"A Rose for Emily" is William Faulkner’s story which was first published in April 30, 1930. The story began by illustrating Emily’s funeral in a large house which was once the best of a neighboorhood. Emily, the main character of the story was described by the narrator as someone who is an enthusiast into love. Her experiences where both her father, Mr. Grierson and Homer died had gave large impacts on her level of acceptance. This is true as Emily is largely dependent upon her father and was left foundering when he died. It is also implied from the story that not only had Emily killed Homer with an arsenic, but has had an intimate relationship with his corpse up to her own death. The story also tells us on how the society is divided among different levels. Rich, medium class and poor. This is proven as for when Emily was togethes with Homer, the society disapprove of it and thought that it was not right.
