As we read this story we realize that Emily starts as a young girl. Emily becomes fond of him, but others find the relationship impossible because each of their different classes. During the story, the conflicts of the old and young generations push Emily all the way back to the past. In addition, the town was gossip to Miss Emily when she started dating Homer.

It was a disgrace to the town and a bad example to the young people. So, townspeople thought they have wed. The townspeople notice the indentation of a head in the pillow next to the body and along iron-gray hair in the pillow. This is important because it shows to us that Emily had murdered Homer Barron with poison for rats and she lay on in the bed next to his dead body.
I believe that Emily killed him because she was afraid of losing him. When you give a flower in a funeral, you are showing pity for the person who died. He was a servant, he only have to serve other people. At the beginning, Emily had a lot of boyfriends but his father thought nobody was good enough to marry with her. After his death, Emily stayed alone and single.
A Rose for Emily
Miss Emily was isolated first by her father, and then by the town, by everyone except the Negro. He was the only one who really cares about Emily. Yes, when we remembered a situation, our memory works in the same way: So, she stayed locked inside her home, she never went out and she remained single until she meets Homer Barron.
When Miss Emily begins dating Homer Barron, she is trying to free herself from her father's past control, and from the tradition of being a proper lady.A Rose for Emily William Faulkner (Audiobook)
Time went by and the new generation arrived, but Emily was living in the past. Even though, she believed that Colonel Santoris was alive and the truth is that he had died a decade ago.
Also, the Grierson house is a symbol of living in the past. The house had once been white and had been in the most select street of the town. But in the present, the house showed a state of decay among a neighbourhood that was changing progressively. She was lost everything her father, her richness, her youth and then when she met Homer Barron she felt the necessity to kill him because of being afraid of losing him.
She only pay attention to her life and her problems. They come to town during Emily's courting of Homer Barron to check on Emily's well-being. They are thought of as even more uptight and stuffy than Emily by the townspeople. They are called in to prevent Emily and Homer from marrying; however, they are later sent back home so that the two can be wed. During the years of Emily's isolation, he provides no details of her life to the townspeople and promptly disappears directly following her death.
He became old and stooped from all of his work while Emily grew large and immobile. 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.
Structure[ edit ] Faulkner tells this story in a series of flashbacks and stretches the story out over decades.

This leads the reader to assume that she was an important figure in the town. Emily stuck out from the rest of the town as a figure stuck in the past, desperately trying to cling to old traditions and ways of life.
With her passing on, the town can finally be free of this remnant, being wholly set in the present. Had the story been told in a linear fashion, this understanding would have been lost, something Faulkner knew and incorporated into the story. By presenting the story in terms of present and past events, he could examine how they influence each other. In terms of mathematical precision, time moves on and what exists is only the present. In terms of the more subjective time, time moves on but memories can exist no matter how much time changes.
Those memories stay unhindered. Through this Faulkner could analyze the depth at which Miss Emily could change as a character. If Faulkner presented the story in a linear fashion, the chances of the reader sympathizing with Emily would be far less. By telling the story out of order, the reader sees Emily as a tragic product of her environment rather than a twisted necrophiliac. The story explores themes of death and resistance to change; they reflect the decaying of the societal tenets of the South in the s.
Likewise, the antiquated traditions of the south often harmful, such as in the treatment of black people had remained acceptable, as that was their way of living.
Once her father had passed, Emily, in denial, refused to give his corpse up for burial—this shows her inability to functionally adapt to change. When the present mayor and aldermen insist Miss Emily pay the taxes which she had been exempted from, she refuses and continues to live in her house. The reader is only shown Emily from an external perspective, we can not ascertain whether she acts in a rational manner or not.
The death of Homer, if interpreted as having been a murder, can be seen in the context of the North-South clash. Homer, notably a northerner, is not one for the tradition of marriage. In the framework that his death was not an accident, but a murder on the part of Emily, Homer's rejection of the marriage can be seen as the North's rejection of Southern tradition.
The South ends its relations with the North in retaliation. Emily continuing to sleep next to Homer's body can be seen as the south holding on to an ideal that is no longer feasible. Control and its repercussions is a persistent theme throughout the story. Emily's father was an intimidating and manipulative figure, keeping her from experiencing life in her own terms. She was never able to grow, learn, live her life, start a family, and marry the one she truly loved.
Even after Emily's father died, his presence and impact on his daughter were still apparent. Discussing Emily and her father, the townspeople said "We had long thought of them as a tableau, Miss Emily a slender figure in white in the background, her father a spraddled silhouette in the foreground, his back to her and clutching a horsewhip, the two of them framed by the back-flung front door.

She wears white, a symbol of innocence and purity. Emily falls victim to the ruling hand of her father and to her place in the society: This control leads to Emily's isolation, both externally and internally imposed. Emily is alone, yet always being watched by the townspeople; she is both apart from and a part of the community. The power of death is a consistent theme throughout the story. Emily herself is portrayed as a "skeleton" that is both "small and spare" which is representative of the fact that she emanates death.
When it comes to death itself, Emily is in denial and most of that feeling has to do with her loneliness. After her father dies, she keeps his corpse for three days and refuses to admit that he is dead. The reader also sees this with the corpse of Homer Barron, except she is the one who inflicts death upon him.
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. These examples show that the power of death triumphs over everything, including "poor Emily", herself. Here, a character's fate is already determined no matter how much the individual struggles to change it.
There are impersonal forces of nature that prevent him or her from taking control. As the very universe itself appear indifferent, this character descends into an inevitable death and decay.
