This is turn makes Miss Gee seem anonymous, creating sympathy for her amongst the reader due to her being unable to distinguish herself in society. Throughout the poem Auden shows her to be an extremely lonely character. She is only referred to as “miss” suggesting that not even the narrator, who tells us her life story, knows her well enough to address her using a first name basis. This shows that the character of Miss Gee has not got anyone to be close to, to the point of which her life story must be told by a complete stranger.
