  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 442 words
    In William Faulkners short story, A Rose for Emily, obsession plays a key role in the developing personality of the protagonist, Emily Grierson. Because Emily was never allowed to be independent and self-sufficient growing up, she goes to great lengths to preserve companionship and deter her loneliness later on in life. Faulkner illustrates Emilys desire for company by focusing on her obsessive and psychotic tendencies. At the death of her father, Emily is thrown into a state of denial. She refuses to release his body to be buried because, in her own mind, she believes that he is actually not deceased. The day after her fathers death, the ladies of the neighborhood come to the Grierson home ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 375 words
    William Faulkners A Rose For Emily portrays a post-modern culture of the old south. More specific in this story, images of death are fashioned by Faulkners use of symbolism. However, in an unintentional and seemingly chronological way, death is symbolic within the past, present and future in the form of the stench, the house, and the arsenic. When anything becomes a stench, either rotting or decomposition are occurring. As many of the townsfolk observed, a stench arose from Ms. Emilys estate. The stench presented here is a phenomenal symbol for the death that has occurred. Little did the townsfolk suspect, but Ms. Emily had willingly killed her lover. Now with the aroma of death wafting thro ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 656 words
    William Faulkner stated that another sad and tragic manifestation of mans condition [is] in which he dreams and hopes, in which he is in conflict with himself or with his environment or with others (Faulkner 79-80). In A Rose for Emily, a young girl, Emily Grierson, faces a rather tragic life and undergoes conflict like that described by Faulkner. Much of Emilys conflict is internal and stems from her inability to let go of her past. This is seen through out Faulkners short tale in examples such as Emilys refusal to pay taxes and the murdering of Homer Barron. In 1894, the mayor of the town, Colonel Sartoris, remitted Emilys taxes. He created a story saying that her father had loaned money t ...

  • Symbolism In A Rose For Emily - 527 words
    William Faulkners A Rose for Emily is a story that addresses the symbolic changes in the South after the civil war. Miss Emily's house symbolizes neglect and poverty of the new times in the town of Jefferson. The rampant symbolism and Faulkner's descriptions of the decaying house, coincide with Miss Emily's physical and emotional decay, and also emphasize her mental degeneration, and further illustrate the outcome of Faulkner's story. Miss Emily's decaying house, not only lacks genuine love and care, but so does she in her adult life, but more so during her childhood. The pertinence of Miss Emily's house in relation to her physical appearance is brought on by constant neglect and under-appre ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 527 words
    Love as defined by Websters is a strong and deep feeling of attachment, great affection; passionate attraction and ardent affection, especially for one of the opposite sex(183). My definition of love is unconditional acceptance, devoutness, and trust, between two consenting individuals. The people involved in a loving relationship share lifes turmoils and lifes pleasures. In Faulkners A Rose for Emily, Emilys concept of the word love varies greatly from both Websters definition and from mine. Emily believed that love meant never being alone even in death. This is clearly evident when we noticed that in the second pillow was an indentation of a head. One of us lifted something from it, and le ...

  • Rose For Emily - 891 words
    In a A Rose for Emily the author, William Faulkner, symbolizes the state of the post civil war south in the story of Miss Emily Grieson. This leads Miss Emily to be the center of the tale, a woman sheltered by her father as a girl and betrayed by her lover as a woman. The setting for A Rose for Miss Emily is in a post civil war era in the town of Jefferson, an imaginary town used by Faulkner in his stories, a south becoming aware of its role in a nation. In a way the whole story is symbolic of change in the towns life, or the south, through out Miss Emilys life. The symbolism in the decaying house coincides with the emotional and physical status of Miss Emily; the house needs the love and ca ...

  • Analysis For A Rose For Emily - 1,104 words
    An analysis of "A Rose for Emily" by Celia Rodriguez West suggests that modern art grew out of a dissatisfaction with existing belief. He also claims that nineteenth-century romanticism in England and in America, particularly during the latter half of this age, was relatively complacent, but that this complacency became an impossibility following the shock of World War I (West, 92). Artists asked the questions: "Which values of the past are illusory? Which have value for us today? In what terms do they have value? Are there new values more suitable to the present, and are they also illusory or are they vitally related to our needs?" (West, 92). Similar questions seem to lie behind Faulkner's ...

    . All her life Emily tried to escape from change. Even the posting of the new mailbox was unacceptable for her. She acted as though nothing around her had changed her entire life. Even though death and loss affected her, she seemed to try to avoid thinking about it. Emily is unable to balance her traditions in modern times. But, the roots of her tragedy lay in the fact, that neither can the people who surround her in the town. In the story, Faulkner presents us with a sad tale of a lonely woman, who is only met with disappointment and grief in her search for love. Emily was a lonely woman. Miss Emily came from a powerful family. She had experienced a controlling love from her father. That lo ...

  • A Rose For Emily - 1,484 words
    William Faulkners A Rose for Emily has been interpreted in many different ways. Most of these rely solely on hints found within the story. I believe that his life can also help one analyze this story. By knowing that Faulkners strongest influence was his independent mother, one can guess that Miss Emily Griersons character was based partly on Maud Falkner. William Cuthbert Faulkner was born in New Albany, Mississippi on September 25, 1897. His family moved to Oxford, Mississippi when Faulkner was five years old (Larinde). His parents were Murry and Maud Falkner (Zane 2). Faulkner added the u to his last name on his Royal Air Force application for unknown reasons (5). Faulkners great-grandfat ...

  • 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 ...

  • Critical Analysis Of "a Rose For Emily" - 518 words
    "A Rose for Emily" is a mysterious short story written by William Faulkner. He uses many techniques to enhance the story's mysterious setting, such as foreshadowing and an out-of-order time sequence to alter the mood and perception of the story. The setting of Faulkner's story is very similar to that of his own in his adolescent years. The time is shortly after the Civil War, early 1900's, and the setting is definitely in a Southern atmosphere. Faulkner might have written the story to portray a piece his own life, or simply to provide an audience with a good story of his writing style, mysterious and suspenseful yet yearning for sympathy. Yet another reason could have been to make a point ab ...

  • 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 ...

  • Comparison: "a Rose For Emily" And "the Death Of Ivan Illych - 1,014 words
    William Faulkner was born in the American South, dropped out of high school in tenth grade and published his more popular works between 1954 and 1962. Interestingly enough, Leo Tolstoy was born into a noble Russian family, his official title being Count, entered the University of Kazan at age sixteen and wrote his most popular works between 1865 and 1876. Indeed, on the surface there seems to be very little in common between these two men and yet there exits such overwhelming similarity between the short stories A Rose For Emily and The Death of Ivan Illych in terms of narration, character and theme that it is almost as if the stories were written to complement each other. Perhaps the most g ...

    ... tion, but that by keeping herself isolated and refusing to marry Homer Barron because of the sense of "noblesse oblige" that her father had ingrained into her, she had in her life been a sterling tribute to her father. Thus, both Faulkner and Tolstoy, though not dwelling on the point are acknowledging the powerful roles the parents had in the lives of Ivan and Emily, and ultimately, their deaths. Moreover, both stories dwell on the theme of a person's isolation from society. In A Rose For Emily, Emily physically separates herself from the rest of the world and resigns to the decrepit house where she died, while Ivan, though he remained at home near to his family while on his deathbed , h ...
