Where there is a departure from the traditional gothic, they still point us to something unknown or strange.The manner in which John keeps her confined to her room for “rest” is chilling and can be seen as controlling as we will explore further. The other features of the room, however, the barred windows for instance and the wallpaper and the feeling they engender cannot be fully understood through any other lens. The Gothic horror story carries conventions in its setting, theme, point of view, and characterisation.

Concealing the Truth People have countless ways to express how they are feeling. One possibility can be writing a story to hide the ugly truth.

Though this theme is well supported the down side is,the difference between these two is that, in “A Rose for Emily” in the middle of all this tragedy she tried to work through it, but then decided that she couldn’t and in “The Outsiders” Dally did not even try to work through his loss he just reacted without even considering the fact of living through his loss. Likewise the authors in both stories show imagery,use metaphors,similes and personification to hook people into their storey. The imagery written by the authors is used because they want you to feel bad for the characters,the similes are used to make you think more, and the metaphors in both stories allow you to laugh and feel bad for the characters. Also both stories use a hook to grab the reader 's attention both stories have a lot of things in common and these craft moves are just a few of the things that make these two so similar.

The Ultimate Perfectionist Many authors in American literature tend to use common themes or outcomes in their writings that can or cannot pertain to real life experiences. Hopefully not many times in ones life does someone hear about a person being murdered solely because of his or her imperfections; however, this outcome seems to be very common in two of our famous writer’s short stories. In both Nathaniel Hawthorn’s “The Birthmark” and Edgar Allen Poe’s “A Tell Tale Heart,” both of the main characters develop such an unnecessary, obsessive hatred with someone’s imperfection that they go to ultimate measures to eliminate them forever. When comparing these two short stories, it is evident to see how both of these themes are concentrated around the idea that one physical imperfection can be a mark of moral shortcoming.
The narrator was disappointed and upset because his brother was different, the narrator wanted a normal brother; however, throughout the short story the narrator’s negative attitude starts to change.

The narrator stated “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow” (Hurst 485). This quotation shows the narrator’s disappointment and cruelty towards his brother. The narrator is very cruel because he is willing to kill his brother because he is disabled.
During the 1800s Dark Romanticism, sometimes referred to as Gothic Romanticism, entered the world of literature. Unlike the writings before this time, Dark Romanticism showed the sinful thoughts that had not been previously shown in the world. Unlike the previous fiction stories or novels such as fairytales that used creative, positive stories to escape reality, these dark and sometimes supernatural writings eluded reality by taking its readers into disturbing and sometimes sacrilegious situations. Edgar Allan Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne both used symbols to illustrate elements of Dark Romanticism. The symbols within the stories of these great writers revealed the impending darkness and gloom that characterized Dark Romanticism.
Banquo’s appearance causes Macbeth to look like a madman because he is alarmed by the ghost coming back to haunt him because of the terrible deed he has done. This piece of evidence is an example of the beginning of Macbeth’s inner conflict. As the play comes to a close, possession within relationships is refined when Macbeth no longer needs the influence of others, he has become berserk in sticking to the commitment to do what he has to do in order to become a forceful king. Shakespeare justifies this by “I’ll fight till from my bones my flesh be hacked. Give me my armor.
Edgar Allan Poe was an American author; he mainly focused in genres such as short stories and poems. Poe didn’t have much of an academic background in literature but, he excelled in it. Some people believe that his success was mostly due to the fact that his life was very sad, filled by a series on misfortunate events, such as being an orphan, suffering from poverty and being constantly surrounded by death.

But we can see after he finds out about the truth, he is forced to act because of his morality beliefs. The battle in Hamlet’s tragedy occurs in a dynamic society that is created by opposing forces that contradict with each other and Hamlet is a philosophical prince who blames the court for impunity, injustice, and murder; and all of these problems prevents him from being a part of court’s social life and he becomes depressed. Hamlet’s deep depression effects on his behaviors until he even doesn’t act like prince and becomes mad. His madness effect on his judgment and makes him to become obsessed with the death; even he sees death as the only way to take revenge. We can see that Hamlet explores death in every facet of the play from many different angles and how he develops his definition of death from the materially to morality perspective.
