Storyboard Text

  • Emily and Homer begin having weekly carriage rides soon after he arrives in town (mid-1890s).
  • When Emily purchases arsenic from a local druggist the locals assume she will kill herself.
  • Miss Emily buys a men's toilet set in silver and the townspeople assume Homer and Emily will get married.
  • "Presently we began to see him and Miss Emily on Sunday afternoons driving in the yellow wheeled buggy..." (Faulkner 4) "... as they passed on Sunday afternoon in the glittering buggy, Miss Emily with her head high and Homer Barron with his hat cocked and a cigar in his teeth" (Faulkner 5)
  • Homer mysteriously disappears and Emily becomes more reclusive.
  • "'I want some poison,' she said to the druggist. She was over thirty then..." (Faulkner 4). "So THE NEXT day we said, 'She will kill herself'; and we said it would be the best thing" (Faulkner 5)
  • The mayor gets complaints about a stench being omitted from Miss Emily's house so he sends out men to sprinkle lime to get rid of the odor (late-1890s).
  • "We learned that Miss Emily had been to the jeweler's and ordered a man's toilet set in silver, with the letters H.B on each piece" (Faulkner 5) "...and we said, 'They are married'" (Faulkner 5)
  • Miss Emily gives china-painting lesson for a brief period of time ( Early 1900s).
  • "That was two years after her father's death and a short time after her sweetheart-- the one we believed would marry her-- had deserted her" (Faulkner 2). "And that was the last we saw of Homer Barron. And Miss Emily for some time" (Faulkner 5)
  • "So SHE vanquished them, horse and foot, just as she had vanquished their fathers thirty years before about the smell" (Faulkner 2). "They broke open the cellar door and sprinkled lime there, and in all the outbuildings" (Faulkner 3)
  • "...When she was about forty, during which she gave lessons in china-painting" (Faulkner 5) "... and the painting pupils grew up and fell away and did not send their children to her with boxes of color and tedious brushes" (Faulkner 5)
