Literary Gladiators: Episode 26- "A Rose For Emily" By William Faulkner + The 50 Subscriber Giveaway

We are up and running with the remainder of season two. In this 26th episode, Larry, Jackie, Charlie, and I discuss one of the most notable works of American Gothic literature from the 20th century in "A Rose For Emily." This is Jackie's all-time favorite short story, to which the three of us also enjoyed discussing. What came about was a very interesting, thought provoking discussion to which we picked up more on the particular work from what we read in addition to what everyone that made up the discussion thought about the material. It is always a delight to work with Charlie and I had the great opportunity to work with him much more during the third season and plan to work with him more as we film the fourth season. Larry and Jackie have been great as participants for the show and I am really looking forward to have them back in the future. Both of them are scheduled to participate in the fourth season that we will film throughout the summer.

We have reached fifty subscribers on YouTube on May 3rd and, as I am writing this, have fifty-three subscribers. I have decided to launch a giveaway for those that are currently subscribed and to those that subscribe between now and the end of the giveaway entry, which will be on Friday, May 29th at 5 PM eastern time. All you have to do is subscribe and earn one point (equal to one entry). You can also earn an additional two points (for two entries) by commenting on that particular video, telling us what you like about the show and if you have any suggestions in moving forward. On the 29th, we will have a drawing and there will be one winner. The winner will receive one or more books that add up to $15 on Amazon.

You need to be 18 or older to enter on your own and at least 13 to enter with a parent's permission. If you win, we will also need you to send us your mailing address, so that we can mail you the book (or books). Hope you check out our giveaway and we wish you all of the best!

Here are both videos. Hope you enjoy!
