Gilles Deleuze discovers in Marcel Proust a mode of thinking about time specific to literature. Deleuze's analysis may be used as a framework for showing how William Faulkner's fiction induces readers to undertake a similar thinking process. Faulkner's story "A Rose for Emily" provides a fruitful example, because its enigmatic qualities in relation to chronology engender a deeper inquiry into the nature of time in the story. While Proust undertakes a search for lost time, Faulkner sends his reader in search of a dead time encrypted in the heart of his tale.
