    To begin I would like to state that this is the first time I have had the experience of reading Poe and as such the reading process was greatly intriguing. The short story I chose was the Masque of the Red Death, which I found to be very dark and vile. From the beginning of the story to the end I found great concentration on the issues of life and death, among other things, which made the story very dynamic for its size. Another point of interest I found in the story was Poe's concentration on h...

The story that follows Hagar's meandering diatribe is superficial to her rebirth through her progressive death. The gradual progression of the novel is paralleled by Hagar's continual battle with both a failing body and mind. In a somewhat paradoxical state, Laurence makes life and death bedfellows in the ...
