The story “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner utilizes a third person limited narrator. There are a few times that the narrator says “we,” implying that the narrator is either a member of the town or supposed to collectively represent the people of the town. Because of this, the narrator is unreliable, not because the narrator necessarily intends to be so, but because the limited amount of information that a limited narrator has access to. Through limited access to information, the secretive nature of the main character, and the beliefs and prejudices of the narrator/ people of the town, Faulkner created an unreliable narrator, whether he intended to or not.
