Blood-Burning Moon

Louisa, a strong willed, attractive African American woman played a major role in this story, in which two men fall head over heels for her love. One man black, one white. We see at the end how Tom ends up killed Bob, and how the "Full Moon" acts as bad signs of fate possibly. Fulls moons were always thought of as the "bad nights where crazy people come out and act all funny." In this story, the moon acts as a crazy sign where Tom is overcome with bad spirits in killed Bob.

Throughout the story, I felt bad for Lousia, being able to try to bring the people together through her songs, and her attractiveness. In the end, she is most likely left all alone with no one. This story involved excellent imagery, and powerful emotional formats through character description.
