For you first short paper, you’re going to compare and/or contrast one element in Faulkner’s “A Rose for
Emily” to the corresponding element in the film version. You are not reviewing either the book or the
movie – in other words, your paper will not be about which medium is better. Nor will you summarize
the plot of either the story or the film. Instead, you’ll evaluate something you find interesting in the text ……. …..
and discuss how it was portrayed in the film; additionally, you’ll discuss whether or not you think the
filmmakers effectively represented the element as Faulkner intended and why you’ve come to that
conclusion. Your paper should cite both the text and the movie.
You will use MLA guidelines as for both the formatting of your paper and the documentation of the
outside sources you use (in this case, probably only the text and the film). Your submission should be at
least 3 full pages in length, not including your Works Cited page. ……. …..
