One of Poe's Best

| | Comments (0)

Masque of the Red Death is one of my favorite Poe stories. I think there's going to be a movie about some of his short stories.

"And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all" (pg 10).

As humans, we are terrified of death so we do anything we possibly can to ward it off. Death is always made out to be the villain. The simple fact is that in the end, death ends up being the winner. It doesn't matter what we do, death will come whether we like it or not as evidenced in the story.
