Inextricable (adjective)

Inextricable – forming a maze or tangle from which it is impossible to get free.


I have encountered this word while reading the story of “A Rose For Emily”. It is located on section five, on the the last page, third paragraph, also on page 6/6. This word was in a sentences “What was left of him, rotted beneath what was left of the nightshirt, had become inextricable from the bed in which he lay; and upon him the pillow beside him lay that even coating of the patent and biding dust.” Now that I have understand the meaning of this word, inextricable means that you can’t escape from something. Just like it was said in the story “had become inextricable from the bed in which he lay;” is telling us that he can not be separated, or escape from where he is. Which can also be trying to say that he can not escape his death.
