Griener’s home. After the disappearance of Homer Baron Miss. Grierson was rarely seen when she isolated herself inside her home. Shortly afterwards the towns people began complaining about a horrible smell coming from Miss. Griersons’ home.
Later in the story, we realize that the true cause of the horrible smell was not from a rat or a snake that was killed. It was from the decaying corpse of her lover, Mr. Homer Barron. Another example in this story of Faulkner’s use of foreshadowing occurs when the town ladies appear at Miss Emily’s door to offer their condolences upon the death of her father, only to have her state that he was not dead. “The day after his death all the ladies prepared to call at the house and offer condolence and aid, as is our custom.” (732).

Judge Stevens says to one of the townspeople, “’will you accuse a lady to her face of smelling bad?’” (545), which provides the reader with even more sympathy than before. At this point in the story, Miss Emily just seems like a poor old woman with nobody left to love. As we read on, Faulkner provides more details about Miss Emily, which might suggest her slight insanity. For the first three days after her father’s death, Miss Emily acted as if her father was still alive, keeping the dead body with her until the townspeople threatened to resort to law and force to bury the body. At one point, Miss Emily goes to the druggist to buy arsenic.
