All I have to say about A Rose for Emily is that she was a crazy person! Faulkner is a really worthy and famous writer that has a lot to say in his writings and I think that he accomplishes that when he writes. “On December 10, he delivered his acceptance speech to the academy in a voice so low and rapid that few could make out what he was saying, but when his words were published in the newspaper the following day, it was recognized for its brilliance; in later years, Faulkner’s speech would be lauded as the best speech ever given at a Nobel ceremony.” (Padgett) When William Faulkner gave his Nobel Acceptance Speech he had a quote in there and I think that he helped man endure by lifting ...view middle of the document...

In A Rose for Emily William Faulkner referenced some things that he thought was the duty of the writer that he included in his story in his Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech like when he shows how you can have courage, honor, hope, pride and compassion throughout the entire writing. There were a lot of different emotions that were represented in this selection, but Faulkner didn't tell us that the characters were angry he used details to show us people’s emotions. “Try to be better than yourself. An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why.

People who pitied her did that on their own she didn't go begging for it. He is also saying that if this would have happened to another person they would have made a big stink about it.
