I believe that the story “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner is a character driven story but also has a strong emphasis on the plot. The whole story was about a woman named Miss Emily but the plot twists and external conflicts were greatly emphasized. The external conflict of this story was that the antagonist, her father, made it so she didn’t have a husband. “We remembered all the young men her father had driven away.” (Faulkner, “A Rose for Emily” 101) The barrier her father made between her and men caused Miss Emily to get so attached to a man, that when he was going to leave her, she killed him. This then makes this story character driven in the sense that the once external conflict turned into an underlying internal one.
