Short Story #246: The Tall Men by William Faulkner
Title: The Tall Men
Author: William Faulkner
ReflectionThe commentary about how bureaucracy interferes with the living of lives and doing right is very prominent within this story. The contrast between the hard-working, well-meaning, and sincere McCallums and even the deputy looms large against the "investigator" who wants to perform to the letter of the law and not to the spirit of it.
