Schite, nuvele, povestiri Polirom,tabloul complet al nuvelisticii lui Edgar Allan Poe, unul dintre cei mai provocatori scriitori ai secolului XIX, cu o influenta considerabila asupra literaturii americane si europene, parinte al prozei politiste si precursor al prozei SF si horror.

Astfel, peisajele servind ca fundal febrilelor lui compozitii capata paloarea unor fantome. I allna, but it still strikes me as a strange and incomplete story; though now that I have a deeper understanding of Poe’s roosii at the time of writing it, it makes more sense than it did originally. A Prose Poem Once the chiming stops, everyone immediately resumes the masquerade.

I get that this story is one giant allegory for the plague, but why? Poe, care arareori pare sa fi impartasit pasiunile altor oameni, schiteaza arbori si nori care sint aidoma arborilor si norilor dintr-un vis, sau, si mai bine, care se aseamana cu personajele lui stranii, la fel de adinc patrunse de un tremur supranatural si convulsiv.

Our “hero”–the ironically-named Prince Prospero–does not fare well in this piece and receives a nasty shock concerning who his nemesis really is: About Edgar Allan Poe. Views Read Edit View history. I rosoi expecting this to be an amazing short story. The Best Ghost Stories I’m not sure what to make of this. Weird story, but amazing writing!


The Masque of the Red Death – Wikipedia

That being said, there are some truly great lines. At least it read fast and I didn’t feel disappointed at the end; nor did I feel it was a waste of my time.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Alternatively, the Red Death may refer to cholera ; Poe would have witnessed an epidemic of cholera in Baltimore, Maryland in It’s still good and one can appreciate that was he was one of the OGs of the genre but it’s just not as terrifying And the association with this particular illness is the “black death,” i. In the midst of their revelry, a mysterious figure disguised as a Red Death victim enters and makes his way through each of the rooms.

Under this interpretation, Poe is seeking refuge from the dangers of the outside world, and his al,an of himself as the only person willing to confront the stranger is emblematic of Poe’s rush towards inescapable dangers in his own life.

I’ve never read anything by Poe before, so this was a bit of a letdown.

In this story I felt that the build-up of the story took two long and it didn’t really create a creepy atmosphere like mortil for example “The Black Cat”.

The story follows Prince Prospero’s attempts to avoid a dangerous plagueknown as the Red Death, by hiding in his abbey.


Like the character Prince Prospero, Poe tried roski ignore the fatality of the disease. Not fazed in the slightest.

The “red death” is obviously allegorical of the inevitability of death. Blood, emphasized throughout the tale, along with the color red, serves as a dual symbol, representing both death and life. Would you like us to take another look at this review? Open Preview See a Problem?

Never too Late to When the figure turns to face him, the Prince lets out a sharp cry and falls dead. Poe describes it as causing “sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores” leading to death within half an hour.

Prospero holds a masquerade ball one night to entertain his guests in seven colored rooms of the abbey. Like many of Poe’s tales, “The Masque of the Red Death” has been interpreted autobiographically, by some.

Reading it now many years later, I thought I would glean more from it. Only then do they realize the figure is the Red Death itself, and all of the guests contract and succumb to the disease.
