Transcript of The Pit and the Pendulum

In the Pit and the Pendulum , Edgar was in a dark room in the beginning of the story which later, the walls began closing in on him, forcing him to jump and hang on to the ledge of the pit in the center of the room.This is a perfect example of the gothic element of claustrophobia being used in this story.
In the story , Edgar is in a dark room looking for a way out. Then he becoms unconscious and wakes up straped to a table with a pendulum swinging above him. The whole writing expresses that Edgar is is traped in some way.
Throughout the pendulem kept changing in length. The pendulum kept getting closer and closer to Edgar. At first the pendulum was at the ceiling, then it started to drop slowly towards the table Edgar was on. This clearly shows the transformation of the pendulum.
