A Rose for Emily is one of Faulkner's most anthologized stories which reveal grotesque imagery and first-individual plural portrayal to investigate a culture not able to adapt to its own death and rot. A Rose for Emily starts with the declaration of the death of Miss Emily Grierson, an estranged spinster living in the South in the late nineteenth or early twentieth century. The narrator, who talks in the "we" voice and seems to represent the populace of the town, describes the story of Emily's life as a lonely and impoverished woman left destitute by her father, who headed out suitors from his overprotected daughter. Emily was left when her father kicked the bucket with an extensive, flimsy house, into which the townspeople have never been welcomed, and there is a very nearly lurid enthusiasm among them when they are at long last ready to go into the house upon Emily's death. By then they find reality about the degree of Emily's issues: she has kept the body of her lover, a

Faulkner enjoyed writing stories that took place in the Southern parts of America, post Civil War in the fictional town of Yoknapatawpha County. This was based where Faulkner lived most of his life in Lafayette County, Mississippi. Change is a major theme in “A Rose For Emily”. “Change is Miss Emily’s enemy, so she refuses to acknowledge it, whether that change is the death of her father, the arrival of tax bills, the decay of her house”(Mosby 1). Her father 's death was by far the most detrimental change that further
She made this journey to check up on her elderly father, Atticus, and during her time back in her hometown, she finds herself at odds with the ideals of the community she once thought she knew. Racial tensions have put southern beliefs and civil rights on opposite ends of the scales, something Jean Louise comes to notice during her visit and she comes to find that those close to her weren’t as just and right as she had believed them to be all her life. Jean Louise spent her entire childhood in Maycomb, a very rural and southern area. She lived with Jem, her brother, Atticus, her father and Calpurnia, her black housekeeper. Since leaving Maycomb to attend college in New York City, Jean Louise has visited seldomly, one of the notable times being to attend the funeral of her brother Jem.
In william faulkner 's " A Rose for Emily" the main character , the protagonist, has many different sides and directions. The story concentrates enormously on the superego of Emily Grierson.

By isolating her from common folk nearly all her life, Miss Emily Grierson was put in a direct line of failure which snowballed rapidly after her father’s death, leading her to “cling to that which had robbed her, as people will” (77). The town of Jefferson played another very important conflict in
To compare, Faulkner shares a slice of evidence as to why Emily has an uncontrollable obsession for the dead, “After her father 's death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all.” (Faulkner) Given these points, her father becomes arrogant and isolates her from society, or anyone who is willing to take Miss Emily from him. When her father, the only man in the world who has loved her,
