A Rose For Emily and Other Short Stories

What is the point of view of the italicized passages? What do readers learn from them? Do they create irony? How would the story have been different without these passages?

. “Barn Burning” includes a great deal of dialogue. How would you characterize the level of diction of this dialogue? What information about various characters does it provide?

The italicized passages are actually Sarty's thoughts; they make the story seem genuine, and they also allow us a glimpse of Sarty's inner feelings, which are filled with turmoil.
