Warm Up

Some examples
Allusion: Watching that 17 year old quarterback is like watching Peyton Manning
Irony: Everything goes wrong today. At the end of the day, you say. "My day was great!"
Metaphor: Life is an ocean; Love is a war.

From here, let's define the vocabulary from your first short story, "A Rose for Emily." You have 20 minutes.
Now, let's get into our first short story, "A Rose for Emily." I asked about money in the warm up because money impacts the actions of the characters in this text.
Let's start by watching a short video about the author, William Faulkner. Answer the questions that you see on your paper.
