When we are first introduced to Emily it is at her funeral where the entire town has come to falsely pay their respects.
As a girl, Emily is cut off from most social contact by her father. When he dies, she refuses to acknowledge his death for three days. After the townspeople intervene and bury her father, Emily is further isolated by a mysterious illness, possibly a mental breakdown.
He tells his drinking buddies that he is not the marrying kind.
The townspeople consider their relationship improper because of differences in values, social class, and regional background. Emily buys arsenic and refuses to say why. The ladies in town convince the Baptist minister to confront Emily and attempt to persuade her to break off the relationship.
They come to Jefferson, but the townspeople find them even more haughty and disagreeable than Miss Emily. The cousins leave town. Homer is seen entering the house at dusk one day, but is never seen again.
No one sees Emily for approximately six months. By this time she is fat and her hair is short and graying. She refuses to set up a mailbox and is denied postal delivery.
Few people see inside her house, though for six or seven years she gives china-painting lessons to young women whose parents send them to her out of a sense of duty. The town mayor, Colonel Sartoris, tells Emily an implausible story when she receives her first tax notice: However, a younger generation of aldermen later confronts Miss Emily about her taxes, and she tells them to see Colonel Sartoris now long dead, though she refuses to acknowledge his death.
Intimidated by Emily and her ticking watch, the aldermen leave, but they continue to send tax notices every year, all of which are returned without comment. In her later years, it appears that Emily lives only on the bottom floor of her house.
She is found dead there at the age of seventy-four. Her Alabama cousins return to Jefferson for the funeral, which is attended by the entire town out of duty and curiosity.Yahoo Lifestyle is your source for style, beauty, and wellness, including health, inspiring stories, and the latest fashion trends.
