Compare "A Rose for Emily" with the story "The Feather Pillow" by Horacio Quiroga. In what ways are Faulkner's and Quiroga's stories alike and different?

Note, for example that both stories end on a shocking note, but Faulkner does not spell out what happened to Miss Emily and Homer Baron. Quiroga, on the other hand, reveals Alicia's fate in graphic detail. 

In the comparison please focus on these elements of Gothic fiction: -sinister settings, -fantastic plot, -grotesque character, -use of the supernatural.
