A Rose For Emily
A Rose for Emily
After reading the story, A Rose for Emily, I set the book down and thought about the story for a bit. I found that there was a lot of symbolism used in the story. From the information gathered, I decided to write about how the author compared the house to Emily so much. Instead of giving my opinion of why I didn?t like the story much, I am going to take a different route in my journal this week. I am going to interpret the symbolism of the house to the main character in the story which is Emily.
In its prime, the Grierson house is described as a ?big, squarish frame house that had once been white, decorated with cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies in the heavily lightsome style of the seventies, set on what had once been our most select street? (Faulkner 484). This sentence in the story was to impress and gather the attention
