In the case of “The Fall of the House of Usher”, for example, it was not evil that caused the mansion to collapse. It was fear and insanity. Fear of a long, poisoned direct ancestry that haunts the living descendants each day, and the unhealthy mental mind of a product of that lineage, is what figuratively ended the House of Usher, not evil.

19th Century Tension between Science and Religion

- Wallace and Darwin grew up on opposite sides of the track. Wallace's youth was spent amongst the abject poverty of the rural Welsh. These were the people furnishing the likes of Darwin (a Cambridge graduate, and the son of a doctor,) with taxes and tithings whilst they could barely put food on their own table. This gave rise to Wallace's socialist political values. It also influenced his attitude towards science. "This land (Wales,) equipped Wallace with the basic skills of insights he would need for a career in science." (A103 TV16"Wallace in Wales.") Where Darwin perceived native people from other lands as "barbarians," Wallace was less negative, seeing in these people more positive attri...   [tags: European History]

Men, usually European, were perceived as the explorers and the colonizers. Women, on the other hand, were house wives and could never measure to a man’s status in society.
