    Introduction to Literary Analysis ENG1005A Breaking Free William Faulkner’s story “Barn Burning” seems just to be about an oppressive father and a son who is in the grips of that oppression. I think Faulkner explores at least one important philosophical question in this story where he asks at what point should a person make a choice between what his parent(s) and/or family believes and his own values? The main character and protagonist in this story is a boy named Colonel Sartoris, who is nicknamed Sarty

    I believe character is the component of all pieces of one’s personality that affect others and the world in a positive way. Character should be free from selfishness, because if you are only maintaining what appears to be “good character” in the hopes of boosting your own goals, that is not really character at all. I believe that I possess a strong character that strives to improve the lives of those around me. The main pieces that make up my character are faith, courage, and the desire to improve

    1 A Strong Bond The theme in “Barn Burning” by William Faulkner revolved around the strong bond of a family. The main character has to make a decision between what is right and wrong. This drives a wedge between him and his family. The rest of the family believes that blood is thicker than water and that you should stick with your own kin. In the story the strong bond of a family causes conflicts within the main character. Faulkner starts “Barn Burning” with a view of a small courthouse.
