As I Lay Dying Essay One may believe that Darl Bundren from the book As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner is crazy But another may believe that Darl is sane It is up to the readers discretion to decide this But one should hope that everyone believes that Darl is sane Although there are many reasons for both there are more for the argument that he is sane Darl does some arguably insane thing in this story but he does have reasons for doing them For example one may consider Darl crazy because he put Cashs injured leg in a cement cast But in actuality Darl did this for the reason of helping Cash There was really nothing that insane about it Obviously Darl is not a doctor so he did the best he knew to do Another thing one may consider Darl insane for is the fact that he burnt down the Gillespie barn while his mothers coffin was still in it Althought this may seem insane he did it for sane motives One would expect that Darl would have had enough of his family being embarrassed by dragging around their mother Addie in a coffin with breathing wholes in it for several days Also everywhere the coffin went it was followed by an awful stench that was smelt for miles And to add onto the bad image they were also carting around their brother Cash on te same cart as the coffin Darl may have over-reacted a little by burning down the barn but he had reasonable motives for doing so He thought that if he just destroyed his mothers coffin and remains it would end the whole nightmare and allow them to go home In the first place there are not really any reasons for the family wanting to make the journey The only reason they are making the journey is to get the money and valuables After all
