    1. William Cuthbert Faulkner was a Nobel Prize winning American novelist and short story writer One of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, his reputation is based mostly on his novels, novellas, and short stories He was also a published poet and an occasional screenwriter.The majority of his works are based in his native state of Mississippi Though his work was published as early as 1919, and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner was relatively unknown until receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, for his powerful and artistically unique contribution to the modern American novel Faulkner has often been cited as one of the most important writers in the history of American literature Faulkner was influenced by the european modernism, and employed the Stream of consciousness in several of his novels.

    2. If you've never read anything by William Faulkner, read this story.I first read Faulkner's classic "A Rose for Emily" in college years ago. Initially I just dropped a 4 star rating on it and left it at that. But then something happened. A few friends liked my rating, and this story kept stealing back into my mind like Homer Barron sneaking in through Emily's back door, and making itself at home in my head, an uninvited and a little bit uncomfortable guest.So I starting doing a little research on [...]

    3. A classic, literary short story that will give you the ultimate creeps. A Rose for Emily is a dark, disturbing but strongly evocatively written tale rich in symbols, ironies and vivid imagery and remarkably depicts the consequences of living in and wanting to preserve one’s glorious past. You can read the short story here.

    4. 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.The second William Faulkner short story I have read turned out to be an absolute success. On diverting, brief eight pages, Faulkner manages to introduce his readers to the character of Miss Emily Grierson, a woman marked by loneliness and bitterness. This story deals [...]

    5. Faulkner's classic short story was first published in 1930 in The Forum, his first story to be published in a national magazine. At the time it didn't bring him much commercial success, nor did his now famous novels, The Sound and the Fury (1929), and As I Lay Dying (1930). That success would come later in his career with two Pulitzer Prize winning novels, A Fable (1954), and The Reivers (1962), along with the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949.A Rose for Emily is the tragic story of Miss Emily [...]

    7. William Faulkner's A Rose for Emily: The Town as Narrator and AccompliceThis classic Southern gothic story was chosen as a Moderators' Choice for members ofOn the Southern Literary Trailfor October, 2014.WHEN Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at least ten [...]

    8. This is a short story - not at all a "book" - and I found a version online. Quick read and creepy! It's interesting how people will look the other way when they know something is wrong or someone is up to no good, as a show of "respect." It's also interesting to me how Emily clings to tradition - the structure she has always known - instead of breaking free, into the unknown. She holds onto her father's corpse as a way of resisting changes to her life. She becomes a recluse. She even kills the m [...]

    9. "A Rose for Emily" was an enjoyable Southern Gothic short story. In a series of flashbacks, the narrator tells the reader about Emily's life. Emily was alone in the world because her father had driven away all her suitors. There were few roles open to women other than being a wife and mother in the early 20th Century. She later meets a Northerner, but "he was not a marrying man," and disappeared. We see the world move on as the reclusive Emily remains stuck in traditional times in a changing Sou [...]

    10. This wasn't really recommended to me by Aj. My curiosity just got the best of me after reading Aj's short but informative review here and Rachel's review.I honestly have to read this short story twice for the story to actually sink in. I didn't know where the story was about or where it will lead to at first everything started to make sense the more you delve into the story, but I just have to read it again - to know if there were some clues and hints out there I missed before the genius Faulkne [...]

    11. واقعا چه داستان کوتاه غافل گیر کننده ای بود ! فقط انتهاش رو سه بار خوندم تا از بهت در بیام و هضم کنم که چی شده و امیلی چه دلباخته ی خودخواهی بوده که دست به این کار زده و سالها تونسته از همه این راز بزرگ و مخوف رو اینقدر زیرکانه پنهان کنه , نمیدونم این دیگه چه جور عشقی میتونه باشه ول [...]

    12. This is some kind of a gothic story that tells you about a woman(EMILY), from a wealthy and respectable family,and the last of her father's descendant.The story started when Emily's father died,and the only thing he left for her was the house.Being left alone,she became the "talk" of her neighbors,"at last,the once envied was now the pitied".This is the shortest horrifying story I've ever read so far,and I must say it was well-written.Others may say the story was pointless but for me,it was a go [...]

    13. ❎ DON'T BE DECEIVED BY THE TITLE. NO ONE'S GETTING ANY ROSES.I had to read this story twice to grasp it fully. But after a reading count of two, I still am not able to decipher who the hell the speaker is. And yes, this bothers me slightly. But I'll say it, this was one beautiful - short - piece of gothic literature. The fascinating thing about the mysterious identity of the narrator is it didn't take away from the story, if anything, it yielded more intrigue and allure, causing me to be more [...]

    14. A big reason why I read writers like Faulkner is because of beautiful metaphors like this;"and the very old men--some in their brushed Confederate uniforms--on the porch and the lawn, talking of Miss Emily as if she had been a contemporary of theirs, believing that they had danced with her and courted her perhaps, confusing time with its mathematical progression, as the old do, to whom all the past is not a diminishing road but, instead, a huge meadow which no winter ever quite touches, divided [...]

    15. Summary:A splendid noir and brief tale of the life of an recluse American Southern elderly woman named Emily Grierson who had died. Emily was an eccentric woman who might be characterized as stubborn and who certainly lived her life on her own terms. As a woman in her thirties, she had become estranged from her family and about then her only living housemate, her father, had died leaving her alone. In the past, there had been gossip that she'd marry a man by the name of Homer Barron. Unfortunate [...]

    16. A sad, disturbing tale. You want to open all the windows in the house after reading it.This was my second Faulkner. I don’t enjoy him. I get a bad feeling while I’m reading, a feeling I keep trying to shrug off. But it turns out I can’t, and the story makes itself at home inside my head and refuses to leave. I read "As I Lay Dying" many years ago, and can still hear old Anse muttering. Now Emily and her loved ones are in there too. *shudder* I guess it’s time for me to give in and accept [...]

    17. "A ROSE FOR EMILY" is my first experience with Faulkner, and it was quite a beginning! This short story is darkly atmospheric in its descriptive prose of the dusty, smelly and decaying old mansion in which Emily lives in seclusion, and high on the "ICK" factor by the shocking conclusion.Poor lonely Emily thoughI felt so sorry for her having a mean old father who turns away all her suitorsbut eventuallyEmily does find(view spoiler)[.d forever keepsa man of her own. (hide spoiler)]So glad I notice [...]

    18. Thank youTadiana for providingthis link to this little shorty that I haven't read in 14 years.I first read this in high school, and it is the first, and still only, Faulkner I have ever read. Faulkner has always been this kind of presence in my life. Like a long-lost uncle who is always kind of looking out for me, and remains a lingering presence, but who is intimidating, and just a little bit scary. And for those reasons, I've just never been able to warm up to Faulkner, but appreciate his ling [...]

    19. A Rose for Emily is classic Faulkner, and truly Faulkner at his finest. His recurring theme of (view spoiler)[the slow death of the old South, its isolation and its antiquated class divisions, is at the heart of this tale, where death is everywhere. At the outset of the story we learn that Miss Emily is dead; while relating the details of her life, we learn that her father dies and leaves her alone to navigate a world in which she has barely learned to live; she withdraws into herself only to be [...]

    20. Donne sfregiate ma non arrese3 racconti3 donneUna scrittura potentecontundente.Emily, con i suoi altezzosi occhi neri e i capelli color grigio ferro , che di tanto in tanto si vedeva ad una delle finestre del pianterreno che ci guardava oppure non ci guardava, era impossibile dirlo.

    21. حالا که بایس بری برو . اما علتش را من نمی فهمم و هیچ وقت هم نمی خوام بفهمم . دیگه از من انتظار فهمیدنشو نداشته باش .

    22. The story, published in 1930, takes place in Faulkner's fictional town Jefferson, Mississippi, and begins with the main character Emily Grierson's funeral, and flashbacks of her life, narrated by neighbors that never got to know her. Emily is a member of the Southern aristocracy. After the Civil War, the family continues to live as before, ignoring the hardship and that the house is falling apart. They deny that they are anything else than aristocracy, and Emily turns down proposals because of t [...]

    23. This short story is sad and macabre but unfortunately timeless and realistic. A town watches the decay caused by mental illness as they are unequipped to provide any real help.

    24. خلاصه داستان : میس امیلی گریرسن ، دختر یک خانواده متمول و بانفوذ پس از مرگ پدر تنها می شود؛ تنهایی او چنان است که ترحم همسایگان را برانگیخته است ؛ اما آنان تنها به جمله ای درباره او بسنده می کنند: "بیچاره امیلی ". امیلی با هیچ کس در ارتباط نیست ، جز نوکر پیر سیاهپوستی که معجونی از [...]

    25. در داستان گل سرخی برای امیلی با این مضامین سروکار داریم: سنت، تغییر، تنهایی، پذیرش، انزوا و رها کردن. داستان از زاویه دید اول شخص و توسط یک راوی نامشخص روایت می شود. از همان ابتدای داستان خواننده متوجه می شود که مضامینی همچون سنت و تغییر مد نظر ویلیام فاکنر بوده است. به تدریج در [...]

    26. Faulkner, le donne e la solitudine"Una rosa per Emily" è una raccolta di tre racconti scritti negli anni '20 da William Faulkner. Che cosa hanno in comune? Sono tutti ambientati nella gretta provincia americana degli anni ’50, dove vige l’educazione puritana e la mentalità che una donna per essere tale deve trovare marito a tutti i costi. In questo mondo quasi surreale, gli uomini sono tutti comparse senza spessore, vagabondi, delinquenti, mentre spiccano le tre protagoniste femminili fort [...]

    27. Revisited after 20 years because I wanted to compare to a short story written by William Gay, The Paperhanger. I definitely like shock factor in literature. Faulkner perfected this story.

    28. This is an extremely atmospheric and downright creepy short story. It makes me believe that I can learn to love Faulkner. A Rose for Emily

    29. Sheesh! I read this a thousand years ago and loved it. We just finished a book in one of my good reads groups that reminded me of this, but I found Love in a Dry Season to fall short of this mark.

    30. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 إحراق الحظيرةالحقد الطبقيتلك النار المتأججة في النفوس عندما تتحول إلى حريق يأكل الحظائر في مجتمع فلاحي يبدو فيه مستوى العيش متباينا أشد التباين. كتب في بداية هذه القصة أن هناك من إعتبرها صرخة في وجه النظام الرأس المالي و أن هناك من إعتبرها صرخة في وجه النظام الأبوي. [...]

    31. یادم میاد توی کتابی مصاحبه نجف دریابندری رو خوندم که توش نوشته بود یک گل سرخ برای امیلی جزو اولین ترجمه هاش بوده که بعد از سال ها وقتی دوباره رفته خونده با خودش فکر کرده که چه ترجمه فاجعه ایه! :)) به خاطر همین من از اولی که داستان ترجمه رو خوندم روی ضعف هاش کلید نکردم چون می دونستم [...]
