We also see that whenever Lester thinks of Angela, he thinks of her in a bed of rose petals, covered with rose petals.

    What, me a rose photographer? No, I am a botanist, plant physiologist and plant pathologist. At least that is all that I thought I was until 24 years ago when my passion for the beautiful roses led me on a slightly different journey to an evacuation in rose photography. It has been an interesting and rewarding trek, but perhaps I should start at the very beginning. Many, many eons ago, when I was 6 years old, my mother helped me plant my first rose. She instilled in me a love for all types of…

Right from the beginning of the story, Faulkner establishes an assertion of women in the way he describes Miss Emily. Through a feminist…
