Transcript of The Masque of the Red Death

The Masque of the Red Death
Poe uses imagery to describe each of the seven rooms.
"The seventh apartment was closely shrouded in black velvet tapestries that hung all over the ceiling and down the walls, falling in heavy folds upon the carpet of the same material and hue" .
When the speaker describes the Black room that no one wants to go in it because it is too spooky it and that warns the reader that something might happen in that room.
The Red Death symbolizes that death is inevitable
Prince Prospero symbolizes how the wealthy only care about themselves
The Ebony Clock symbolizes time passing and how with each hour they are closer to death
The main theme of Poe's story is that you cannot escape death no matter what you do or how powerful you are.
Prince Prospero and his friends tried escape death but couldn't with every precaution they took.
The Ebony Clock chimes every hour and when the people hear it the stop what they are doing and don't talk.
The Red Death is devastating the country by killing many people. Prince Prospero does not care about them.
Him and a thousand of his friends are living in castle. He decides to have a masquerade ball in seven different rooms (blue, purple, green, orange, white, violet, and black) the black room had black walls and bloody windows, most of the people think the black room is too spooky. At midnight a uninvited guest shows up in a costume that looked like a person dying from the Red Death.

Prince Prospero orders the people to capture and unmask the uninvited guest but everyone is too afraid to. Prince Prospero goes to find the person and runs after him taking out his dagger. as they get to the door of the black room the ghost like person turns around and Prince Prospero falls dead. The other people are shocked and take the mask off the person to find that there is nothing under it. They realize that they have the Red Death and die one by one.
