I am a huge fan of imagery, so on pg 30 when Miss Emily enters the parlor and her appearance is described, then I automatically fall in love with the work. This story is worth reading for its descriptions.

To me, this is an example of Objective Point of View because the one telling the story relates himself to “we” in the story, but does not enter anyone’s thoughts. The story starts with a lead, and throughout more and more “examples” are given to support the plot. We as readers are given a flashback of her life before she dies, seeing what happened to all the people she once cared about who are no longer in her life.
