After Abner has tasked Sarty to fetch kerosine for the barn burning, Sarty thinks to himself, “I could run on and on and never look back, never need to see his [Abner’s] face again” (Faulkner 198). In this quote, Sarty contemplates running away because he hates abiding by his dad’s rules, which, again, shows the strained relationship between Abner and Sarty. By running away, Sarty would go directly against Abner’s lesson of being loyal to blood. Virginia C.

In my opinion this was a tragedy in itself but heroic at the same time because John sacrificed himself to save his wife and his name from being branded as witchery.

Keeps being saved” (Beah 52).

He killed bob because he thought that Ponyboy was going to get killed, and he jumped into that church, risking his life to save many children 's lives.
