The Story of “A Rose for Emily’ brings out the fact that young males had issues with their relationships as it was seen of Homer Barron whom Emily had totally fallen in love with but he did not display his interest in her. He seemed to get involved in other kinds of joys such as relationships with other men as well as spending his nights drinking outside with the same men. The author for this story served in the military but had a high interest in writing articles that would prove to be very creative and interesting to the reader.

In ‘A Good Man is Hard to Find’, the grandmother has an antagonist who is the son that is not interested in anything that she said. The mother to the boy also seemed to have the same attitude towards the old woman.

The story also brings out the aspect of the woods whereby there is a part that indicates that Bobby Lee got out of the woods and stood at the ditch as he watched the grandmother who lay in a pool of blood. The journey that they took initially also seemed to be taking quite a long time hence it means that they would travel through roads to the rural areas in the state or even a different one. The story takes place in the 19the century. The story about Emily takes place in a more advanced setting maybe in the 20th century because of the description that exists such as the dress code, way of living and the description of their houses as well. The decorations of the house also bring out the tie period of the setting of this story in particular. It is said that the house was decorated with spires as well as cupolas that filled the balcony. The sue of some words such as the negro brings out the fact that the story happened in the earlier years since then the use of the word Negro was still highly acceptable by the society and widely used as well.

Some choose to try and use some form of dialogue so as to get the important points across while some seems to give up and choose to end their lives so as to run away from the conflict which is impending.

The theme of the ‘It’s Hard to find a good man story, brings out the idea that society has changed over time and that the old notion that older and mature people had the power to make decisions for the younger generation has been eroded. The grandmother is quite unnoticed and it seems like her family do not care whether she dies or lives. According to their words, there would be no difference whether the woman lives or dies. The grandmother called Bailey boy out of concern when she heard gunshots fill the air. The religious nature of the older generations is brought across especially when the grandmother becomes disturbed by the words of the Misfit and suggests that the people should all start to pray instead. She also emphasized the word pray so much showing how important that move was to her. The story also brings about the lack of morals that the younger generations had. The Misfit claims that he had been married twice, worked as an undertaker and even having seen a man being burnt alive. The Misfit continued to say that he found out that crime did not matter and that anyone can do the unacceptable actions to others such as murder or other destructive activities since in the long run, the same might also happen to anyone whether innocent or guilty or whether they are deserving or not. He speaks in a manner that depicts that he really does not have empathy and regret for these actions. To him all these events seemed quite normal. This brings out the pessimistic attitude of the people especially those who seemed to have been undergoing difficult times during their normal lives. The theme of a rose for Emily is such that relationships are known to have a strong effect on people no matter how strong they appear to be. This is evidenced by the fact that Emily got in a position whereby she could not contain herself and was even forced to lock herself for years in her own house. Both stories bring out the fact that there has been a decline in the morality of the society since people seem to accept vices into their lives and chose to live a life that does not observe proper rules and acceptable behavior.
