"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.

Homer Barron’s crew comes to town to build sidewalks, and Emily is seen with him. He tells his drinking buddies that he is not the marrying kind. The townspeople consider their relationship improper because of differences in values, social class, and regional background. Emily buys arsenic and refuses to say why. The ladies in town convince the Baptist minister to confront Emily and attempt to persuade her to break off the relationship. When he refuses to discuss their conversation or to try again to persuade Miss Emily, his wife writes to Emily’s Alabama cousins. They come to Jefferson, but the townspeople find them even more haughty and disagreeable than Miss Emily. The cousins leave town.

    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.

    Unmoved, she notes the chariot''''s pausing
    At her low gate;
    Unmoved, an emperor is kneeling
    Upon her mat.

    I''''ve known her from an ample nation
    Choose one;
    Then close the valves of her attention
    Like stone.

    "A Rose for Emily" is narrated in the first-person plural from the perspective of the town. It utilizes the plural "we," indicating that the narrator is a collective rather than an individual.

    Faulkner uses foreshadowing to prepare the reader for the big reveal at the end of the story. Some examples of foreshadowing include Emily buying the arsenic and Emily refusing to acknowledge anyone''s death.

    That s actually a reasonable opening paragraph for an essay on "A Rose for Emily." You ll want to swing, immediately, into a discussion of the house and how it is initially seen by the townspeople with the first sentence of your next paragraph, but I think you ve made a good start. One minor punctuation quibble: you re missing a comma in your second sentence: "In his short story, "A Rose for Emily," William Faulkner.." You need that comma after the word "story."

    In writing about literature or any specific text, you will strengthen your discussion if you offer specific passages from the text as evidence. Rather than simply dropping in quotations and expecting their significance and relevance to your argument to be self-evident, you need to provide sufficient analysis of the passage. Remember that your over-riding goal of analysis writing is to demonstrate some new understanding of the text.

    It is never clearly stated. In my Lit class we agreed that the "rose" was symbolic of Emily s life and the death she saw. Roses represent life and death, and Homer was Emily s rose. She dried him out and kept him just like a precious rose.
