The story A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner in my opinion was a very interesting story. The story was about a old and troubled woman named Emily Grierson who because of her father?s death had become one of the towns obligation?s and also one of it?s problems. Emily a very stubborn old lady who refused to pay her taxes because of a little tale that Colonel Sartoris who was the mayor at the time had told her. He told her that her father had lent the town some money and because of it in a way of paying her back all of her taxes were remitted. Faulkner portrayed Emily?s character to be very Stubborn and by the end made people think she was crazy. He develops this through many things but the main thing was by her actions to different situations and the way she lived her life This essay is going to talk about the things she said, did and about what other people said about her.
Emily Grierson?s is an old lady who is very stubborn. Faulkner manages to show this through different events that happen in the story and how she reacts towards them. One of
