A Rose for Emily

The Factors that Form the Character Emily Grierson the characters in a work of writing are not only created by their characteristics, but also by the story. There are lots of factors in a story which form the characters. It includes the background, mood, and theme. In William Faulkner’s A Rose for Emily, the conflict between past and present, sequential order and generations, her physical appearance and the fantastic mood affect the way the reader view Emily Grierson. In the little town of Jefferson, everywhere in the south, lived a woman named Miss Emily.

After her father died, the Colonel pardons her levy. This caused difference as she got older since there was no printed record of this information. During the two years after her father’s death the only person that left the house was a Negro man that went to get her provisions and tended to the house. As time passed, Miss Emily’s neighbors began to notice a stinking smell coming from her house. The judge refused to do anything about it, so men of the town would put down lime around her house late at night. The smell gone after a few weeks.
