“A Rose for Emily”(READER RESPONSE)The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person. Said chuck Palanuick, however what if they are just one person? What if, you only love one person in your entire life and that same person is the only person who loves you also? Is that even possible? Well, William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” reassures us that, yes it is possible. “A Rose for Emily,” is a very interesting and unusual short story, I find this story very creepy and my reaction was just complete shock. The story is written backwards, meaning the reader reads the future to the past, which makes it more confusing. As a reader I have to be actively reading the story or I will miss something which I did the first time reading through it.  Being written the way it was, the story gives more frightening feeling that attracts the reader in. 'A Rose for Emily' opens at the time of protagonist Emily Grierson's death. The entire community attends Emily's funeral, but no one really knew Emily. I assume that the narrator is one of the townspeople. Emily seldom went out, and died alone at age 74. Her entire existence was a whole mystery for the townspeople. Emily’s father sheltered her a lot as a child. She wasn’t allowed to do much of anything. She was always expected to behave nobly since her family   was part of the aristocrat’s. By the time of her father’s death the town felt bad for Emily. Also, out of respect for Emily's deceased father, the town made an exemption for Emily in paying the town’s taxes. All her father had left was the house. The townspeople express their condolences about her father's death however, Emily was still in denial about the issue.
