Edger Allen Poe is an incredible author of horror. His story, The Masque of the Red Death, was an amazing chiller about a party that was ended by a disease. Throughout the kingdom a disease is spreading from citizen to citizen, killing each one who possesses it so the king invites those closes to him to a party where no one can leave and will be safe from the disease but yet in hindsight they were locking themselves in with the disease.

As stated by the author Giovanni Boccaccio himself, “[Some people] held that plenty of drinking and enjoyment, singing and free living and the gratification of the appetite in every single way, letting the devil take the hindmost… for everyone had abandoned all responsibilities for his belongings as well as for himself, considering his days numbered” (page 286).

The Masque of the Red Death In “The Masque of the Red Death” by Edgar Allan Poe, Poe uses imagery and symbolism to create an allegory that communicates to the reader that the town has been struck by an epidemic of a deadly disease that seems to be incurable.
