In the story A Rose For Emily William Faulkner portrays two types of conflicts The readers through the authors eye encounter these conflicts An individual that reads this story can see the different conflicting situations that arise in this story Emilys conflicts within herself and the communitys conflicts towards her are the two main conflicts in this story The conflicts within herself are more prominent than what she had with the community she lived in Conflict within a character can deal with inner morals dreams ambitions and rights and wrongs As we read this story we realize that Emilys conflicts start as a young girl Her father who was a strict man did not let her have a healthy social life He made her an outcast in her own community This alone created most of the conflicting situations in her life after her fathers death Even after her fathers death she refused to acknowledge all the changes that were happening outside her house as the years went by The confusion that Faulkner has given produces confusion in Emilys life Emily went to and fro in the lonely circle and did not have any chance to break that circles wall Outside time was going by quickly as the natural direction But Emily was encircled inside and was still where she had been Yes Emily is a person of the past Readers have this feeling in the very first sentences through the description of Emilys house lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps This message of essential ugliness of contrast is a presentation of Emily in present time--an eyesore among eyesores During the story the conflicts of the old and young generations push Emily all the way back to the past for example she refused to pay taxes for the property when the officials contacted her she did not want to let go of her past traditions and laws
