William Faulkner as a great novelist in the 20th century has long been thought as a representative writer of American southern literature. And his short story A Rose for Emily has attracted extensive attention in literary circles with its distinctive narrative structure and fascinating plot. Many scholars have conducted in-depth discussions from different perspectives like writing skills, feminism research and psychological research, but so far none so much has been done from the perspective of Marxist criticism, which actually can not only provide a unique view to reveal the different fortunes of southern people that are undergoing the great social change after American Civil War but also help to uncover Faulkner’s complex emotions towards his hometown, the south of the United States.
