An analysis of the conflicts in a rose for emily by william faulkner

A Rose for Emily

She poisons him and keeps him locked away in her room; she did not want to lose the only other person she had ever loved, so she made his stay permanent. In terms of the more subjective time, time moves on but memories can exist no matter how much time changes.

Plot summary[ edit ] The story opens with a brief first-person account of the funeral of Emily Griersonan elderly Southern woman whose funeral is the obligation of their small town.

We move from a huge funeral attended by everybody in town, to this strange little story about taxes. That was when people had begun to feel really sorry for her.

This could suggest that he resented Emily, or at the very least disliked working for her, as he does not mourn her or stay for her funeral.

Homer is never seen again. The funeral is a large affair; Emily had become an institution, so her death sparks a great deal of curiosity about her reclusive nature and what remains of her house. After her father dies, she keeps his corpse for three days and refuses to admit that he is dead.

The day after Mr. The connection surprises some of the community while others are glad she is taking an interest. However, the townspeople are convinced that she will use it to poison herself. With no offer of marriage in sight, Emily is still single by the time she turns thirty.

This is shown by her keeping his clothes in the room, keeping his engraved wedding items on the dresser, and even sleeping with him, all acts that normal married couples do. There are impersonal forces of nature that prevent him or her from taking control.

Holed up in the house, Emily grows plump and gray. The more outraged women of the town insist that the Baptist minister talk with Emily. The rose may be seen as Homer, interpreting the rose as a dried rose.

The reason for his refusal to let Emily court men is not explained in the story. The townspeople excused her behavior because they thought that she was crazy. She was never able to grow, learn, live her life, start a family, and marry the one she truly loved.

Meeting them at the door, Emily states that her father is not dead, a charade that she keeps up for three days. They bombarded her with letters and then a meeting.

The taxes seem tame compared to what comes next. A contributing factor to this point would change. In what becomes an annual ritual, Emily refuses to acknowledge the tax bill.

Because he refused to allow her to have suitors, he forever doomed her to a solitary life. The men went to her funeralA Rose For Emily is a short story that was written inby William Faulkner. It is considered to be among the greatest piece of literature that has been interpreted many times.
