The Taxes: Colonel Sartoris like Judge Stevenson acts out of respect and responsibility for Emily believing that a woman of her social status should be shielded from the truth and the banal realities of life. Still believing in the old tax remittance arrangement with the previous mayor, she ignores the tax notices sent to her house at the end of every year. The last significant event in the story of Emily is her death. The room is her bedroom left intact in the nuptial arrangement of a wedding night with the groom still lying in the bed.
The final episode of Miss. It contains some grisly facts about Miss. It also reveals the dire consequences of this gratuitous sense of responsibility for Emily which is reflected in the attempts to safeguard her social position as a lady, conflating care and power relations. This violence is produced and sustained in the idea that Emily is an object of veneration Fetterley, pp. According to her, veneration could contain and conduce violence if it is induced by a patriarchal outlook and tradition as in the code of gentlemanly behavior.
In other words, they were fooled by their own idea and assumptions about Emily. This is very similar to what Bauman argued above about the representation and recreation of the other. There are some incidents in the story which merit attention as they most clearly illustrate this point: In all these cases, Emily, much to her egomaniacal satisfaction, is placed at the receiving end of unacceptable favoritism which she has been made to thinks she is entitled to.
Occupying a nodal place in the social grid of power relations, Emily is simultaneously a victim and a victimizer. They are also victimizers as they presumed to defy the law on her behalf out of a sense of responsibility by trespassing her property in the middle of the night to get rid of the smell or to rationalize the download of poison and her tax evasion.

The obliteration of freedom equals the termination of power relations. That is what never happens in the story. Emily always enjoys a minimum margin of freedom to make her own decisions. The leeway given her translates into a precarious care situation.

People in our town. Presently we began story to support your to see him and Miss Emily on Sunday afternoons driving in the yellow-wheeled answer.
None of the young men were quite good enough for Miss Emily and such. Whenever you heard a lot of laughing anywhere about the Cite evidence from the square. Reread lines 98— She told them that her father was townspeople. The narrator is not condolence and aid. We remembered all the young men her father had driven away.
Miss Emily met them at the door. Now she too would know the is told from the first- old thrill and the old despair of a penny more or less. We believed she had to do that. That was when people had begun to feel really sorry for her. So when she got to be thirty and was still single. She did that for three days. They had not even been represented at the funeral. Her kinsfolk should come to her. They just said.
And as soon as the old people said. Like when she bought the rat poison. It was as if she demanded more than ever the recognition of her dignity as the last Grierson. She was over thirty then.
What else could. What kind? For rats and such? The Negro delivery boy brought her the package. Miss Emily with her head high and Homer Barron with his hat cocked and a cigar in his teeth. But the law requires you to tell what you are going to use it for. At first nothing happened. Then we were sure that they were to be married. The next Sunday they again drove about the streets.

When she opened the package at home there was written on the box. So she had blood-kin under her roof again and we sat back to watch developments. He would never divulge what happened during that interview. When she had first begun to be seen with Homer Barron.
She looked back at him. By that time it was a cabal.
Then some of the ladies began to say that it was a disgrace to the town and a bad example to the young people. The men did not want to interfere. We were glad because the two female cousins were even more Grierson than Miss Emily had ever been. What best thing. We were a little disappointed that there was not a public blowing-off. Later we said. Sure enough.
We did not even know she was sick. Meanwhile her taxes had been remitted. Now and then we would see her in one of the downstairs windows—she had evidently shut up the top floor of the house—like the carven torso of an idol in a niche.
She would not listen to them. Thus she passed from generation to generation—dear. A neighbor saw the Negro man admit him at the kitchen door at dusk one evening. The Negro man went in and out with the market basket. Each December we sent her a tax notice.
A Rose for Emily PDF Summary
Fell ill in the house filled with dust and shadows. And of Miss Emily for some time. Up to the day of her death at seventy-four it was still that vigorous iron-gray. And how does her gray head propped on a pillow yellow and moldy with age and lack of sunlight. From that time on her front door remained closed.
Then we knew that this was to be expected too. When the narrator says doddering Negro man to wait on her. And that was the last we saw of Homer Barron.
Support your answer with evidence from the story. Homer Barron is a guy with whom she dated for a few times but when Barron refused her to marry, Emily killed and kept him upstairs for many years. After her death, while all the town people gathered in her funeral, they discovered the dead, dried and smelly body of Barron.
Miss Emily is the central Character of this story. She has been pictured as a dominant character and very introvert in nature. While the new aldermen came to her house she does not even bother to refuse the tax and while she went to download the poison did not mention the reason for downloading this as the law requires so. For her introvert nature we cannot blame herself but her father as he denied all the men who wanted to marry Emily. Tobe is another character in this story whose nature looks very ordinary but mysterious.
The people of the town only could see him leaving the house with a grocery pot and entering the house with the grocery.
Homer Barron is the man who was Page 1 of 3 murdered by Emily and once dated with her. In profession he was with some construction work that we know from the story and often visit the town Miss Emily lived in.
From the story and the symbol, we know that he also was a dominant person and always think him in an upper level in the society. Colonel Sartoris is the man who relieves Miss Emily of her tax obligation when her father died. We do not know much more about why Colonel Satoris did this but we assume that they might have a good family relation.What else could. The druggist looked down at her. The narrator is not condolence and aid.
But, as I have read, my suspicion is that the narrator is none other the servant. They wrote her a formal letter, asking her to call at the sheriff's office at her convenience. When she opened the package at home there was written on the box, under the skull and bones: For rats.
She died in one of the downstairs rooms, in a heavy walnut bed with a curtain, her gray head propped on a pillow yellow and moldy with age and lack of sunlight.
