Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque Of The Red Death

- Edgar Allan Poe was a writer who believed every single word contained meaning and in his own words expressed this idea in brevity only he is capable, "…there should be no word written, of which tendency, direct or indirect, is not to the one pre-established design." (Poe 244). To this effect, Poe drenches his works in symbolism and allegory. Especially in shorter works, Poe assigns meaning to the smallest object, explicitly deriving exurbanite significance within concise descriptions. "The Masque of the Red Death" tells the story of a Prince Prospero who along with his one thousand friends sought a haven from the plague that was ravishing their country....   [tags: Edgar Allan Poe Masque Red Death]

Wells captures and sustains the reader’s imagination using suspense, setting, gothic convention and language techniques which allow for a remarkably eerie tale to be told. The significance of the title immediately creates a sense of mystery, as the reader does not know why the adjective ‘red’ is used to describe the room and this colour is usually associated with danger, blood, hell and fear, suggesting that Wells is preparing the reader for anguish....   [tags: Herbert George Wells, Red Room, gothic,]
