    The concept of death to some is a sad incident. For Emily Dickenson it was the only way to escape her feelings of hurt, loss and loneliness.

  • Only Way Emily
    530 words
    A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner is a unique piece of literature. It has a plot which seems somewhat bland, and it is not particularly exciting. However, the ending is quite suprising, and for me it made the story worth reading. I think there are some interesting aspects of this story if you look at it from a feminist point of view. The feminist movement has attempted to elevate the status of the woman to a level equal with men. Feminists have fought for the right of women to be free from th...
