A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍nalyze in detail the character and life-circumstances of the boy Sarty in Faulkner’s “Barn Burning.” What kinds of choices does Sarty face in relation to the behavior and moral qualities of his father, Abner Snopes? At what point in the sequence of main events does Sarty‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ decide to choose “right action” over loyalty to family? In your opinion, how does Sarty succeed in understanding the qualities of “good” and “bad” (or good and evil), despite his lack of education and despite his upbringing in extreme poverty, physical abuse, and ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍emotional distress?
