Two Faulkner Stories

A Rose for Emily was published in 1930, four years before Faulkner completed Absalom, Absalom!. Carcassone first appeared in 1931 in a short story collection that also contained A Rose for Emily. I post these because I think they serve as a good warm up for Absalom, Absalom!, in terms of shared themes, story props, and style.
