The short story “A Rose for Emily” written by William Faulkner is a very interesting, but unusual story. The story was about a girl named Emily that had some unusual events that took place in her life. The story could be a bit confusing to the reader at first because it wasn’t written in chronological order. I definitely had to read certain parts of it more then once so that I could get a clear clarification of what was taking place in the story. The storyline started off at Emily’s funeral, then the narration proceeded to talk about her life, and ended with her death. However, as I read certain parts of the story a second time, I realized that different things had taken place in the story and I gain more clarification of what the conflict was in the story.
