A couple of things you need to further solidify your analysis:
Look closer at why Emily is portrayed in this manner. What is Faulkner
saying about Emily’s society and culture in how they contribute to her
development as a character? What is the role of women in this story and
how does Faulkner portray this? What is the irony behind her “marrying”
Homer? How does the story characterize Homer that adds to the level of
irony in the story?
One thing that is curtailing your interpretation is your misunderstanding of
Homer who does not follow the descriptions you provide (see my
comment).
You also need to include at least one close reading in which you analyze
some aspect of the language in a passage from the story exploring the
implications of the language used in the quotes more fully, so that you’re in
essence analyzing by “reading in between the lines.” Make sure you
explore all pertinent phrases and words to show their relationship to an
overall meaning.
You also need to omit any kind of response such as personal reactions
from your essay. Remember, academic writing is devoid of “I” whereas the
focus is more on the subject matter, being the short story analysis in this
case

A Rose for Emily
A Rose for Emily was the initial short story that Faulkner worked on in a major magazine
and appeared in the 1930 issue of the forum. The story was published at a time when Faulkner
was trying to make a name for himself with critics recognizing him as a new voice. In short, this
short story is what made Faulkner recognized for his authentic literature works. Not only was
Faulkner recognized during this time, but it also contributed to modern literature. So what makes
this piece of writing more interesting? This piece of literature was constructed carefully through
paying attention to keen details. The author managed to incorporate literal devices and figures of
speech to tell of an interesting tale. Faulkner’s work of A Rose for Emily is a classic, literary
short story that will give you the creeps with its dark and disturbing tale rich in symbols, ironies,
and vivid imageries. Ultimately, it is the chilling story of Emily’s’ dusty world that draws me
into the dank.
Today, the anthologized story is among the best works of Faulkner which remarkably
depicts the consequences of having to preserve one’s glorious past. Among its great works is the
gothic atmospheric theme created through imagery creating a theme of a lurid appeal of the
tensions that existed between the North and the South. The setting is during the late 1800’s to
1900’s vividly explaining the complexities of fluctuating world order and aristocracy and social
constraints that are placed on women (Kirszner and Mandell 121). The story portrays the people
of Southern town of Jefferson and focuses on Emily’s current life after living an aristocratic life
that her father led and was recognized in the past. During the olden times, aristocrats had huge
2
mansions that spoke wealth. Unfortunately so, Emily was not that lucky to enjoy the aristocratic
life she once had. The houses are old with gothic themes and traditional stereotypic behaviors
concerning Southerners and Northerners, as well as gay and straight people.
According to Kirszner and Mandell 121, there were conflicts between the North and the
South. Worse still, racism was at its full burst where the minority groups were secluded from the
Whites who were the dominating ethnic group. In the same regard, those were times when
women were undermined in the male dominated era. For those reasons alone, it was very odd to
see Emily falling in love with a dark skinned person.
The plot begins with Emily being considered as weird with her life of seclusion and
living in an old house that would have considered exquisite during the past days. Interesting also,
no one knows what happens inside the house, and the authorities allow her to live her secluded
life without even paying taxes. According to Faulkner, when Emily’s father dies, she is torn apart
and becomes stressed and weary drawing attention and sympathy from people. What is also
interesting and captures my imagination is what the smell was like and how she managed to
survive through that alone in her house (Hsu and Wang 87). More so, how did she manage to
survive through society’s opposition to her relationship with Homer? Despite this, she still
manages to live her secluded life and was eventually found dead in her house with the corpse of
Homer with her gray hair on his body. Intriguing also, is that no one knows what actually went
on for the bodies to be found in separate rooms under weird circumstances.
The figurative language of suspense illustrated throughout the story is incredibly amazing
making a reader want to read more in order to know what will happen next. Emily lives with
suspicious thoughts and her secluded life as she does not interact with the community. Even
more suspicious is how the occupants and guests of the house ended up dead without people
3
noticing. Everything about the story is strange, from the gothic and dark theme and the setting
that the story was placed. Her dusky, dark world gives me the chills; imagining her big, dark
house with a gothic appeal that spells out doom and fear. It is frightening to live alone in a big
dark house that is full of shadows and gothic themes.
Imagery is also extensively used creating a more precise imagination of how the fictional
story and characters could be in the real world. “It was a big, squarish frame house that had once
been white, decorated with cupolas……… in the heavy lightsome style of the seventies…” gives
an idea of how Emily’s house looked like in the gothic appeal (Kirszner and Mandell 121).
Better yet, the flat character in Emily quickly draws the attention of a reader as one would want
to know if she is the antagonist or the protagonist in the story. On one level, she shows the
characters of a stereotypic Southern behavior as she enforces her sense of law and conduct. She
is also irritating and unstable begging the question of how such a person can interact with others.

Process Summation
I chose the story since it gives me a chilling and vivid life of how life in the 1800’s was.
Besides the thrill of the story, it draws me into the dark. I first read the abstracts of the articles
that were used to understand what the story was about. As a result, I got to understand that
people have lived through oppression in the changing dynamics of this society. Patriarchy is
Southerner’s society values were what dominated the era. After understanding the story, I read
through the work to make sure that the essay would make sense to the reader. The purpose of the
essay is to make sense of how cruel the life was in the olden times through an example of
Faulkner’s short story.

Annotated Bibliography
Hsu, Chenghsun, and Ya-huei Wang. “The Fall of Emily Grierson: A Jungian Analysis of A
Rose for Emily.” k@ ta 16.2 (2014): 87-92.
According to Hsu et al., the life in the 1800’s was dominated by patriarchy and the traditional
values of the Southerners. The death of her father is what caused Emily’s grief and solitary life in
the big mysterious house. According to Jungian theories, the aspects of the aristocratic and
patriarchal society are the major contributing factors to the fall of Emily. As a result, the article
becomes useful in analyzing how patriarchal and aristocracy plays a role in the society and lives
of people.
Kirszner, Laurie, and Stephen Mandell. The brief Wadsworth handbook. Nelson Education,
2012.
According to Kirszner et al., Emily’s father refused any marriage proposals that were made to
Emily. For that reason, Emily grew old without being married and lived a life of seclusion. More
so, she was so tied to her father that she feels devastated by his death. This clearly proves Hsu’s
facts that the male dominated era made women useless and undervalued. Men dominated and
controlled the lives of women. The main purpose of the article is to understand the main events
of the story.
