Dialect in “As I Lay Dying”

“Durn that road.  And it fixing to rain, too. I can stand here and same as see it with second-sigh, a-shutting down behind them like a wall, shutting down betwixt them and my given promise. I do the best I can, much as I can get my mind on anything, but durn them boys.” (35)
