Frosty Morning

"There's a certain slant of light, Winter Afternoon" 

Now you know why Miss Emily had an "aversion" to winter.

Hypertension does cause sensitivity to light which is what killed her and she had iritis which almost blinded her so outside of her mental illness she had enough physical illness' to be very sensitive to light.

An interesting point of speculation -- if her mental illness had been treated, to the extent we can do so today (not then), would she have been of any lasting significance as a poet?

My guess is that we'd never have heard of her, and that entire area of town (her house and the rest) would have been bulldozed in the '70's.
