Shortly afterwards, when Homer apparently deserts her on the eve of their presumed wedding, and an offensive smell develops in her house, there is angry complaining to authority. In both stories situational irony represents an element that helps emphasize the plot and climax. Hopewell is an old divorced lady who persuades herself that she is in control of the situation and hopes everything goes well.
Second, ironically Hulga claims to believe in nothing and is actually left with nothing, no pride, no intelligence, no faith, and no leg. This event tells a lot about how Miss Emily has lost sense of time due to her isolation.
Now, alone in the woods, Hulga must build herself up from zero. Hoisting the coffin on his shoulders, the Negro starts out toward leper soil, Jacques with him. No one saw him come. This is, we note, a Poquelin reverse that the townspeople relish; they too oppose new streets, and will welcome engineering difficulties, but their fearful scorn for Poquelin causes them to look upon his forcible return to the community with pleasure.
His only relative, a much younger half-brother named Jacques, has not been seen for seven years, two years after Poquelin and he left for the Guinea coast on a slave-capturing expedition and Jean Marie returned alone.

For example, first, Manley Pointer is suppose to be the one with many beliefs since he sells bibles, but at the end turns out to be is the one who does not believe in anything. The city official to whom the Governor has referred him also knows no French and deals with Poquelin through an interpreter.Irony -A Rose for Emily The actions of the town drove her to do what she did and how they criticized her for not being social when they were the cause of her being ostracized.
Also there is irony in the southern gentility and aristocracy. William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” is filled with character, plot, and setting symbolism.
They all seem to say that Miss Emily is stuck in time, with no way out. She poisons Homer Barron for many different reasons.
