William Faulkner (25/9/1887-6/7/1962) is a special phenomenon of American literature twentieth century. He has never ranked higher than his real stature in the realm of literature, but Faulkner is an American giant. A famous writer from the Mississippi, William Faulkner is the world regarded as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Amazing! A man, who never graduated from high school, has never earned a college degree, has lived in a small province, in a state of America's poorest country, and in a poor family has written a series of successful work brilliant. In his life, he has written a lot of famous stories, one of them is “A rose For Emily”, it was the story I studied in high school, I have read and read it over and over again in high school to understand its meaning .It is not kind of story that we read once and know clearly about it. There are many things to discuss about “A rose For Emily” but I’m interested in writing about three things that have been impressed me in this story since high school : Anaerobic or space conscious waiver by Emily, Art of time , the horror elements and the size of the legendary character of Emily .
II. Anaerobic or space conscious waiver by Emily
Art space is a quintessential part of Faulkner's stories. Emily Rose's short stories build a unique art space, a legendary space. Jefferson is a village which appears in most of his work. In this village, the little house of Emily is very special. It is the oldest house remaining. The house has no number and is always closed. Moreover, it has bad odor. That house or should we call it an anaerobic space, when a person walks in, he always feels smother. As we know, character, lifestyle, thinking and actions of human are affected by their living space strongly. If living spaces are fresh, people in it will be lovely, more liberal. An unusual space with lack of vitality threatens the survival. Only Emily, the owner of the house felt normal. It is not just a house but rather a living grave. It was her own world, the world of death. On the upstairs of the house had a closed room where the last forty years no one knew there was a dead body: Emily-lover Homer Barron. Art space filled with anaerobic, closed it portrayed the tragedy of Emily. Emily is a symbol of extreme loneliness of human. To escape loneliness of herself, she withdrew into her own oasis. With her loneliness, she lost all contact wire tied to the outside world. Personality or human nature is the total harmony of social relationships. Emily has no relationship. As a citizen, Emily cannot afford to pay the annual land tax so she kept repeating that "I have no taxes in Jefferson". As an individual she does not have any friends. She has been loved but the man had said that he was not a man of family. That was why she was alone again. We can explain that she killed her lover and lived with the body of dozens of years was the way Emily was against...
