Both the reader and Utterson share the same sense of mystery, fear and the situation that slowly unfolds in front of them.

The human body is physiologically made up of primarily three qualities. People paint each one in their own way; The conscious mind holds its walls up towards reality and rational occurances, while behind that layer is the unconscious mind that pushes the boundaries of our reality --perhaps even supernatural beings -- and both of these are tied to the soul: the purity and core existence for homosapians. Thus, this idea gets expanded on--even crosses the line--during the short story “The Fall of the House of Usher” by Edgar Allan Poe. During the story, the narrator goes to visit his ill friend Roderick Usher in his home and while there, he experiences rather bizarre situations that is merely brushed away until the very arch at the end of the story.

“And they all lived together in a little crooked house,” Sophia, the granddaughter of the Aristide Leonides, said quietly. This statement is very enigmatic and mysterious.

Greg Ousley Greg Ousley at age 14 was convicted of the murder of his two parents Bonnie and Jobie on Feb. 23, 1993.On June 26, 2012, the supreme court was to make a decision on his whether he should be released, and it was decided that he will stay in prison. Greg has spent 24 years in prison thinking about what he has done and there should be a decision to be made in March 2019 having to do with his case. In my opinion, Greg should be released and paroled in 2019, Although he has a life sentence I think it is best that he connects with the real world out of prison. At the age of 14, Greg Ousley's brain had not been developed to fully understand the consequences of his actions. Before he murdered his parents there had been signs that he was struggling but there was no acknowledgment towards him, therefore, he is not fully at fault.
