Question by Brittany D: Allegories From the Edgar Alan Poe “The Masque of the Red Death”?
Here are the allegories: THe palace, the prince, the masquerade, the clock and the masked figure. I need someone to tell me the possible meaning of each of these then the possible lesson of the story each of these might stand for. I really do not understand this stuff so if you are smart and can help me in anyway, that would be great. Thanks!
I know what the story is about roughly but these allegories are on a worksheet of mine and I do not know what to put for the meanings of them or the lesson of each of these allegories….again the allegories are: the clock, the prince, the number 7, the stranger, and the abbey. Please help me figure these allegories out, don’t give me just a summary of the story cause that’s not what I am looking for thanks!
