Storytime: "A Rose for Emily" by Faulkner
1. Listen and follow along as Ms. Kutzner reads "A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner (483-90).
2. As you listen, pay attention to Faulkner's use of setting and imagery. Record your thoughts and observations in your reading guide, text, or on post-it notes in your text.
-->On Wednesday, you will take a quiz on both Faulkner and Hemingway. Part of that quiz will be to create a thesis statement you could use for an essay about this story on the following Q3 prompt:
2006...Many writers use a country
setting to establish values within a work of literature. For example, the
country may be a place of virtue and peace or one of primitivism and ignorance.
Choose a novel or play in which such a setting plays a significant role. Then
write an essay in which you analyze how the country setting functions in the
work as a whole. Do not merely summarize the plot.
