    I need to create an outline for a compare and contrast essay between Faulkner''s short story "A Rose for Emily" and a film adaptation of the story. The outline needs a thesis statement and three credible academic sources.

    Miss Emily Grierson was born into an aristocratic family. Isolated at an early age by her father, Emily is placed on a pedestal by the townspeople, who like to think of her as "a tradition, a duty," even though they find her haughty and scornful.

    "A Rose for Emily" opens with Miss Emily Grierson's funeral. It then goes back in time to show the reader Emily's childhood. As a girl, Emily is cut off from most social contact by her father. When he dies, she refuses to acknowledge his death for three days. After the townspeople intervene and bury her father, Emily is further isolated by a mysterious illness, possibly a mental breakdown.

    WHEN Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at least ten years.

    They rose when she entered--a small, fat woman in black, with a thin gold chain descending to her waist and vanishing into her belt, leaning on an ebony cane with a tarnished gold head. Her skeleton was small and spare; perhaps that was why what would have been merely plumpness in another was obesity in her. She looked bloated, like a body long submerged in motionless water, and of that pallid hue. Her eyes, lost in the fatty ridges of her face, looked like two small pieces of coal pressed into a lump of dough as they moved from one face to another while the visitors stated their errand.

    Okay, since you are asking this here I m assuming that you want a short and sweet answer. The house is a very good piece of symbolism as it ages with Emily, and is symbolic of Emily herself. For example in the very beginning of the story Faulkner describes the house as ornately and beautifully designed FOR ITS ERA.. but not now, its all broken down and aged LIKE EMILY. Faulkner also uses a lot of imagery with the color black, this could be a symbol for the theme of death in the story. Another example of symbolism in the story is how Homer Baron symbolizes the post-civl war change in the South.. especially in the smaller towns of the south where the bigotries were slow to change. Many towns at this time were in rebuilding and modernization periods.
