  1. Initially, the ending of the story “Burn the barn” can be interpreted in different ways. The first option: “burning the barn” means killing a girl (and all the girls who came before her). I'm leaning towards this option. The description of the main character is very similar to an abandoned barn somewhere in the field (lonely, not tied to anything and taede). Plus, her man is very secretive. Plus their strange relationship. Well, krch is easy to think of.

    The second option: a banal parting, which is associated with the burning of a barn for a man. Burn bridges and stuff.

    A clear, indistinct ending in Haruki Murakami's novels and short stories is something out of the realm of science fiction) “Norwegian Forest”, for example, but this is the exception that confirms the rule.

    So everyone can explain the endings of such stories as they want. Which develops your imagination quite well, by the way)

  2. Burning greenhouses is a kind of burning your old cargo that keeps you going. Whether it's beliefs, hopes, principles, or real people. Burning is breaking the connection with the “shed”.�


  3. well, look, first of all, the girl is most likely alive,because in the last scene the hero called them to a meeting of the three of them,and the major, when he arrived, really thought that the girl would be, that is, he was sure that she was alive, otherwise he would not have come

    There the point is, the girl was depressed, as they say at the beginning, in the scene with the stone in the cafe, more precisely, the major says that she has a stone in her soul because of which she can not enjoy life, and the lack of joys of life is the main manifestation of depression, besides, her family does not care about her, because she almost died as a child, In psychology, such parents have some name, I don't remember what, but I know that having such relatives is a huge blow to the psyche.

    In general, I think by burning greenhouses, he meant what we call “getting the girl out of the village and the village out of the girl” only with the Korean mentality, there's not everything so simple with this, given the echoes of the Korean War, especially in the older generation, which is shown to us through the violent father GG who went and through the girl's mother, who

    Thus, major tried for some reason to improve her life(pacifist pancake) and helped to roll up to GG, but since that stone with hay in his head instead of brains, he did not notice any hints,and in general behaved with major like a subordinate villager with the chairman, namely,he constantly bowed,could not ask anything, say,never stood on his own, in short, stump stump.

    As a result,most likely the girl just ran away as far as possible to forget it all like a bad dream,and everything is fine with her,but the boy,who does not have a particularly subtle perception, thought about the worst,and it broke through, although there was no point in it, he just killed a person and ruined his life.The end.
