Born in Victoria, British Columbia in 1871, Emily Carr had a passion and natural talent for art from a very young age. At the age of 8 she took a piece of charcoal from the fire place, ripped open a paper sack and decided she would draw the family dog, the piece impressed her father, it was later found in his belongings signed by Emily age 8. Her father would become a big influence into her artistic explorations. The youngest of 5 sisters, Carr was a favorite of her family, especially her father. She would walk with him to and from work each day and assist him in gardening at the family home. During this time she would take in the landscapes, colours, lines and shapes that composed her surroundings.
Although constantly encouraged in her youth, Carr did not professionally pursue her artistic talent until she was a teenager. Following the death of her parents and to escape living under her sister’s strict rules, Carr moved to California to attend the San Francisco Art Institute.

After returning back to British Columbia she lived in Vancouver and taught at the Ladies Art Club, unfortunately due to her rude behaviour of smoking and cursing at her students she became unpopular and her classes began to be boycotted by the students, she only held the position for a month.

The term "death" refers to someone who is dying or had been killed, basically someone who is at the end of their life. But, to Miss Emily, "death" has a different meaning. "Death" to Miss Emily is when someone is still living their life, even though they are skeletons. Miss Emily keeps dead bodies because she does not ever see death for what it is. She does not think they are dead. In "A Rose for Emily", the theme of control is shown through Emily's interaction with her father in her youth, as well as in Emily's controlling of death.
For Carr, the Canadian art scene seemed to be disjointed; she felt that Canadian art was not capturing the mood of the Canadian landscape. In searching for new inspiration Carr was accepted to the San Francisco Art School and studied for five years in 1899-1895 learning “portraiture, design, landscape, and drawing from plaster casts.” Although these techniques aided Carr in her paintings, she still felt something lacked. Carr then set her sights on Europe for their “New Art.” In 1899 Carr traveled to London and studied at the Westminster School of Art where she learned to pain in the Romantic European landscape style. Here, Carr learned techniques more suited to her style of landscape but she still felt that it was not enough to capture the essence of the Canadian wilderness. Undeterred, Carr looked again for new techniques. Learning that London was not to her taste Carr turned her attention to Paris, the home of many modern art movements. In 1910 Carr began to study in Paris. Paris was the most transformative learning experience for Carr. In Paris, Carr came in contact with new modernist painters like those of the fauvists. Fauvism was a French style of painting that took an analytical approach to subjects and the expressive qualities of saturated and non-naturalistic colours. Finally, Carr felt like she had found a style that could express the grandeur of Canada. Returning to Canada in 1911 Carr used the expressive qualities of the fauves within her landscapes. Unfortunately, the Canadian art scene did not positively receive this new fauvist inspired art. Plagued with economic problems, and a feeling of alienation, Emily Carr abstained from painting for fifteen years, until she came in contact with the Canadian Group of Seven. The Group of Seven, a Canadian group of seven landscape painters were, like Carr,

Like many famed writers such as Confucius or Voltaire; Dickinson’s writings weren’t popularized for another century, when she and Walt Whitman grew to be known as the best 19th Century poets. The writer was born in December of 1830 to a devoutly Christian family in Amherst, Massachusetts. It was around the time of her birth that the transcendentalist movement exploded, and perhaps this is why she became so reclusive. It is also speculated that Dickinson suffered a romantic disappointment around this time, which is believed to also be why she retreated to such a secluded lifestyle, where she was left alone to her thoughts and writings. She withdrew from society in her teens and her only contact with others was through letters. Similarly to Lao Tzu and Henry David Thoreau, Dickinson became fascinated with nature. It was for a long duration of time that Emily’s work was entirely unrecognized and unknown.
William Faulkner is a well-known author, whose writing belongs in the Realism era in the American Literary Canon. His writing was influence by his Southern upbringing, often setting his stories in the fictional Southern town, Yoknapatawpha County. “A Rose for Emily” was one of Faulkner’s first published pieces and displays many of the now signature characteristics of Faulkner’s writing. The short story provides commentary through the use of many symbols.
