Storyboard Text

  • 1. "On the first of the year they mailed her a tax notice. February came, and there was no reply. They wrote her a formal letter, asking her to call at the sheriff’s office at her convenience. A week later the mayor wrote her himself, offering to call or to send his car for her... The tax notice was also enclosed, without comment." (Faulkner 1)
  • We are here for your taxes.
  • I have no taxes, so go see Colonel Satoris.
  • 1. “'I have no taxes in Jefferson. Colonel Sartoris explained it to me. Perhaps one of you can gain access to the city records and satisfy yourselves.' 'But we have. We are the city authorities, Miss Emily. Didn’t you get a notice from the sheriff, signed by him?'" (Faulkner 2)
  • Sorry men, but I have no taxes in Jefferson, so can you please leave?
  • Okay Miss Emily we will leave right now.
  • 2. "After her father's death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all. A few of the ladies had the temerity to call, but were not received, and the only sign of life about the place was the Negro man--a young man then--going in and out with a market basket." (Faulkner 3)
  • It smells terrible out here.
  • Right, we should report this to the mayor. 
  • 2. "So the next night, after midnight, four men crossed Miss Emily's lawn and slunk about the house like burglars, sniffing along the base of the brickwork and at the cellar openings while one of them performed a regular sowing motion with his hand out of a sack slung from his shoulder. They broke open the cellar door and sprinkled lime there, and in all the outbuildings." (Faulkner 4)
  • This place really does stink, come on lets sprinkle this lime everywhere
  • Okay, lets go. Hopefully they don't see us. 
  • 3. "The day after his death all the ladies prepared to call at the house and offer condolence and aid, as is our custom Miss Emily met them at the door, dressed as usual and with no trace of grief on her face. She told them that her father was not dead. She did that for three days..." (Faulkner 4).
  • Hello, we just wanted to say that we are sorry about your father's death.
  • My father is not dead.
  • 3. "She did that for three days, with the ministers calling on her, and the doctors, trying to persuade her to let them dispose of the body. Just as they were about to resort to law and force, she broke down, and they buried her father quickly." (Faulkner 4)
  • You can take my father now.
  • Okay ma'am.
