  • Edgar Allen Poe: His Life And His Work - 1,692 words
    In human nature there exists a morbid desire to explore the darker realms of life. As sensitive beings we make every effort to deny our curiosity in the things that frighten us, and will calmly reassure our children that there arent any creatures under their beds each night, but deep down we secretly thrive on that cool rush of fear. Despite our efforts to maintain a balance of respectable emotions, we are a society of people who slow down to look at traffic accidents and find excitement in the macabre. We turn off the lights when watching scary movies, and when its time to go to bed, we secretly make sure the closet doors are shut. Fear keeps our hearts pumping and endorphins rushing, for i ...

  • Edgar Allen Poe - Premature Burial - 913 words
    During the nineteenth century, there was a common fear that plagued the Americans and Europeans alike; this was the fear of premature burial. Doctors during this era lacked the modern medical knowledge that we now posses and would sometimes pronounce people dead who were in comas or even unconscious. The assumed dead would then awake during the funeral service or even once buried. After this began to become a common occurrence, the people started to make many precautions in the burying the dead. They would bury a person with a crowbar and shovel in case of premature burial; the person could get himself or herself out of the coffin. Another method was to leave the dead lying out of their cask ...

  • Edgar Allen Poe Short Story; "cask Of Amontillado" - 702 words
    Humans are very complicated. For many years, human beings have been trying to figure out how the body works physically and mentally. Researches led to many discoveries in the human physical body, but the human mind is still relatively mysterious. Whenever a person does not follow the societys guidelines, he or she, often enough, is considered mentally ill. In Edgar Allan Poes short story The Cask of Amontillado, the highly descriptive imageries demonstrate how Montresors preoccupation with pride can easily lead to madness. In addition, with the aid of precise information, the author demonstrates how Montresor can embody human nature and through this character suggests that every human can be ...

  • Reoccuring Themes In Edgar Allen Poe's Short Stories - 1,409 words
    In one of Edgar Allan Poes best-known tales of horror, The Cask of Amontillado, he suggests that pride can be a very dangerous thing. The story begins with Montressors vow of revenge, foreshadowing the future actions. The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when ventured upon insult vowed revenge (Poe 1297). Through the use of foreshadowing, irony, and symbolism, Poe presents the inner motive drama of two men. One who will stop at nothing to get the revenge that he considers himself and his family worthy of, and another whos pride will ultimately be the fall of his own death. Fortunato falls prey to Montressors plans because he is so proud of his connoisseurship o ...

    Symbols can play very important roles in the stories that contain them. The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe has three major examples of symbols that help to give the story its true meaning.
