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. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death.

Firstly, regarding the view of people on Miss Emily, they seem to pity her, firstly by the fact that she could not fulfill her womanhood by marriage, and then by the death of her father. They also often relate the pity and loneliness with madness. This is clearly reflected in “That was when people had begun to feel really sorry for her. People in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 80).

The other girls were enemies the building menacing, objects threatening: the notice-board with dangerous pins, the gallows-like which they are their Sunday eggs.

This quote explains a momentous part of the story, giving background information about Jing-mei’s mother while also showing the horrific fight that the story was leading up to.

I choose to do this paper on Critical Incident Stress Debriefing or CISD. The reason I went with CISD was that it is something that will give me information that could make me be able to help in a very wide variety of situations from natural disasters to terrorist attacks.
