Fallen from Grace: "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner

Summary: First published in 1930, William Faulkner's short story "A Rose for Emily" is about Emily Grierson, a Southern woman who was irreparably shaken by the fall of the Confederacy and the ensuing changes that took place in her life. Raised to be a lady of stature and nobility, and instilled by her father with the belief that no man in the area was worthy of marrying her, Emily was alone after her father's death. Following the end of a courtship that her family and the townspeople opposed, Emily lived reclusively until her death, holding on to what she knew best and struggling with her loneliness.
