William Faulkner used plot in 'A Rose for Emily' with a unique setup unlike many writers. He begins with a conflict that happened before the main conflict in the story and many of the main events are all jumbled up in between.

I think you could pick several themes out of this story... perhaps a typical "man versus society" theme would work... although in this case "eccentric, upper-class woman versus small town" would work better. :) Emily faces down the town on several occasions, and triumphs, as far as that theme goes.…

One example of symbolism in A Rose For Emily is Emily's house. It is the only remaining emblem of a dying world, also representing alienation and mental illness. The strand of hair is also a symbol, used as a reminder for love lost, and the things people will do in order to achieve happiness.

The point of view in 'A Rose for Emily' is that of the first person, or perhaps more accurately, first persons, since the narrator is not a single person. The narrator uses the plural 'we" so it is obvious that the "narrator" is actually perhaps the town itself speaking as one.
