This was based on a book, wasn't it?
A Rose for Emily, I'm pretty sure.

Yup.
Great one for an inspiration, too.

Emily was a girl who was controlled and manipulated by her father. She lived a pretty tragic life.

Emily fell in love with a guy named Barron. She ignored all of the gossip and she immersed herself into an affair with Barron.

Barron decided that he was going to leave Emily for all the controversy that their affair has made. After Emily knew about this, she made sure that Barron is going to be with her whether he is alive or not. She ends up killing him and she locked herself in her room with Barron's corpse which emitted a horrible smell.

^FYI
" A Rose for Emily" is about a women who is hated by everyone in her town. She eventually falls in love with a man named Homer, not Barron. He doesn't really love her back because he is a homosexual. She kills him with arsenic, sold to her by a shop clerk thinking sh ewas going to use it to kill herself. Throughout the whole story you don't know what she did with the body but at the end when she dies, a detective finds out that she kept the corpse in her bedroom and slept with it at night. I read this story in 9th grade english and watched the short movie version starring Anglica Houston. The whole class didn't catch the whole part about how she slept with the corpse at night untill the end of the movie when a few seconds after the movie ended, you could here a collective, "Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew!"

Um, first of all, Homer and Barron are the same person. Homer is the first name and Barron is the last name.

And Barron was not proved to be a homosexual.

wikipedia:
A Rose for Emily
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from A rose for emily)

A Rose for Emily, a short story by William Faulkner first published on April 30, 1930, is distinctive its unusual use of first-person plural point of view and non-chronological ordering of episodes. This (at the time) controversial story took place in Yoknapatawpha County, an often revisited setting of Faulkner's.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
A Rose for Emily recounts the story of an eccentric spinster, Emily Grierson. An unnamed narrator details the strange circumstances of Emily’s life and her odd relationships with her father who controlled and manipulated her, her lover Homer Barron, the townspeople of Jefferson who gossip about her, and her horrible secret. In her upstairs room, she hides all day in Barron's corpse, which explains the horrid stench that emits from Miss Emily's house.

The story’s complexities inspired critics while casual readers found the work one of Faulkner’s most accessible (and shortest) works. The popularity of the story was due in no small part to its gruesome ending.

Faulkner based the story upon a true incident. A good friend of his, Emily Grierson of Oxford, invited a gentleman in her home to live with the promise of marriage. After a few months, or perhaps a year or more, he decided she was not his cup of tea. He told her he was leaving and she bade him goodbye. And that was where the story ended until word reached Mr. Faulkner. As a token of his esteem, he wrote "A Rose for Emily" and presented this to her. This was, in Faulkner's mind, a most fitting way to revenge the heartache Homer Barron heaped upon his good friend. The rose indeed was for his friend, Emily Grierson. Thus there were two versions: the real life version and Faulkner's fictional account.

The story explores many themes, including the society of the South at that time, the role of women in the South, and extreme psychosis.

In the story, the townspeople's points of views on Emily actually reflect the society's value at that moment to some extent. Although the townspeople don't have direct contact with Emily, their views on her and her family greatly affect her life. Their praises and admiration influence her father to keep her sheltered longer than she actually needs to be. Her father controls her thoughts and lifestyle. Emily feels that she is released when her father is dead. She dives into love with Homer and neglects people's judgments on her. When she realizes that Homer intends to leave her again, she makes sure that he would always be with her, whether he is alive or not. In his death Emily finds eternal love which is something no one could ever take away from her.

But, it eluded to the fact that he was homosexual.

The movie sucked...it didn't even match the short story. No

good point, but I believe the song WAS written about the story.

And if you want to actually read the story and decide for yourself, read it here.

And as an add on, she killed him with arsenic not cyanide, as it states in the song/.

But honestly, cyanide rolls off the tongue better. Haha.

Before I knew it was about a book, I thought it was about:

a girl wanted to be together forever with this guy but he was gay ("...he's always looking at men..."Wink and had drug issues but she didn't know he was gay and she thought he would love her until they died. And other stuff like that, that's hard to explain in words.
