Marigolds by Eugenia W. Collier and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee are very similar in their settings and moods. For example, in Marigolds the narrator indicates that all she can remember from her hometown is dust and poverty, which shows this was during the Great Depression.

Another example is, the mood in Marigolds is very depressing, you get this mood because the narrator says things like, “I suppose the futile waiting was the sorrowful background music of our impoverished little community.” The mood is like this in To Kill a Mockingbird as well. For example, Scout talks about how Walter Cunningham
The brother, Roderick Usher, is very obviously not well as he calls for his childhood friend to come and try and cheer him up. While our narrator is trying to cheer Roderick up, Lady madeline, Rodericks sister, passes away and is buried under the house of Usher. This is when the other side of Romanticism come in. All through the night the characters hear scratches coming from the door to the basement all of a sudden the “huge antique panels to which the speaker pointed threw slowly back, upon the instant, their ponderous and ebony jaws. It was the work of the rushing gust—but then without those doors there did stand the lofty and enshrouded figure of the lady Madeline of Usher” (Page number).

This whole neighborhood could have gone up,” which represents the prejudice in Maycomb and how dangerous it could be if it

In the poem Schizophrenia, when expressed “It was the house that suffered the most” it proceeds on to say that it began with slamming doors and angry feet scuffing the carpet. Dishes were left unwashed and it was certain doors that were locked at night. Neighbors referred to the house as a madhouse. My interpretation of this poem was that the house is personified within it. It was described as if the house was turning on itself, I imagine that the author implied the house as if it was a person with schizophrenia.
These people were regretfully left to die, and the Warrens would conclude that it is no wonder this property had so much darkness clouding over it. All of the dark, negative energy was left behind by those who previously resided over the land which consequently attracted dark spirits into the home which would be later built on the land in 1924. The Warrens felt the need to cleanse the house of all of its evil; and while not easy, it is believed to have been successful. Prior to this, however, Ronald and Louise Defeo assumed ownership over the home and resided in it along with their five children. On November 13th of 1974, the eldest child, Ronald Defeo Jr. (Butch) who at the time was 23 years old, ran into a nearby bar asking for help claiming that his family had been shot.

In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily”, the accumulation of dust in Miss Emily’s house reinforces her static and perverse character. The townspeople describe Emily’s house as full of “dust and shadows” (105), “lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps – an eyesore among eyesores” (98) for generations after generations. The house’s poor, dust-filled condition symbolizes its owner’s unflinching denial to new changes. Furthermore, the loss of her father drives Emily to act on her tenacious impulse to forestall time.
