Here is your new set of questions for working on “A Rose for Emily”:
Read the story closely at least once (better twice!), paying special attention to the handling of time and the unfolding of action and events. Take notes of anything you find particular in regard to these aspects.
Then try to find answers to the following questions:
- What is the chain of events in Faulkner’s story and how are these arranged?
- From what point in time is the story narrated and what is the relation of that point in time to the events related in the course of the story? Do you notice anything remarkable in the span of time covered?
- How does the handling of time affect the reading of the story?
- What kind of narrative perspective do we encounter in the story, and what effects does it have?
- How is the narrative perspective related to the handling of time?
Take notes on these issues and try to edit them to turn them into one cohesive commentary on the text – which you them may enter in the comment box below.
