  22. Some good details in A Rose for Emily “Poor emily”: the attitude of the townspeople with Emily -> It is not only ironical voice from the town but also the author’s regret for Emily character. Tobe: a servant who take care of Emily until she died -> “the Negro men went in and out with a market basket” was repeated as regualrly, slowly and even softly as his appearance throughout Emily’s life -> “his voice had grown harsh and rusty, as if from disuse” Tobe might want to spend all his lifetime to take care of her as well as to love her in mute
