“ Miss Emily had been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town (Faulkner 299). After the passing of her father, Miss Emily was left alone all to herself, no one but her in the large house for company or security. She made no attempt at going into public for years; this made the town’s people worrisome as to if or what Miss Emily could be hiding. It gave the townspeople a sense of curiosity. When Miss Emily died after her father, the funeral took place at her house rather than a funeral home or church. This gave the town’s people the opportunity to alleviate their curiosity. “the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant—a combined gardener and cook—had seen in at least ten years” (Faulkner 299). “Besides telling us that Emily is a spinster who has not been visited in ten years, this sentence also provides important clues to the town’s attitudes toward Emily” (Heller).

Emily Dickinson describes a judgmental society in her poem “Much Madness is Divinest Sense”. Although Dickinson’s society was probably more judgmental on women wanting to be independent and not wanting to relay on man who back then was seen as the dominate being this poem still depicts an accurate society we live in today. Modern day society is so quick to judge and label what is acceptable or not even though they do not understand everything that is going on. Our extremely judgmental society will judge you on absolutely anything like political views, the food you eat, the clothes you wear, or how you do your hair.

I woke up early - too early for my liking - and remembered that today was the day that I would push my powers to there full potential. Tiredly I walked over to Autumn, who automatically locked eyes with mine as we held a long gaze. She reached up to my face with her small fragile hands and began waving them in the air like a crazy person. She must've heard me talking to Emily, who was going to babysit her whilst I was out fighting. I keep forgetting that she is a witch too, after all she acts like a normal child. And she will be until she's around 15, for the time being she will just have enhanced sences. Gently, I lifted Autumn from her crib and began to get her changed into some warm comfy clothes.

The narrator has the mothers tone change throughout the story from thinking to the past onto the present. Reflecting on her daughter Emily, she expresses “what you asked me moves tormented back and forth with the iron” (190). Further in the story she describes Emily as being this beautiful baby.

It’s almost like a blessing that she didn’t turn out to be similar to her mother but instead becomes successful person who would like to achieve more with her
Humanity has been carved, channeled, and form by the few influential elite throughout history. These are a group of closely knit alliance of military, government, and corporate officials perceived as the center of wealth and political power of their time. The “common folk” can only file through the channels, like a herd of cattle marching into their doom, which the power elite have implemented on the “common folk’s” behalf. Karl Marx saw behind capitalism's struggle between two main classes: the capitalists, who own the productive resources, and the workers or proletariat, who must work in order to survive.
