William Faulkner's "Barn Burning" is a story of family loyalty verses social morality. This paper examines the techniques used by Faulkner, including symbolic imagery and dialect and speech styles instead of lengthy descriptions.
From the Paper:"There are several elements of symbolism in Faulkner's story. One that is repeated throughout his work is that of the description of the father, always "stiff and black" to symbolize the man's dark and sinister character and his unyielding personality. The first description comes near the beginning of the tale when Faulkner writes, "His father, stiff in his black Sunday coat donned not for the trial but for the moving" (Faulkner pp). In that sentence Faulkner conveys to his readers not only a physical description of the man, but his purpose."
