Reflections of Edgar Allan Poe's Life in "The Masque of the Red Death" In the year 1842, Edgar Allan Poe wrote "The Masque of the Red Death." “Personal tragedy was, unfortunately, a recurring theme throughout Edgar Allan Poe’s life.” (Mondragon 1997) At the time this short story was written, Poe was experiencing another life-changing event which is clearly visible within the story. His wife, Virginia, showed her first sign of consumption, known in today’s society as Tuberculosis, and Poe knew her death was inevitable. "The Masque of the Red Death" in many ways, is riddled with references to her tuberculosis.

Attachment, loyalty and commitment are addressed as distortions of truth in these poems, with a voice that is mocking and cynical. In Gretel In Darkness, we hear the screech of a witch burning in the flames. In the Grimm’s fairytale, the witch’s death is a triumph because the children she has killed or tried to kill, like Hansel and Gretel, return home alive.
