Alien Abduction Analysis

Alien Abduction On November 20, 2015 I was abducted by aliens. Luckily, I was not harmed just very frightened. They were all purple with one eye and one antennae on their head. I was surrounded by them and they told me that I needed to give them all of the information I could on one of many topics. Depending on the information I provided them, they will choose to either let Earth join them or destroy Earth, so I wanted to be sure I provided them with the most knowledge I could. I decided to inform them on isolation because isolation occurring is very common and luckily I had access to many resources when I was abducted.

The main character, Emily is an older woman who does not talk to any family members and has no friends, which is why she is uncomfortable whenever she has visitors, which is not very often. This is shown when she has men come to her house asking for her to pay taxes. She claims that she does not have any taxes and to talk to Colonel Sartoris about the matter, for he is the one who told her she did not have to pay taxes. It turns out Colonel Sartoris is dead. She either knew he was alive and was just trying to get rid of the men from her house in order to return to her isolation, or she kept herself so isolated from the town that she did not know Colonel Sartoris had died. Emily’s father had kept her isolated from men her whole life. When he died, she did not visit many people, except one man named Homer. She intended on marrying him, but then she found out that he was homosexual, and she was very distraught by this which caused her to alienate herself from the rest of the town once he disappeared, except his dead corpse was actually in her bed. In “A Rose for Emily”, Faulkner wrote, “After her father’s death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all”. After her father kept her from people, mostly men, she was more comfortable being alone which is why people from the town never saw her out. Unfortunately for Emily, she was unable to be freed from her isolation because the town never went to visit her in her home. In “The Telltale Hair” by Terry Heller, he wrote, “The town attempts throughout her life to treat her as we see it treating her in the first two paragraphs of the story, as if she were dead”. He shows how the town treated her as if she was never there. Even though she was comfortable with her isolation, she was never able to be freed from it because the town never tried to save her. Emily slept next to a corpse in order to feel some companionship
