Emily had trouble letting go of her loved ones in the short story and due to this insecurity she went mad in A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner After her father passed away the thought of strangers coming to take her father away from her was too much for her to handle 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 dead428 When people gave her their condolences she would reject them as a result of denying the otherwise obvious truth Her fathers death was a traumatic experience and ever since that day she had problems letting go and would be scared to lose another loved one Due to this psychological imbalance she decided to kill her next love Homer Barron She would then keep his body upstairs and feel emotionally secure to have him in her household Then we noticed that in the second pillow was the indentation of a head One of us lifted something from it and leaning forward that faint and invisible dust dry and acrid in the nostrils we saw a long strand of iron-gray hair432 She would not keep him upstairs and leave him there however She would visit him every night and sleep next to him as if he were still alive Only in the last paragraph of the story would the entire picture be seen The reader only then understood why there would be that awful stench for those several weeks After a few weeks carcasses stop smelling The lime the burglars put on the ground had really not done anything for the smell Four men crossed Miss Emilys lawn and slunk about the house like burglarsThey broke open the cellar door and sprinkled lime there and in all the outbuildings427 She was definitely medically crazy for killing her love with rat poison and sleeping next to him
