By Nicole Lau

Jahrhunderts in Amerika und ist vor allem bekannt für seine Romane The Sound and the Fury (1929), As I Lay demise (1930), gentle in August (1936) und Absalom, Absalom! (1936). Obwohl er sich selber eher als Autor für Romane sah, versuchte er sich erfolgreich am Schreiben von Kurzgeschichten, was once maßgeblich zu seinem weltweiten Erfolg beitrug: 1950 erhielt er den Nobelpreis für Literatur.
Faulkner, als geborener Südstaatler, bringt in seinen Werken die regionalen Besonderheiten seiner Heimat einwandfrei hervor und hat die Fähigkeit, spezifische Vorkommnisse universell gültig zu machen. Sein Stil und seine Erzähltechnik mögen oft verwirrend und übertrieben sein. Aber sein Ziel, den Leser zum Nachdenken anzuregen und nach der ethical und der Wahrheit in der Geschichte zu suchen, wird er dadurch erreicht und hebt seine Kurzgeschichten von der reinen Unterhaltungsliteratur ab.
Folgender Aufsatz soll nun die besonderen Stilmerkmale von William Faulkner in seiner Kurzgeschichte A Rose for Emily (1931) erörtern, wie er Sprache, Raum, Zeit, Erzählperspektive und Figuren dazu benutzt, dem Leser ein Geschehen zu vermitteln, hinter dem sich mehrere Themen verbergen. Faulkner stellt nicht nur einen Konflikt dar, sondern mehrere, die alle nicht ohne die anderen Konflikte funktionieren würden. Durch diese Komplexität schafft er eine realistische Abbildung des Lebens.
