Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude.
