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. The father’s character is shown to be self-serving, as well as a person that is full of rage and violence. Even his most noble of actions, fighting in the war, is shown to be an action to gain him personal profit.

Against Jocasta’s suggestions, he is persistent in finding out who his father and mother were. When he does, he is dismally torn to shreds. Even if he didn’t mean to kill his father and have children with his mother, it proves to be immoral and wrong even in today’s standards. Because of his strong emotions of self-hatred, he inflicted much pain unto himself so as to never have to see the world again, therefore proving he suffers both physically and mentally.

He was the man of the house and he was a great leader before times start getting hard and once things started to get hard he walked out on us and didn’t come back and that showed me he couldn’t handle pressure and he failed as a
Eventually I would have to work with them in order to win the game. My coaches would always say that, “we won as a team and lost as a team” which, to me, meant that no matter how well I performed individually, it always takes a team to win or lose. That lesson has become even more real as I have served in the military these past two years. Failure to work as a team can get someone hurt or even
