This quote supports the thesis because the narrator cares enough to premeditate his murder. He also believes that he is slick enough to get away with the crime without the old man knowing

In this aspect, Perry tries to show that he is not guilty of the crime because he could not control his instincts. Perry’s sister, Barbara viewpoint is that if any person kills somebody and had the intent and you know you have done something wrong, you are guilty and should take responsibility for your actions. Barbara states “Your letter implies that the blame of all your problems is that of someone else, but never you. I do admit that you are intelligent, and your vocabulary is excellent, and I do feel you can do anything you decide to do and do it well but what exactly, so you want to and are you willing to work and make an honest effort to attain whatever it is you choose to do?

Experience: I had to read Faulkner’s “Barn Burning” twice to fully experience the work. The first time I read the story, my emotions were centered on how I felt about the actions of the father. I found the father’s calloused, stiff, and emotionless attitude toward his young son and the rest of his family disgusting.

Even his most noble of actions, fighting in the war, is shown to be an action to gain him personal profit.

For him, a decision needs to be made, and there are really only two choices available for him.
