  • Home Of Miss Emily Grierson
    669 words
    Fallen Monuments by Katie Myers In A Rose For Emily by William Faulkner, the home of Miss Emily Grierson is described and used as a symbol of the decay and deterioration of her own physical state. The characteristics of Miss Emily's home are parallel to her own physical appearance. Through the description of the home, Faulkner helps to clarify Grierson's character and provide a more detailed image of who Emily Grierson is. Miss Emily Grierson's home, once a big, squarish frame house decorated wi...

    498 words
    Emily Bronte was born in Thornton on July 30, 1818 and later moved with her family to Haworth, an isolated village on the moors.

  • Jessup About The Boggart
    867 words
    Have you ever wondered how great it would be to inherit a castle in Scotland? What if it was haunted by a sprit called a Boggart? The book I read called The Boggart by Susan Cooper is a story based on something like that happening. The main story takes place in Toronto, Canada. The Volink family inherited a castle in Scotland from Mr. Mc Devon the mother's uncle. The two children in the story are Emily and Jessup. Emily is the oldest. She is smart brave and very sensitive towards the Boggart, on...
  • Biography Of Emily Bronte
    391 words
    The biography of Emily Bronte is very concise. She remains enigmatic because so little is known about her, and what is known is contradictory. She only produced one novel and a little bit of poetry, which gives one very little upon which to build. Most of how Emily is seen is through the eyes of her sister, Charlotte, another well known author. From the information available, her life seemed to be of "dreary conformity". In some ways, Emily led an ordinary life of a nineteenth century female, at...
  • Symbolic For Emilys Past Her Mother
    1,149 words
    Tom Penny Approaches Paper #2 The story, I Stand Here Ironing, contains binary oppositions which work together to support the structure of the text. I listed several of these oppositions in my notes, but I am only going to discuss a few that I found were connected to each other throughout the story. These oppositions are: the past vs. the present, a healthy Emily vs. an un-healthy Emily, Emily with an appetite vs. Emily without an appetite, and a loving parent vs. a non-loving parent. These oppo...
  • Colonel Sartoris Remission Of Emily's Taxes
    700 words
    Often in society, preconceived notions and ideas obscure facts. Many people believe things on the basis of tradition, rather than relying on signs that say otherwise. In William Faulkner's short story, "A Rose For Emily", the town allowed Emily to get away with murder because their attitude toward her blinded them from obvious clues. Viewed as a "fallen monument" (26), Emily Grierson was put on a pedestal by the inhabitants of Jefferson, Mississippi. Since Colonel Sartoris remitted her taxes aft...
  • Chronological Way Of The Story
    731 words
    A rose for Emily William Faulkner When I first read this story I did not understand everything. Only the most important things and the use of time was clear to me. But when we discussed the story in class I could explain some things for myself and I knew the chronological way of the story. When I had read the story again all became clear to me. First I will tell about Emily's character and in what way she deserves admiration and in what way she can be pitied. Then I will explain the role of time...
