Analysis: The person who tells the story in A Rose for Emily remains unidentified throughout the story. Some readers may be of the view that the narrator is the boy that stores memories of Mr. Grierson as he stood in the doorway. Some readers may also identify the narrator as the former servant of Emily, named Tobe, given he had spent quite some time with Emily watching her intimately. However, Tobe gets vanished in the end while the narrator keeps narrating. This provides assurance for the idea that the narrator can not be Tobe. In fact, voice of the narrator is the gossip of the town that tends to make its way through the door of Emily’s house. A deep analysis of the story suggests that the unnamed narrator is indeed, the collective and unified voice of the whole town because it is no one but the townspeople, who stay until the end of the story and explore Emily’s secret. Many events that have a fundamental role in the building up of plot happen to occur inside Emily Grierson’s house. The outsiders often have no access to the events that happen behind the closed doors, though the curiosity among the town people to learn about the world inside Emily’s house is immense.
