The story is Faulkner's best example of these forms because it contains unimaginably dark images: a decaying mansion, a corpse, a murder, a mysterious servant who disappears, and, most horrible of all, necrophilia — an erotic or sexual attraction to corpses.

I. THEORY Negative Knowledge Model by Theodor Wiesengrund Adorno Adorno’s own view is that art and reality stand at a distance from each other and that this distance gives ‘the work of art a vantage-point from which it can criticize actuality’ (Adorno 1977:160). He said, this critical distance comes from the fact that literature has its own ‘formal laws’. The first law is the ‘procedure and techniques’ which in modern art ‘dissolve the subject matter and reorganize it’ (1977:153). Second...
