  • Figurative Language
  • The story begins with Emily's funeral, then jumps backwards to when she was a young woman. The story somewhat stays in that setting, then describes her aging. After, it goes 30 years back into the past, talking about Emily's house and how it smelled. After, it jumps back again, talking about during the time Emily's father was still alive, and continues in this time as Homer was introduced. Then it jumps into the future again when Emily is an old lady. The story ends with referring to the end of the funeral and finding Homer in Emily's bed.
