Every night they throw a masquerade and have a ball with each other. One night, the ebony clock in the black room stuck midnight and silence fell in the party. Someone spotted a man, dressed in all black, hooded, and just standing in a doorway. After no guard wanting to chase after this intruder out of fear, the Prince takes matters into his own hands. He comes to the figure in the black room and quickly, he meets his fate.
My first thought when I read this was that the unknown stranger who got into the party was infected by the red death and had infected everybody else. Knowing that one of the side effects of the Red Death is delusion, I then thought that maybe Prince Prospero was always infected and this party was just all made up his mind as he lived his last moments of life. This also makes sense because none of the guests at the party were described. It shocks me how all this time it was believed that Prince Prospero was trying to escape death by throwing this party and take his mind off of it but in the end he still

Brutus assumes that they would be slaves if Caesar became king and he logically explains what went through his head. He says that he had to make the logically decision of killing Caesar and becoming free men, or staying quiet and die as slaves. The crowd praised Brutus because he wanted better for the people of Rome not for his selfish needs. After he expresses pathos by trying to get the pity of the crowd. He wanted to let the crowd know that he loved Caesar, but he simply loved Rome much more, “Just as I killed my best friend for the good of Rome, so will I kill myself when my country requires my death.” (3,2 pg.129).
Brigham Young once said, “Why do we worry about what others think of us, do we have more confidence in their opinions than we do our own?” One of the many stories in Tales From the Thousand and One Nights is “The Historic Fart, “ story about a man who lets out a loud fart on his wedding night. He is extremely ashamed and embarrassed, and runs off never to be seen again. This is a great example about how caught up people are in caring about what others think of them. Through the psychoanalytical approach we can see why people care what others think, how it relates to “The Historic Fart”, and how it is still prevalent in today’s culture. Everyone worries about what people think of them at some time or another, but why do we care so much?
Poe uses symbolism to unfold this scary tale of terror. The prince Prospero is plains a big party in his palace. “But the prince Prospero was happy and dauntless and sagacious” (poe.373).

Hugely overweight, his mind dulled by the pharmacopoeia he daily ingested, he was barely able to pull himself through his abbreviated concerts” (Thompson 137). Elvis suffered from multiple ailments such as: glaucoma, high blood pressure, liver damage, and an enlarged colon, each aggravated, and possibly caused, by drug abuse. Thompson also discovered that Presley was scheduled to fly out of Memphis on the evening of August 16, 1977, to begin another tour.
