The chronology of "A rose for Emily".

  1. 1. THE CHRONOLOGY OF “A ROSE FOR EMILY”. American Literature. Teacher: Andrea Puchmuller. Student: Adela Pérez del Viso.
  2. 2. THE CHRONOLOGY OF “A ROSE FOR EMILY”. (1969) AUTHOR: PAUL D MCGLYNN.
  3. 3. IMPORTANCE OF “TIME”. •Time is important because it helps clarifying the facts in the story of Emily. •Time is the unseen character that battles, defeats and mocks everyone in this story. •There is a chronology, but “hidden”. We have to sort it out.
  4. 4. EMILY DEFEATS TIME IN THREE OCCASIONS. 1. Emily denies her father´s death. 2. Emily denies Colonel Sartori´s death. 3. Emily preserves the corpse of Homer.
  5. 5. FIVE SCRUMBLED PARTS OF THE STORY: 1. In Part 1: Funeral of Emily. Remembrance of the times when her father died and taxes were remitted. 2. In Part. 2: smell. 3. Part 3: Arrival of Homer Barron and Emily purchasing some poison.
  6. 6. FIVE PARTS OF THE STORY: 1. Part 4: Town´s expectations of Emily´s suicide, arrival of relatives, the minister´s visit. 2. Part 5: The shortest. Funeral and Ghastly discovery.
  7. 7. CHRONOLOGICAL DATA: SCATTERED BUT CONSISTENT. 1. Emily was presumably born on 1864. 2. 1894: Emily Father´s dies. She got to be thirty. Rescinding of Taxes. 3. 1895: She meets Homer (The summer after the father´s death) 4. 1896-1898: Homer dissapearance period. 5. 1898: Homer´s bedroom is closed (it remains closed for 40 years)
  8. 8. CHRONOLOGICAL DATA: SCATTERED BUT CONSISTENT. 1. 1898: Her hair turns gray. 2. 1904: For 5 or 6 years she teaches at home. 3. 1926: Battle for the taxes. (30 years after the father´s death). 4. 1928: One person enters the house for the last time. 5. 1938: Year of her death, she is 74 when she dies.
  9. 9. TWO YEARS TRIUMPH AGAINST FORTY YEARS OF SILENCE AND HORROR. 1. Emily´s 2-year triumph over death and dishonor is counter- balanced by 40 years of silence, memory and the horrific FACT upstairs. 2. TWO FALLEN MONUMENTS: Emily (over Time) and Homer Barron (over death). 3. Time is the patient and biding dust, the most silent and active character in the story.
