Fortunately, for everyone’s sake, not everyone was only out to save himself or herself. In contrast to the many examples where betrayal was the norm there are several examples of friends who were genuine and helped to make the situation better for someone even they could not make it better
Besides, she is the leader of her group of friends and is willing to do anything, regardless of the consequences, to protect herself from punishment, which
Lastly, her family betrayed her by not listening to her side of the story after her sister told lies about her, and they betrayed her when they acted as if they did not care if she moved out of the house. In all of these actions, the family itself and certain members of the family are portrayed as uncaring, unsupportive, disrespectful, conniving, deceitful, and hateful to Sister. Through every action of the family, Sister is treated harshly, and she tries to not let this bother her. Yet, anger and bitterness build up inside of her until she cannot take it anymore. Consequently, it built up so much inside of her that it severely affected Sister so profoundly that she moved away from her home to get away from her family.
In light of Homers feelings toward marriage Emily had been seen in town at the jewelers purchasing a men’s toilet set in silver with the letters H.B. on each
When she finally found a male that showed some interest and emotion, she was attached to them. That’s where Homer Barron comes into the story. He would visit Emily and go for Sunday drives with her. When Homer told Emily that he must move on she found herself on the verge of loneliness once again. If Homer would leave it would be two men that have left her. When she realized that he was about to leave she poisoned him and would keep him forever.
The two cousins are forced to leave by Miss Emily with help from the townsfolk who could not stand the cousins. Homer is seen sneaking back into the house once the cousins are gone, and Miss Emily is not going to let him leave her again. Her insanity has driven her to the point that she poisons him one evening and lies in an embrace with him.

alone so she kills Homer and leaves him in her house. This way she still has Homer by
Emily chooses a lover that resembles her father in many ways; Homer is big, strong, outspoken, and domineering. Initially, the townspeople are happy to know that Emily is dating Homer. "Of course a Grierson would not think seriously of a Northerner, a day laborer." When they realize that Emily is serious about him, they have a change of heart. "Miss Emily with her head high and Homer Barron with his hat cocked and a cigar in his teeth, reigns and whip in a yellow glove." Emily does not care about the people's reaction toward her affair with Homer. Emily's affair with a "day laborer" is an act of defiance, toward her father and perhaps, even the toward the townspeople. She wants to show everyone that she is in control of her life and will do as she pleases.
Homer entered her life by courting her publicly; by not wanting to marry her, he would have robbed her of her dignity and high-standing in the community. The ladies of the town felt that Miss Emily was not setting a good example for the "younger people" and their affair was becoming a "disgrace to the town" (75). The traditions, customs, and prejudices of the South doomed this affair from the beginning. Emily could not let Homer live, but she could not live without him. He was her only love. When she poisoned him with arsenic, she believed he would be hers forever.
After living so long as a victim of loneliness perpetrated by her father, Emily decides that she will be vindicated-she will have her man. She orders a toiletry set to be engraved with Homer's initials, purchases an outfit and a nightshirt for him, and buys the arsenic that is to seal his fate. When the townspeople enter her house for the first time in forty years, they find a bridal tomb: a tarnished toiletry set, a neatly pressed suit, and a rotting Homer Baron clad in the nightshirt wearing a "profound and fleshless grin" (87).
The show makes an obvious distinction between how men/boys and women/girls act. Anyway, the episode continues with lisa playing with her doll pretending that Malibu Stacy is giving a speech at the U.N, but Lisa is disappointed when she realizes that the new and improved doll says sexist remarks such as “don’t ask me, I’m just a girl” and “let’s buy make up so that boys will like us!”. Lisa goes on a rant about how “millions of girls will grow up thinking that this is the right way to act! That they cannot be anything more than vacuous ninnies...!”and gets really mad when Bart does not understand why she is so upset. The difference in communication styles is shown here as Lisa is more adept with words than Bart is as Bart can only give Lisa a stupid reply like “that’s what I was going to say.” This illustrates the stereotype that girls are more expressive and sensitive than boys are. On the other hand, Marge plays the more traditional housewife as her mind never delves into issues that are not relevant to the domestic center; she is not privy to relevant discussions on social issues like Lisa and cannot understand why Lisa is so upset. She said that Lisa had been speaking up “an awful lot lately.” This suggests that typical lady-like behavior does not include speaking out and that the mother should enforce positive female behavior. Additionally, in
They are interested but fearful to get involved in someone's life that is troubled or different than theirs. The townspeople's curiosity is shown through their inquiries about the smell at Emily's house, the watching of the comings and goings of Tobe, who is Emily's Negro servant, and their observing the buggy rides that Emily is having with Homer. Despite the curiosity of the residents, not one of them reaches out a compassionate hand to Emily. While the townspeople choose to stay on the outer circle of human contact, Homer, on the other hand, pursues his curiosity and engages in a personal friendship with Emily. Faulkner tells the reader how Homer takes Emily for buggy rides and, according to the townspeople, has been seen going into Emily's house. Homer has really stirred up the gossips of the town as they discuss whether or not it is proper for Emily to so closely relate to a Northerner, who is considered below her social class. While Homer develops a relationship with Emily, he does not realize what emotional state Emily is in and does not offer the help this poor distraught lady so desperately needs. Homer, knowingly or not, misses an opportunity to change Emily's life forever. Faulkner may be suggesting that just being involved in someone's life casually falls short of how human beings should be involved in others' lives.
Homer Simpson is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists in the TV show The Simpsons. Dan Castellanta voices him. He lives in a fictional town called Springfield, Oregon, United States. He is married to Marge Simpson with three children named Bart, Lisa and Maggie. He has a pet dog named Santa’s Little Helper and cat called Snowball. Homer currently works in the show at a Nuclear Power Plant as a Safety inspector but has worked at previous jobs before. Homer is known to be crude, overweight, clumsy, lazy, heavy drinker and ignorant. (Simpsons Wiki, n.d)
When Wally visits we learn that Homer has a heart disease or dysfunction so this maybe part of the reason that Homer is a very slow and enunciating talker. When he gets excited or shows emotion he doesn't take it over the edge, he keeps his composure at all times. So you can say that Homer is calm, cool, and collected. Homer has this way of giving sheepish smiles, and an aw-shucks way of presenting himself, that is a major appeal to the viewer and makes them fall in love with the young character.
