- Edgar Allen Poe From Inside - 1,135 words
Edgar Allen Poe From Inside Many romanticists focused on the contemplation of the natural world, but few dared to journey down the road of the unexplainable into the supernatural realms. Only one man, Edgar Allen Poe, crossed the threshold between the real world and the dark and dreary habitat of his mind. Unlike the masses, Poe disregarded the French revolutionary philosophy, humanitarianism, reform, the new interpretation of nature, and exploration of the past. He worked on exploiting the purely imaginative faculty of his mind and focused on the realm of mystery and horror (Blankenship, 216). He treaded the rich and sometimes dank soil of the Gothic and grotesque. His tales littered with d ...

Edger Allan Poe Best known for his poems and short fiction, Edgar Allan Poe, born in Boston on Jan. 19, 1809, deserves more credit than any other writer for the transformation of the short story from tale to art. He for the most part created the detective story and perfected the psychological thriller. He also produced some of the most influential literary criticism of his time. Poe died Oct. 7, 1849.

- Masque Of Red Death By Poe - 463 words
Masque Of Red Death By Poe 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. The three main occurrences of symbolism are evident as a color, number, or a name. The colors in the story show strongly the attitudes, feelings, or emotions that are occurring. For example, "the western or black chamber" distinctively indicates a sense of death especially when compared to the other six, colorful chambers. "The panes were scarlet-a deep blood color." Poe compares the color of the windowpanes to the color of blood, which implies that blood may be a f ...

- The Masque Of The Red Death By Edgar Allen Poe - 357 words
