Character Analysis of Sarty in “Barn Burning” by William
Faulkner

Colonel
Sartoris Snopes (Sarty) is the hero of the story “Barn Burning,” by William
Faulkner. He is a ten-year-old boy who can take his own decision. In the
starting of the story, he seems to be scared and hungry. Sarty is constantly
disturbed by fear, grief, and despair, and he know that to get free from these
hard emotions he needs to search for peace. Abner, his father forces him to
burn barn and do not want him to tell the truth afterward. As Sarty is first
introduced in the story it seems as if it was not the first time when Abner is
called to the court, though we do not know whether Sarty has witnessed or not. By
spending most of his time in the listening to the court proceeding he feels that
he should speak truth and help in people getting justice. He realizes that
Burning Barn of other people is not good he is destroying someone’s hard work and
money which they have gather for their family welfare. He does not want to lie in
the court room that he was not the part of his father’s plan of burning barns. Being
mature he knows that if he helps his father in burning barns, or lie about it
in in the court, he is also guilty. Sarty seems to have a strong sense of duty
to his community. In the scene where Abner tells Lennie to hold Sarty. He
threatens his mother to let him go otherwise he would hit her, although he
knows that hitting his mother is wrong, he thinks that burning de Spain barn is
worse. He knows that his father is brave, and everyone should remember him but
not by the name “Barn Burner”. He neither wants to betray his father nor break
his mother’s hurt, but he also knows that he can make his own decision. Being
only ten-year-old he has developed a mind an adult.
