Short Story #254: That Evening Sun by William Faulkner
Title: That Evening Sun
Author: William Faulkner
ReflectionThere's a fascinating range of interactions going on within this story and Faulkner stacks them so well so that it's clear how the adults interact with one another and then interact in front of and through the children. Their obliviousness contrast with the various concerns of the adults from racial tension, prostitution, violence, etc contrasts how children can be ignorant while simultaneously absorbing the broader messages of class and race within a subculture.
