Emily fell against the brick wall of a school building. She closed her
eyes and pondered about everything that had happened that day. The sun
was coming dappled through the autumn coloured oak trees, which stood
around the school and carried on down the avenue. A wisp of cold wind
blew Emily’s soft dark brown hair across her dazzling green eyes; she
brushed it away. Her two best friends were running towards her. Emily
picked up her satchel up off the gravel path and ran to meet them.
“I’ll see you two, tomorrow”, said Emily as Bethany and Megan got on
“Alright”, said Megan her blue eyes glittering in the autumn sun, her
honey blonde hair that hung just below her shoulder blades in sleek
angel curls blowing in the light autumn breeze.. All three of them had
been friends since play school and become inseparable at primary

Emily made her way along the avenue, the thought of last night still

coloured leaves falling off in the gentle wind, stroking her arms and

caught in her brown hair, “Very funny Dale!” she snapped pulling the
golden leaves out of her hair and brushing them off her sactual.
“It was, wasn’t it?” Dale laughed.

- William Faulkner’s short story “A Rose for Emily” is a famous example of what some critics call the “Southern gothic” genre, in which the close-knit qualities and antiquated customs of a Southern community lead to aberrant , sometimes grotesque behavior. There is a voyeuristic aspect to these stories, as though the reader is invited to observe the bizarre nature of aspects of life and belief in the South. Of course, the observation of ‘exotic’ customs is not enough to explain Emily’s beliefs and motivations for her bizarre and transgressive acts – murdering her lover and then living with his corpse for many years....

- Unlike most American authors, Emily Dickinson was a quiet, reclusive woman of the 1800’s. She wasn’t known as a poet until several years after her death, however she is considered to be one of the great American poets (“Emily Dickinson-Biography.”).
