In Edgar Allan Poe’s works, such as Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, Annabel Lee, and The Fall of the House of Usher, Poe attracts his readers with his one-of-a-kind genre of gothic. Much of his gothic genre in his writings have been influenced by past event in his life. First of all, Poe had never really known his parents because his father had left the house and his mother had died of tuberculosis when he was only three years old. For these reasons, he went to live with Frances and John Valentine Allan, who helped him get into West Point. Unfortunately, Poe was kicked out of West Point because of his alleged poor handling of his duties and later married his cousin, Virginia, who was only 13, when he was 24 years old.

Two years later he published his first novel “Jill” in 1946. “High Windows”, “Aubade”, “The Less Deceived” and his other works consolidated his position in English literature. In October 1954 in an article “The Spectator” announced him as a member of The Movement group but on the contrary of this group he used senses as context, colloquial language and traditional form in his poetry. In his poem Aubade he writes on the basis of theme of death.

The power of these emotions is evident in Lord George Gordon Byron 's poems. In June of 1814, Lord Byron presents a short lyrical poem titled “She Walks in Beauty”, about when he met his cousin Mrs. Anne Wilmont. The story goes that Byron was so struck by the complexity of her beauty that he went home and wrote this poem about her. It can be stated that there is also a special complexity between light and darkness, and how light can be emitted through the darkness of night.
Faulkner is remembered for his unique writing style, especially in his book, As I Lay Dying. The two authors are compared to each other when comparing and contrasting different writing styles. Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner’s differing treatment of their audiences through inventive usage of sentence structure, point of view, and varied word choice exemplify the stark differences between them. Many of the contrasting characteristics of Faulkner and Hemingway’s writing forms, specifically sentence structure, originate from their upbringing. William Faulkner’s comfortable childhood and easy access to higher education in the South directly contrasts that of Ernest Hemingway, who grew up in the North and was unable to go to secondary school, joining the U.S. Army instead.

In her discussion of Gothic tropes, Anne Williams reveals that Female Gothic falls under the rubric of a marginalised genre while identifying the critical reception of the gothic in the pre-romantic era with the categorization of women as peripherized subjects, admitting that this literary form has been “congenial” to them and pleasantly suited to their lower social position (Fleenor The Female Gothic 8).
