Edith Matilda Thomas, in her vehement sonnet “Winter Leafage,” asserts that we should not “cling” to our past. To develop her claim, Thomas begins by first using imagery to describe a tree that refuses to let go of summer; the tree is “dry, wan, and shivering” in the winter weather because it is clothed in garments that are meant for the summer and this serves to show that by holding onto the past, we fail to live in the present; second, the tree is compared to a “palsied miser” and this reveals how pointless it is for the tree to be holding onto something that has passed; third, personification is used when the tree is said to “sigh, moan, and sing,” which makes a connection between the tree and humans so that it can better be understood that
In stanza 12, line 5, the poem reads: "...this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore." shows his loneliness and he can feel the presents of a ghost of the dead.

The setting takes place in the chamber, probably the library or study room of his rich uncle with lost of books around him sitting there reading books trying to get his mind of Lenore when he falls asleep.

“He knew that a fifty below spittle crackled on the snow, but this spittle crackled in the air. Undoubtedly it was colder than fifty below how much colder he did not know. But the temperature did not matter” (111). Under normal circumstance spit does not freeze in the air nor does on the ground.

Without the creepy settings, the stories would not be as scary. In “Fall of the House of Usher”, Poe uses words to create a terrifying castle surrounded by dead trees and an overall sense of dread and death. “…With the first glimpse of the building, a sense of insufferable gloom pervaded my spirit.” The setting plays a great role in this story because the house is connected to Mr. Usher.

Pathetic fallacy, is used to compare him to ‘wind that blew’ as it shows scrooge to be predictable and unwanted like wind which is undesirable during winter- with the exception that Scrooge is undesirable seasonally.
