His stories mostly, revolve around the darker themes of class, race and gender issues and Barn Burning is no exception. Faulkner has stick to his trademark style of formal writing induced by the long sentences and the poetic dialogues. He always considered himself a failed poet and incorporated his passion for poetry in his writings.

He did not look back.” (Shmoop 35-37).
