...Sartys final, climactic decision to break away from his father rule is seen as proof of his own ultimate moral correctness against the demonic qualities of Ab (pg. 28).” In conclusion, Faulker adopts a number of literary devices in constructing Barn Burning. As Jelliffe attests, his use of the dual perspectives of the boy gives insight into his moral dilemma concerning his father. Ferguson shows us that the use of ‘stiff’ is a leitmotif that adds insight into the father’s personal character. And finally, Zender speaks of the moral journey and change Sartoris makes throughout the story. Works Cited Ferguson, James. Faulkners Barn Burning. Southern...

...dilemma by running, by stopping the barn burning but by doing nothing else that might cause his father to be imprisoned or harmed. This moral battle shows that Sarty is learning the right lessons by avoiding his fathers influence. Karen Bernardo summarizes, “It would be easy to say that Sartoris, in the end, must make a choice between right and wrong, between the "peace and dignity" represented by the de Spains with the squalor and misery of the Snopes family, but it is more than that. At the story’s beginning, when Sarty was ready to testify that his father did not burn down that barn, he would have done it because a son’s job is to stick to his father. At the story’s end, he warns Major de...

...Barn Burning is a narrative about blood ties, but more particularly, how these ties influenced Sarty. The story explores the internal conflict and predicament that Sarty confronts.
