No One Can Hide From Death In "The Masque of Red Death", Edgar Allen Poe tells a story of human denial and struggle with death, especially among the wealthy. Poe uses powerful images of sensual texture, color and symbols to show the passing of time and life. Prince Prospero along with "a thousand hale and lighthearted friends from among the knights and dames of his court" (202) sought a haven from the "Red Death" that is devastating the country.

On July 14, 1789, an angry mob of French commoners
On July 14, 1789, an angry mob of French commoners stormed the Bastille in Paris. These low-class citizens had only one thing on their minds as they initiated a nation at war, and that was revenge - revenge on the King and the government, on the nobles and the wealthy. Dickens stunningly depicted the motive for this revenge, this hate that all peasants had for the aristocracy, in A Tale of Two Cities. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, . . . " In these famous words, Dickens re

Uses of it can be found in his short story The Masque of the Red Death. Two that are evident are; the clock that signals Deaths approach, and the repetition of the number seven to implies lifes end. In the story a prince named Prospero is ruling in the mists of a plague that has killed half of his population. But instead of helping his people during their time of
