Ricky Huff Eng 123 T8 032300 Argument 3 Change Within every group culture or society a constant change is occurring Every individual is evolving into something different and because of this alteration within every individual the entire group undergoes a change Each part of the overall unit pushes and pulls on the other independent parts everyone and everything is intertwined The author William Faulkner through his short story A Rose For Emily addresses this issue He uses his characters to address the dynamics of change within a certain society and more specifically the Deep South in the early 1900s The author focuses his attention on three main characters Miss Emily the Negro manservant and the town Faulkners A Rose For Emily is about the story of a town struggling to move forward At first glance the reader would see on e main character Miss Emilys the anchor to the past and the one who inhibits the town from change But is she really the one holding them back Many times she is set in her ways and refuses to budge on certain matters and at these times she is the one holding them back But there are many other times when she is not the biggest opponent to change Instead unknowingly it is the town itself which is restricting its own growth On the surface they preach that change is the key but deep down inside the towns people want to hold onto the traditions honor and ways of their past As the story progresses these two opposing forces are in a constant tug-of-war they push and pull on one another When the Town is trying to move forward Miss Emily is the one holding them back When Miss Emily is willing to m9ve forward then the town does not t ake advantage Instead they try and keep it the same way it has always been On the outside they proclaim a need for change
