“Barn Burning” and “A Rose for Emily”

- There exist a sort of algorithm in sorting these issues, leading to the element of communism.
- At one instance, people will strive to create their world to solve some challenges.
- The process is never appealing and might make individuals lose the societal ties.
- In the two stores, the protagonists strive to resist change, and the end is always murder as well as the destruction of property.
- Even though these characters were divergent on the element of social class, they still had the same problems, and their ways of solving such issues also remained the same to some extent.
- The society dictates some things, and the two stories outline the influence of the father. Emily could not date, and that resulted for the thirst for love as well as security.
- Remaining rigid in life is indeed detrimental
- That was evident through the death of Barron
- The result was never appealing since Emily had to live with the corpse. The society presents a number of choices and the main thing should be the ability to take responsibility.
The world continues to evolve and it is imperative to eliminate the mythical aspect of living. People should embrace change and give room for modernization. The belief system simply gives space for learning and sharing for a better tomorrow.
