What is William Faulkner's 'A Rose for Emily' about?

A Rose for Emily is about a woman who was going to be jilted by a suitor (who was a carpetbagger) and she kills him. She keeps the corpse in her bed and the secret is kept by her house servant until she dies. Somebody discovers her secret, and discovers what she has done.

It is not until the very end of the story until the reader actually understand what she has done.
