The portion that I highly disliked about the novel is in the end. Anse is coming back to the wagon, after burying Addie the previous day before, while walking he looks “kind of hangdog and proud too, with his teeth and all, even if he wouldn’t look at us. ‘Meet Mrs. Bundren,’ he says” (261). This hurts me because after putting all the effort to bring his dead-for-nine-days wife back to Jefferson in order to bury her with her family, Anse goes and finds a new wife.

This quote shows that the “M.D” does not care that Millie just attempted to kill herself. In Fahrenheit no one grieves, but people kill themselves everyday because they are not happy with the dystopian society their world has created. On the other hand, people in modern society mourn when someone passes; Present-day has funerals for their loved ones. Suicide is not as normal as it in Fahrenheit 451. There is emotion in present-day society because
As the story goes on, Faulkner describes Emily’s death: “When Miss Emily Grierson died the whole town went to her funeral: the men out of respectful affection for a fallen monument and the women mostly out of curiosity” (Faulkner).

“After her father 's death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all.” (Faulkner 517) Miss Emily was from a time where there was an expectation of what women were supposed to do and what they were expected to do. “In this case there was a young girl [Miss Emily] with a young girl’s normal aspirations to find love and then a husband, who was brow-beaten and kept down by her father, a selfish man who didn’t want her to leave home because he wanted a housekeeper” (Faulkner 523) And this expectation that Miss Emily had for herself to find a find a husband to kill Homer Barron because she did not want him to leave, her guilt for her crime is what causes her to stay mind to stay cemented in a time before Homer Barren died because excepting the passage of time would cause her to accept what she has done. “When she lost him [Homer Barren] she could see that for her this was the end of life, there was nothing except left, except to grow older, alone, solitary; she had something and she wanted to keep it” (Faulkner 523) She imprisoned not only herself to the confines of her own home but also Homer Barron, and the house became her prison and her sanctuary. She chose her home to be her prison because in her home she was free to become oblivious to the outside world, so that she may allow herself to believe that time has stood still in her home and that the passage of time has ceased to
