Since the label of formulaic fiction is pejorative, implying a lack of originality, one must hesitate to use it against such as William Faulkner, to be sure. Notwithstanding Faulkner’s originality, “A Rose for Emily” does fall within the genre of Southern Gothic and, thus, does have elements of genre fiction. And, since formulaic fiction is similar to genre fiction, an argument can be made.Perhaps, then, the way to rewrite “A Rose for Emily” is to employ more Gothic elements. The story does have the following elements:archetypes – The patriarchal father, Colonel Sartoristhe grotesque – Emily becomes this when her necromancy is discoveredexposition of the problems of the social order in the South, strange behaviors of Emilymorality of characters is questionablestruggle for a place in the societystory is set in a Southern town with shifting social structureOther elements that could be developed are the following:dark humor – For instance, some dark jokes about Homer Barronstream of consciousness from character as narrator/ character mentally unbalanced – For example, one section could give Emily an interior monologuethe grotesque (Emily fits this at the end) Maybe Emily could be seen somewhere outside at one timesupernatural elements – For example, the odd smell around the house could be given some added elements of supernatural nature (i.e. lightning,etc.)symbolism – see the critical essays on the link below
