    Obviously, A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner is better. Very few people know Wilaim Faulkner loved tulips and hated Roses. His wife was a marigold freak. It's surprising his children turned out as good as they did because of the Faulkner's strange flower liking combination. Emily was a vegan who ate flowers dunked in sugar water. She developed rotten teeth and eventually had to have them all pulled. Her second child washed dishes on Thursdays for Jamie Brendan.

    That is what your teacher asked you to decide. You need to read all three, evaluate them with the criteria (guide lines or instructions) your teacher gave you, and then write your essay.
