- What’s Miss Emily’s problem?
This weird story seems like a good one to discuss in a Forum. For your initial post I want you to analyze Emily Grierson psychologically.
Why do you think she does the things that she does? Specifically, why does she kill Homer and then apparently keep sleeping with his body for all those years? Why does she not admit at first that her father is dead? Can you connect these incidents?
Make a convincing argument that your diagnosis of her psychological problems is correct. Don’t just say, “she’s crazy.” We can probably all agree on that. What is going on in her mind is what we’re after here, whether it’s logical or sane or not. You are the analyst and she is the patient that you need to diagnose.
Be sure to then comment on at least two other people’s posts by the end of the week.
