  • William Faulkner - 830 words
    William Faulkner wrote many stories depicting society during the early twentieth century. In his stories Barn Burning and A Rose for Emily, Faulkner discusses how rich whites mistreat the tenant farmers who in turn abuse the blacks, tells about Colonel Sartoris Snopess dilemma when his father wants him to lie, and explains how Emily was mistreated by men. Through his works, Faulkner discusses society of the pre-Depression era by explaining the class distinction, adulteration of morals, and subordination of women in order to show the corruption of the American dream. In Barn Burning, Faulkner places an emphasis on the separation of social classes. Abner Scopes, a white tenant farmer, takes on ...

  • William Faulkner - 763 words
    Faulkner, William (1897-1962), American novelist, known for his epic portrayal, in some 20 novels, of the tragic conflict between the old and the new South. Faulkner's complex plots and narrative style alienated many readers of his early works, but he was recognized later as one of the greatest American writers. Born in New Albany, Mississippi, Faulkner was raised in nearby Oxford as the oldest of four sons of an old-line southern family. In 1915 he dropped out of high school, which he detested, to work in his grandfather's bank. In World War I (1914-1918) he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force but never saw battle action. Back home in Oxford, he was admitted to the University of Mississippi ...

  • William Faulkner - 1,002 words
    William Cuthbert Falkner was born on September 25, 1897 in New Albany, Mississippi. He was the eldest of four brothers from Murry and Maud Butler Falkner (later in his life he restored the "u" to the family name). As a child William always had a strong interest in the arts. He enjoyed painting, writing poetry and other forms of art. During his elementary years William excelled and skipped the second grade (Helmster). However during his early teens he began to waiver and lost interest in school, which then sparked his interest in poetry, and short stories. As a young child Faulkner created a strong bond with a man named Phil Stone. With a common interest in literature, Stone encouraged Faulkn ...

  • William Faulkner - 1,366 words
    William Faulkner is viewed by many as America's greatest writer of prose fiction. He was born in New Albany, Mississippi, where he lived a life filled with good times as well as bad. However, despite bad times he would become known as a poet, a short story writer, and finally one of the greatest contemporary novelists of his time. William Faulkner's accomplishments resulted not only from his love and devotion to writing, but also from family, friends, and certain uncontrollable events. William Faulkner's life is an astonishing accomplishment; however, it is crucial to explore his life prior to his fixated writing career (Mack 1794-1798). In 1905, Faulkner entered the first grade at the tende ...

  • A Critical Analysis Of "a Rose For Emily" - William Faulkner (grade B3) - 1,163 words
    A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner tells the story of an unconventional spinster ; Emily Grierson and her eccentric relationships with her father, lover, and the town of Jefferson. The story is told by an unknown Narrator who is clearly a town resident (when Miss Emily died, our whole town went to her funeral..), and the story unfurls in a non-chronological order. We are given the ending first, we know Miss Emily Grierson is already dead when the story begins, but we also know the story is about her. I believe this technique is used to create empathy for the character of Emily because you only see her through the eyes of the people of Jefferson, who would often talk about her behind her ba ...

  • A Critical Analysis Of "a Rose For Emily" - William Faulkner (grade B3) - 1,154 words
    ... to those angels in coloured church windows- sort of tragic and serene. It gave me the image of someone with a child-like innocence who clearly was in dire need of some help, she sounds very lost. The other thing that grabs me about this description is the use of the word angel which I find ironic considering that we later find out that she keeps a corpse locked away in an upstairs room. Its safe to maybe say that she is an Angel of death. The other character that keeps coming up in this story, and seems to have an eerie presence, is the Negro slave; Tobe . Hes mentioned in the first paragraph (..old man-servant - a combined gardener and cook) which to me indicates that he has a key part ...

  • Character Analysis From Faulkner's Sound And The Fury - 548 words
    Quentin is totally obsessed and consumed by time. From his constant references to shadows, to his grandfathers watch, to the various clocks and other timepieces denoted in the section, Quentin is completely consumed by his reflections concerning time. It is this infatuation that drives Quentin mad. His madness stems from his personal feelings on time, and his fathers cynical outlook on time and life in general. This section begins with Quentin waking in his dorm room to the sun coming through the shades of the window. He knows immediately, just from gauging the shadow cask from the drapes, that it is between seven and eight oclock: When the shadow of the sash appeared on the curtains it was ...

  • A Review Of William Faulkner's "a Rose For Emily" - 626 words
    In "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner, we see how past events effect the main character Miss Emily, especially her mental state. She seems to live in a sort of fantasy world where death has no real meaning. Miss Emily refuses to accept or even recognize, the death of her father or that of Colonel Satoris. She does not want to acknowledge the fact that the world around her was changing therefore Miss Emily surrounds herself with death. What Faulkner tries to state in this story is that you should not let death overpower your life. A person should try and let go of their beloved ones after they have passed away. He also tries to state is to always expect the unexpected, like when Miss Emil ...

  • Critical Analysis Of "barn Burning" By Faulkner - 893 words
    At first glance, the story Barn Burning seems just to be about a tyrannical father and a son who is in the grips of that tyranny. I think Faulkner explores at least one important philosophical question in this story were he asks at what point should a person make a choice between what his parent(s) and / or family believes and his own values? The main character and protagonist in this story is a boy named Colonel Sartoris. In this story, Sarty is faced with the decision of either going along with the views and actions of his morally challenged father or asserting his own morality and individuality by running away and leaving his family and his pain behind. The antagonist in the story is Abne ...

  • Symbolism In "a Rose For Emily" By Faulkner - 864 words
    William Faulkners A Rose for Emily is a wonderful short story that begins with the funeral of the main character, Emily Grierson. Faulkner uses an anonymous narrator that is considered to be the voice of the town and tells the story out of chronological order. The story basically uses the life of Emily Grierson as an allegory for the changes in the post-bellum South after the Civil War. Through the use of a series of symbols, such as Emilys house, hair, clothing, and even Emilys rose, Faulkner illustrates the collapse of the post-bellum South. The characteristics of Miss Emilys house symbolize her appearance as she becomes decrepit with time and neglect. The house had once been white, decor ...

  • Literary Technique Explored In Faulkner's "a Rose For Emily" - 613 words
    In order for a story to take shape, one of the main ingredients is the plot. An author must figure out where the story is going to take the reader. In A Rose For Emily, William Faulkner uses in medias res, flashback, and foreshadowing to tell the story of a heartbroken and disenchanted woman. In medias res (or in the midst of things) the author can start the story in any place the he or she wants. In this case, Faulkner starts the story at the death of Ms. Emily. When Miss Emily Grierson died, the whole town went to the funeral (87). Throughout the story Faulkner uses in medias res; for the second example of this the author jumps from the last years of her life to when Ms. Emily was a youn ...

  • William Faulkner: The Author And His Times - 1,899 words
    William Faulkner once said that The Sound and the Fury began with a picture in his mind. Four children, a girl and three boys, are playing in a stream near their house. They have been told to stay outdoors, although they don't know why. In fact, their grandmother, who has been very sick, has died, and the grownups are holding a funeral. The girl, more adventurous than her brothers, climbs a tree to catch a better view of what's going on in the house. Watching her from below, the boys notice that she has gotten her underpants muddy. Why was that image--which appears in Benjy's section of The Sound and the Fury-so vivid to Faulkner? Perhaps it reminded him of an important incident in his own l ...

  • Mark Twain - 1,447 words
    MARK TWAIN a.k.a. Samuel Langhorne Clemens "Mark Twain, which is a pseudonym for Samuel Langhorne Clemens, was born in 1835, and died in 1910. He was an american writer and humorist. Maybe one of the reasons Twain will be remembered is because his writings contained morals and positive views. Because Twain's writing is so descriptive, people look to his books for realistic interpretations of places, for his memorable characters, and his ability to describe his hatred for hypocrisy and oppression. HE believed he could write. Most authors relied on other people and what they said, but because Twain was so solitary, he made himself so successful. 1" "When he was younger, his family moved.

  • As I Lay Dying - 814 words
    Adam Cooper Cooper 1 In one of William Faulkner's greatest novels, As I lay Dying, the character's selfishness is revealed. As I Lay Dying is a detailed account of the Bundren's family trek across Mississippi to bury Addie, their wife and mother. As Addie is dying, all the characters go through a different state of emotions, all of which are explained in fifty-nine chapters. An analysis of William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying reveals the importance of goals, mishaps, and characters as they look on the death of Addie. During the initial stage after Addie's death three main goals are exposed: burying her, getting new teeth for Anse, and getting an abortion for Dewey Dell. According to George Wolf ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 1,488 words
    "The man himself lay in the bed" Reading this atypical piece of work entitled "A Rose for Emily", written by William Faulkner encourages a sense of thrill and stimulation within. Since Mr. Faulkner resided in Mississippi most of his writings reflect his home state, as does "A Rose for Emily". The first person minor point of view is being told by the townspeople. The main character, Miss Emily, in this short gothic story that took place during the early 1900 hundreds demonstrated a conflict she was having with herself. I think that it is well known that our parents are the backbone to each person's existence. Knowing this, William Faulkner managed to include through the events in the plot an ...

  • Samuel Clemens Mark Twain - 1,072 words
    Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), American writer and humorist, whose best work is characterized by broad, often irreverent humor or biting social satire. Twain's writing is also known for realism of place and language, memorable characters, and hatred of hypocrisy and oppression. Born in Florida, Missouri, Clemens moved with his family to Hannibal, Missouri, a port on the Mississippi River, when he was four years old. There he received a public school education. After the death of his father in 1847, Clemens was apprenticed to two Hannibal printers, and in 1851 he began setting type for and contributing sketches to his brother Orion's Hannibal Journal. Subsequently he worked as a printe ...

  • Childhood In Color Purple - 1,272 words
    Reminisce of the days of being a child. What comes to mind? Romping through the forest, connected to nature? Feeling free and innocent? Basically, what society views childhood to be? Well, guess what; childhood can be hell! Unfortunately, many children have horrible childhoods, suffering from abusive parents. Bad childhood stems from bad parents. Every ten seconds go by, and a parent abuses his child. Acts of rebellion, loss of self-esteem, lack of confidence-all factors are the results from a child being abused. Sadly, sometimes society ignores that aspect. Luckily, literature differs from other mediums in that it can express thoughts and emotional more effectively. Alice Walker's The Color ...

  • A Perspective Look At A Rose For Emily - 1,514 words
    A Perspective Look at A Rose for Emily Thesis: As any reader can see, A Rose for Emily is one of the most authentic short stories by Faulkner. His use of characterization, narration, foreshadowing, and symbolism are four key factors to why Faulkners work is idealistic to all readers. The works of William Faulkner have had positive effects on readers throughout his career. Local legends and gossip trigger the main focus of his stories. Considering that Faulkner grew up in Mississippi, he was very familiar with the ways of the South. This award winning author has been praised by many critics for his ability and unique style of writing. One of Faulkners most popular works, which also was his fi ...

  • Light In August - 656 words
    Light in August by William Faulkner is a story about three characters lives-Joe Christmas, Lena Grove, and Rev. Gail Hightower- blended together to show the consistent struggles. A theme of Light in August, a mans past experiences mold his present and future, is concentrated on Joe Christmas and his racial identity. Joe Christmas is perhaps the most controversial character in Light in August. He is labeled as a victim because of his plights with Doc Hines, the orphanage, his adoptive father, Simon McEachern, and his waitress girlfriend Bobbie Allen. At every major mile stone in Christmass life he was put down, shut out, or beaten by people that should have cared about him. His racial grandfa ...
