to the old man, and he seems to be portrayed as the caring one who is more educated and mature. For  example, whenever the younger waiter approaches the old man and is annoyed he wont leave he forces him  to leave by saying “Finished. No more tonight. Close now.” He describes this as being stupid and this leads  me to believe this is how he himself feels about the young waiter and his actions. 2. Suppose that  instead of “Barn Burning,” Faulkner had written another  story told by Abner Snopes in the first person? Why would such a story  need a style different from that of “Barn Burning”? 3. Drawing from either “Barn Burning” or “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place”  describe which adjectives best describe the general tone of the story: calm,  amused disinterested, scornful, marveling, excited, impassioned, peaceful?  Explain why you think the adjectives (or others that you might use) best  describe the short story and point to passages in the text that support your  claim.

With “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place” the adjectives are broad because we are reading it  to be scornful because of the actions of the young waiter and impassioned however, if  you look at the story from the authors writing it seems almost amusing because he  never addresses the seriousness of the old man trying to kill himself and the young

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
