'Homer Barron’s remains that lay on the bed\r'

'It was Homer Barron’s remains that lay on the bed in one  of the way of lifes of the former(a) Grierson house, found there forty years later on his disappearance.  The circumstances and events cited by the author of the short apologue â€Å"A Rose for Emily” point out to this inescapable conclusion.Only a person with an abnormal state of take heed would suffer a dead man to remain unburied for years, mouldering right inside a room in her house. When some of the neighbours complained of the foul smell, Miss Emily acted as if nonhing was wrong: the work force who had surreptitiously entered her lawn to diffuse lime over the ground saw her session inside one of the rooms.  Unknown to them at that time, she was perchance keeping vigil or visiting her devotee’s corpse.That she would lie down with him night after night †evidenced by the â€Å"long chemical chain of iron-gray hair” found in the rowdyism in the pillow beside him † bespeaks of her utter loss of sanity, which was not so visible at foremost. That Miss Emily suffered from frantic instability †a streak of madness in her †becomes apparent as the story unf hoars.Cloistered in the past Grierson mansion, Miss Emily is seen as someone above the medium citizen: her supposed lineage kept people at bay.  She ignored tax notices sent after her grow died; either she did not comprehend, or she had naively believed the old tale that the townspeople were indebted to her family.  She is impervious  and cold, on the face of it devoid of any emotion, as if lost in a  world only she knows about.We find the first strong evidence of her unnatural state of soul when her father dies: she refuses for three days to have him buried, verbalize the mourners he was not dead.  â€Å"We did not say she was huffy then,” narrates the author.  The people saw her grief as evidence of a despairing helplessness, feeling herself so al one, excuse unmarried, her father having driven away those young men who had earlier proposed to her.We are told that Miss Emily â€Å"had some family unit in Alabama; but years agone her father had fallen out with them over the dry land of old lady Wyatt, the crazy woman . . . â€Å" here(predicate) is yet another hint that madness ran in the family.When she and Homer Barron are seen together, causing a dirt among the townsfolk, the Baptist minister is sent to talk to her.  The minister does not say what transpired during their interview but he refuses to go back (and talk to her) again.Perhaps the minister was taken aback by Miss Emily’s haughty air as that she displayed when she vanquished the town officials who had demanded from her payment of taxes.  Or maybe the minister saw something frightful in Emily’s eyes that he refused to talk to her again.\r\n'
