If you've never read anything by William Faulkner, read this story.


I first read Faulkner's classic "A Rose for Emily" in college years ago. Initially I just dropped a 4 star rating on it and left it at that. But then something happened. A few friends liked my rating, and this story kept stealing back into my mind like Homer Barron sneaking in through Emily's back door, and making itself at home in my head, an uninvited and a little bit uncomfortable guest.

So I starting doing a little research on
Aj the Ravenous Reader

A classic, literary short story that will give you the ultimate creeps. A Rose for Emily is a dark, disturbing but strongly evocatively written tale rich in symbols, ironies and vivid imagery and remarkably depicts the consequences of living in and wanting to preserve one’s glorious past. You can read the short story here.
We did not say she was crazy then. We believed she had to do that. We remembered all the young men her father had driven away, and we knew that with nothing left, she would have to cling to that which had robbed her, as people will.

The second William Faulkner short story I have read turned out to be an absolute success. On diverting, brief eight pages, Faulkner manages to introduce his readers to the character of Miss Emily Grierson, a woman marked by loneliness and bitterness. This story de
Faulkner's classic short story was first published in 1930 in The Forum, his first story to be published in a national magazine. At the time it didn't bring him much commercial success, nor did his now famous novels, The Sound and the Fury (1929), and As I Lay Dying (1930). That success would come later in his career with two Pulitzer Prize winning novels, A Fable (1954), and The Reivers (1962), along with the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949.

A Rose for Emily is the tragic story of Miss Emily
William Faulkner's A Rose for Emily: The Town as Narrator and Accomplice

This classic Southern gothic story was chosen as a Moderators' Choice for members of On the Southern Literary Trail for October, 2014.

WHEN Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at leas

This is a short story - not at all a "book" - and I found a version online. Quick read and creepy! It's interesting how people will look the other way when they know something is wrong or someone is up to no good, as a show of "respect." It's also interesting to me how Emily clings to tradition - the structure she has always known - instead of breaking free, into the unknown. She holds onto her father's corpse as a way of resisting changes to her life. She becomes a recluse. She even kills the m ...more

This wasn't really recommended to me by Aj. My curiosity just got the best of me after reading Aj's short but informative review here and Rachel's review.

I honestly have to read this short story twice for the story to actually sink in. I didn't know where the story was about or where it will lead to at first everything started to make sense the more you delve into the story, but I just have to read it again - to know if there were some clues and hints out there I missed before the genius Faulkne
"A Rose for Emily" was an enjoyable Southern Gothic short story. In a series of flashbacks, the narrator tells the reader about Emily's life. Emily was alone in the world because her father had driven away all her suitors. There were few roles open to women other than being a wife and mother in the early 20th Century. She later meets a Northerner, but "he was not a marrying man," and disappeared. We see the world move on as the reclusive Emily remains stuck in traditional times in a changing Sou ...more

واقعا چه داستان کوتاه غافل گیر کننده ای بود ! فقط انتهاش رو سه بار خوندم تا از بهت در بیام و هضم کنم که چی شده و امیلی چه دلباخته ی خودخواهی بوده که دست به این کار زده و سالها تونسته از همه این راز بزرگ و مخوف رو اینقدر زیرکانه پنهان کنه , نمیدونم این دیگه چه جور عشقی میتونه باشه ولی من هنوز در بهتم ؛ احتمالا این عشق نیست بلکه یک جور جنون و خودخواهی محض هست که همیشه با عشق اشتباه گرفته میشه ...

The majority of his works are based in his native state of Mississippi. Though his work was published as earl
More about William Faulkner...
“For a long while we just stood there, looking down at the profound and fleshless grin. The body had apparently once lain in the attitude of an embrace, but now the long sleep that outlasts love, that conquers even the
grimace of love, had cuckolded him. What was left of him, rotted beneath what was left of the nightshirt, had become inextricable from the bed in which he lay; and upon him and upon the pillow beside him lay that even coating of the patient and biding dust.
Then we noticed that in the second pillow was the indentation of a head. One of us lifted something from it, and leaning forward, that faint and invisible dust dry and acrid in the nostrils, we saw a long strand of iron-grey hair.”
“They held the funeral on the second day, with the town coming to look at Miss Emily beneath a mass of bought flowers with the crayon face of her father musing profoundly above the bier and the ladies sibilant and macabre; and the very old men - some in their brushed Confederate uniforms - on the porch and the lawn, talking of Miss Emily as if she had been a contemporary of theirs, believing that they had danced with her and courted her perhaps, confusing time with its mathematical progression, as the old do, to whom all the past is not a diminishing road but, instead, a huge meadow which no winter ever quite touches, divided from them now by the narrow bottle-neck of the most recent decade of years.” 10 likes
