This paper discusses the different imagery used by William Faulkner in his story, A Rose for Emily.
This paper is a critical analysis of the portrayal of women in William Faulkner’s, `A Rose for Emily` Using examples from the book, the writer discusses society’s impossible ideal for women, and demonstrates of religious imagery in the story also serves to propagate this image of women. Some of the examples used include how Emily is presented to the readers and how she is transformed from virginal, to tainted once her affair is revealed. According to the paper, Faulkner was attempting to illustrate how unrealistic expectations and demands placed upon women, in this case, Emily, lead to loneliness, isolation and even murder.
Emily takes compensation a step further by murdering Homer to prevent him from leaving her. Even though the townspeople suspect Homer’s demise, they do nothing about it. The reason for this is touched upon (as well as the foreshadowing Homer’s death) when they excuse her for trying to keep the decaying body of her father, We did not say she was crazy then. We believed she had to do that. We remembered all the young men her father had driven away, and we knew that with nothing left, she would have to cling to that which had robbed her, as people will. (Faulkner, 1992, 3).
Personal Property Crimes
Kevin Whalling, Chief Counsel for the Whalling Law Group, PLLC, has been hired to act as defense counsel for Mr. Bill Carson.
Mr. Carson was arrested recently by the Phoenix Police Department for armed robbery. While a customer of a local convenience store was attempting to get back into her vehicle, Mr. Carson threatened the customer with a revolver, stating that he would shoot her unless she gave Mr. Carson her purse and wallet. Mr. Carson fled on foot and was quickly caught by patrolling police officers.
Because Mr. Whalling normally practices property and maritime law, he would like you to prepare a Memorandum of Law addressing personal property crimes.
Remember that this is an internal memorandum for Mr. Whalling; while his job is to support Mr. Carson, you can provide an objective analysis concerning personal property crimes.
