Storyboard Text

  • "Alive, Miss Emily had been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town, dating from that day in 1894 wnen Colonel Sartoris, the mayor, remitted her taxes" "Only a man of Colonel Sartoris' generation and thought could have invented it, and only a woman could have believed it."
  • The town has decided to remit your taxes.
  • "After her father's death she went put very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all"
  • people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last, believed  that the Griersons held themselves a little too high for what they really were. None of the young men were quite good enough for Miss Emily and such.
  • We had long thought of them as a tableau, Miss Emily a slender figure in white in the backgrounds, her father a spraddled silhouette in the foreground, his back to her and clutching a horsewhip , the two of them framed by the back-flung front door.
  • so when she got to be thirty and was still single, we were not pleased exactly, but vindicated; even with insanity in the family she would't  have turned down all of her chances if they had really materialized
  • When her father died, it got  about that the house was all that was left to her ; and in a way, people were glad, at last they could pity Miss Emily. being left alone, and a pauper, she had become humanized. now she too would know the old thrill and the old despair of a penny more or less.
