All these and security were within. Without was the “Red Death.” What a wonderful ball the prince was hosting-or could it just have been a distraction from the fact that death would soon befall everyone? All the revelers were in their own little world at the party, but every time the ebony clock from the seventh room rang, it was like a check into reality. Everyone quieted and became nervous, realizing that death is approaching. The castle was secure and safe from the outside world but without a sanctuary, you would most likely contract the Red Death and die soon.
It says “Then later at dinner the King arranged the seating and joked with all…”, saying that Henry VIII and his nobility share more than a work relationship and can laugh and joke together. This type of behaviour indicates that Henry VIII probably had little friendships with some of his nobility. But in Source 2 the nobility have angered the King by blatantly disregarding his orders and breaking his laws. When asked to assemble ‘as many able men for war as they can muster from their estates’ some nobles were preparing hired men that are paid for their duties, not men from their tenants or members of household. When Henry VIII was informed of this it say “The King commands this to cease forthwith, and orders those who have made such arrangements to remedy the situation or bear the King’s anger and indignation, to their great danger and peril.”.
Rumors spread like wild fire every single day. When I heard the rumors being said, I decided that I was going to meet Jay and make my own opinions of him after I actually knew who he was. Once I finally met him, all the rumors I had ever heard seemed to be completely insane! The people who attended his parties spread rumors simply for their own entertainment. They all tried to make it seem like Jay was a terrible man, when really, all he ever wanted was to be accepted by everyone.
An allegory is a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one. In the story, a terrible disease called the Red Death struck the country. It’s incredibly fatal and gruesome, and it had already killed off half the kingdom. The ruler of the kingdom, Prince Prospero, does not care about the decease of his kingdom and proceeds to throw a masquerade ball in his mansion far away in the woods. During the ball a masked person appears and he portrays a frightening corpse who died of the Red Death.
Kristy Everett Ms.Burns-6th PAP English-II 14 May, 2012 Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death,” is a short story about a prince who invites a thousand of his “lighthearted friends” to a masked ball, while the rest of his kingdom is dying from a plague. When the narrator describes seven different colored chambers in the prince’s castle, suddenly a stranger appears described as the Red Death. Prospero becomes angry that someone with such little humor would join his masque ball. At once the Prince orders the guest to remove his mask, but no one dares to go near him. The Prince then chases the stranger through six of the seven chambers, but when the masked stranger approaches and enters the seventh chamber, which is the black room, he falls dead upon the floor.
Unfortunately, he lacked the funds to live the life he not only imagined, but told constant lies about it. "He had autograph pictures of all the members of the stock company which he showed his classmates, telling them the most incredible stories of his familiarity with these people, of his acquaintance with the soloists who came to Carnegie Hall, his suppers with them and the flowers he sent them" (Cather, n.p). Paul went from being a boy who escaped Cordelia Street by visiting Carnegie Hall, to being a runaway thief to New York, to a boy whose dream of an extravagant lifestyle was ruined by an impetuous decision. While it was true that Paul did escape the mundane life of Cordelia Street to the vibrant world of Carnegie Hall and the stock theatre, he did not live the exquisite life he led others to believe. Paul really did have acquaintances of the stock theatre.
In summary, the Prince has a party to keep his guests calm and to be happy, then a red masked figure comes in and ruins their party by scaring them with his features, and all of the guests and Prince Prospero die after chasing the masked figure and finding him the black room. Trying to avoid death at the end can have a lot of
Kevin_Hilliard Reading & Literature Part II Section 3, lesson 1 assignment 1 3/5/2013 The Masque of The Red Death In the year 2023, there was a plague so devastating that the world could not bear. The “Red Death” was so devastating, it destroyed half the population. This horrific plague contained the most horrific manifestations. The manifestations consist of sharp pains, sudden dizziness, and profuse bleeding at the pores with disintegration. Anyone that the plague came upon, caused reddening stains on the face and the body would appear, which caused the individual to be thrown in a secluded quarantine factory.
“There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores, with dissolution.” Poe's vision of Red Death is shown through this scene by enabling the reader to see the severity of Red Death. A victim of Red Death endures a painful death; present is an immense amount of bleeding and excruciating pain. “There was a sharp cry – and the dagger dropped gleaming upon the sable carpet, upon which, instantly afterwards, fell prostrate in death the Prince Prospero.” This is a very important part of the story. After everything Prince Prospero does to evade Red Death he is killed by the very thing he went to the extreme to
