  • 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 ...

  • The Dynamics Of Sarty - 618 words
    In the story Barn Burning by William Faulkner, the character Colonel Sartoris Snopes, nicknamed Sarty, displays many different and interesting traits. Most of these characteristics are seen through his thoughts that the author includes periodically throughout the story. The thoughts in the reading lead you to the conclusion that Sarty is definitely a character who is very dynamic and self motivated. In the beginning of the story in the courtroom scene, the reader is first introduced to the idea that Sarty is very proud of and in awe of his father. This is shown when Sarty is thinking about his fathers enemy being his as well, ourn! mine and hisn both! Hes my father!(N590). These statements a ...

  • Plot - 1,340 words
    Michael Palomo Palomo 1 In William Faulkner's "A Rose for Emily" there are numerous aspects of the plot that can be explored. The use of conflict, foreshadowing, and flashbacks throughout the story form the plot along with its characters. The plot's stages can be traced throughout the story. The start and end of the exposition, climax, and resolution can be identified. There is also a protagonist and a few antagonists in this story. The story is based on the life of a southern woman and the outcome of probably her one and only relationship with a man.

  • 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 ...

  • Barn Burning - 1,116 words
    Youre getting to be a man. You got to learn. You got to learn to stick to your own blood or you aint going to have any blood to stick to you. This quote from William Faulkners Barn Burning does reveal a central issue in the story, as Jane Hiles suggests in her interpretation. The story is about blood ties, but more specifically, how these ties affect Sarty (the central character of the story). The story examines the internal conflict and dilemma that Sarty faces. When the story begins, Sarty and his family are in a courtroom. Sarty, known in a proper setting as Colonel Sartoris, which in itself gives an insight into the families mentality. Sartys father, Abner Snopes is being accused of a ba ...

  • 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 ...

  • Lets Give Them Something To Talk About - 611 words
    Lets Give Em Something to Talk About Writing is a rare talent that belongs only to few. Authors can make us cry, they can make us laugh, they can make us angry, they can create fright, and they can create suspense. This simple language that we use everyday, writers can put together to make a fascinating puzzle for us to look at. This fascination is true for such stories as A Clean Well-Lighted Place, by Ernest Hemingway, and Barn Burning, by William Faulkner. Similarly, both of these writers depend on personal experience to create their own unique style seen in most of their works. Hemingway generally writes stories that take place in Europe, where he spent most of his time in Italy and Fran ...

  • Barn Burning An Endless Circle - 613 words
    William Faulkners short story Barn Burning is the tale of a southern man forced into a role by society. Barn Burning takes place in the post Civil War South where a mans place in society is derived by their actions during the war. Ab Snopse, a man who served both the North and the South, is plagued with his non-allegiance and failure to accept authority. When Ab comes into conflict with his employer, he finds himself taking control from the authority figure, and reverting back to his mercenary ways. Having no allegiance, Ab makes the move from helping hand to the enemy by burning down barns. Along with many of Faulkners short stories, Barn Burning is set in the imaginary Mississippi county o ...

  • 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 ...

  • A Rose - 427 words
    In the 1930's people still thrive on gossip, particularly in a small town. People are overly curious and cruel at times, especially when it comes to Emily Grierson's mental disorder. In " A Rose for Emily," William Faulkner traces Miss Emily's increasing dementia and foreshadows the surprise ending. The reader begins to see Emily's insanity early in the story. She not only refuses to accept her father's death, but she also refuses to let the townspeople bury him. The townspeople do not say she is crazy yet. They believe that she has to "cling to that which had robbed her"(180). This is the first sign of Emily's vanishing sanity. Emily's state of mind grows worse after Homer Barron enters her ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Interpretation Of The Rose In "a Rose For Emily" - 574 words
    My interpretation of the story A Rose for Emily, is that of a women from the old south or reference to other people from the old south that are trying to hold their dignity of the southern gothic heritage. It seems that Miss Emily had been raised with the mindset of Confederate rule and slavery and when her father died she become insane or at least lost her sense of being. It appears that she locked a room in her house after her one love had left her and in this room lye the dead body of her father on the bed. She probably entered the room only to lye next to him and have conversations about her day. I think that the old black man that lived with her was because he could not adjust being fre ...

  • Critical Elements In A Rose For Emily - 1,258 words
    In the short story, A Rose for Emily, by William Faulkner, the main character, Emily Grierson, had a death and funeral that drew the attention of the entire town. The story is set during the changing times after the civil war, and there are many symbols in the story that bring out the theme of change. The story opens with Miss Emily Griersons death and funeral, which foreshadows the ending. The outcome is further emphasized by the symbolism of the decaying house, which parallels Emilys physical deterioration and shows her mental decline. Her life, like the decaying house, suffers from the lack of love and care. The characteristics of her house, like her physical appearance, are brought about ...

Without him she could not do anything except stay at home. When her father dies, Emily has to confront a new life without her sponsor. Since she is not able to function without the presence of her father, it is hard for her to adapt and accept the truth. When Emily's father dies, women of the town call on her to offer their help, which is their custom when someone suffers a tragic loss.

  • A Rose For Emily - 703 words
    Authors traditionally use symbolism as a way to represent the sometimes-intangible qualities of the characters, places and events in their work. In the short story, A Rose for Emily, William Faulkner uses symbolic elements to define and characterize Miss Emily Grierson. William Faulkners peculiar story, A Rose for Emily, portrays an insane young woman, Emily Grierson, who is isolated and displaced from society because of her father's attitude and restriction as she was growing up. Society regards her as a monument and the focal point of town interest because her family had a renowned southern reputation in town during the post civil war. Faulkner uses symbolism through Miss Emily, her house, ...
