Title: A Rose for Emily Title Record # 43731
Author: William Faulkner
Date: 1930-04-30
Type: SHORTFICTION
Length: short story
Webpages: Wikipedia-EN
Language: English
Note: Although this gothic story has nothing supernatural in it, it has appeared in so many genre anthologies that it qualifies as genre for the purposes of this database. First published in The Forum, April 30, 1930.
Synopsis: Looking back from 1930, the townsfolk of Jefferson, Mississippi, recollect glimpses of the life of Emily Grierson, an elderly woman from the antebellum Southern aristocracy. After the war, she and her father continued to live as if in the past; he didn't let her marry. After her father's death, she became romantic with a Northerner newly come to town, but he said he was not the marrying type and eventually disappeared. The rest of the story chronicles Emily's archaic, aristocratic, and increasingly reclusive behavior; the full extent of her eccentricity only becomes clear after her death.
