They found Homer lying in the bed decayed. Everyone then realizes that was the awful smell coming from house. If there was a missing person now, the people in the town would have been more suspicious and notified the police. The authorities would have questioned Miss Emily about Homer’s disappearance and searched her house since that is where he was last seen. In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily”, it is important to have knowledge of the background history.

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth accompanied by Lennox the nobleman of Scotland and Macduff the Thane of Fife discovered the lifeless body of King Duncan the morning after. They also found King Duncan's servants asleep right outside his chamber grasping bloody daggers with royal blood streaked on their faces and clothing.When we questioned Macbeth about stumbling upon the assassinated king and his murderers he made a shocking revelation to us; “O, yet I do repent me of my fury That I did kill them (the King’s servants)”. When we asked Macbeth why he acted out so irrationally he attempted to justify his actions by stating “There the murderers, Steep’d in the colours of their trade; their daggers Unmannerly breech’d with gore.
However, in reality, symbols can interpret what we experience as humans in our lives that can be characterized as symbols in a story we create. In Faulkner 's case, he did an outstanding job in connecting his past experiences in the civil war by symbolizing the falling of the south in conjunction with the symbols in the story. Moreover, in "A Rose for Emily" the symbols that are embedded within the story, create a new kind of depth as well as emphasizing the importance of every aspect that is in the story that Faulkner had in
One way that Faulkner furthers the theme of isolation throughout the short story is through the interactions Emily has with the people of the town. At the beginning of the story, Faulkner paints a sad story about the life of Miss Emily Grierson. Faulkner stated, “When Miss Emily died, our whole town went to her funeral… the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old manservant---a combined gardener and cook had seen in at least ten years” (1.730). This quote is significant because it illustrates that Miss Emily was isolated from her community for quite some time. This opening scene paints a picture of unwavering loneliness experienced by Miss Emily.

His wife falls ill and dies, and while her body is lying in her bed he hears “...a sob, low, gentle, but very distinct...I felt that it came from the bed of ebony — the bed of death.” (Poe Ligeia). The corpse begins to move every hour then fall back to the bed, and then a few hours later moves more violently then stand straight up. The corpse's hair changes from blonde to “blacker than the raven wings of the midnight!” (Poe Ligeia). The corpse of his wife changes to the Lady Ligeia. It is most likely that most of the "phantasmagoric” events that take place in the story don’t take place at all.
Literary devices are used to bridge the gaps and fill in the cracks for me where simple words do not suffice in some stories. I find myself constantly searching stories for and identifying different types of literary devices. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, three uses of literary devices were demonstrated and used consistently. These literary devices are: repetition, imagery and flashbacks. This literary narrative is centered on an epic journey that utilizes literary devices to enhance the complexity and understanding in the story.
In William Faulkner's " A Rose for Emily", Faulkner tells a story of a woman's life and death and the conflict between two eras; the Old South and the New South. Faulkner personifies the Old South as Miss Emily Grierson, the last southern bell. The young men and women of Jefferson represent the New South. Throughout the story, Faulkner uses an altered timeline to convey the struggle of the Old South versus the New South, and communicate the Old South's refusal to let go of the past and move forward into a new era. The story is set in the post-Civil War reconstruction era where two generations are colliding on letting go of the past and trying to move forward.
