To begin with, one can analyze “A Rose for Emily” by examining the underlying hidden message found within the story.The hidden message that William Faulkner tried to convey in his story was the themes of death and change.

Miss Emily herself chooses not to accept the fate of death when her extremely controlling father passes away.“Miss Emily met them at the door, dressed` as usual and with no trace of grief on her face.She told them that her father was not dead” (Faulkner).This quote from A Rose for Emily clearly shows how Miss Emily tried to defy death by holding on to her father’s corpse and treating it as if he were still living and how fearful she was of change.William Faulkner once said, “Given a choice between grief and nothing, I'd choose grief” (Brainyquote).He further explains why he’d do this in “A Rose for Emily”; although the story is not about him, he details the loneliness and selfishness of a poor woman, Miss Emily.

Miss Emily is unable to grip the idea of death and suffers great deals of denial.After the death of her father, the townspeople expected her to be in a state of grief but alas she is not.Instead she proceeds to say that her father is very well with her, alive.William Faulkner’s idea of grieving is clear in this story because he shows his audience that it is better to accept death than to ignore it through the accounts of Miss Emily’s journey.William Faulkner’s story takes place in the South, during a time period of racial discrimination and major political change.By using reader response criticism, a reader can analyze “A Rose for Emily” through the aspects of the secret held within the story, race found through anthropology, and gender found through anthropology.
