Obsession is the control of one's thoughts or feelings by an idea or desire. Dark Romantic authors have used and portrayed the idea of obsession in their works to convey strong senses, emotions, and feelings. The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a perfect example of a woman's thoughts controlling her life in every way possible. In the story The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe, the narrator’s obsession with an object leads them to commit a cold hearted murder. Both stories depict the theme of obsession because the characters are fixated on their own thoughts and desires than on reality itself.

In Edgar Allan Poe’s “The of the House of Usher” and Julio Cortazar’s “House Taken Over”, the settings are similar because they both took place in a creepy house. However, in Poe’s story, the setting is the old house falling apart. By contrast, Cortazar’s setting the house is old but in good condition.
The setting shapes the mood and tone of a story and has a great affect on what happens in a story. The setting influences the events that take place, how the characters interact and even how they behave. Settings show where and how the character lives, what they do, and what they value. Characters have a relationship with the setting just as much as they do with other characters in the story. This is seen in the effects the setting has on the development of the Character Elisa in the story “The Chrysanthemums.”
The Scarlet Ibis and Sucker are two amazing short stories, you can put them in comparison and see that they have numerous similarities and differences.

Conflict is what drives all stories, but stories with similar themes may use them differently in order to give different lessons and persuade you to form different opinions.

Each set of characters portray emotions and contribute strong relationships to the theme, but Gene focuses on his struggles and acts out in ways that add to the theme of envy, while Liesel controls her emotions more and engages in conversation with others. This allows the reader to forcibly focus on the developing theme through Gene’s jealous emotions.

Similarly, the narrators speak in first person and talk of others, but again, Gene is so focused on his struggles that the reader can get a deeper look at how the theme develops. Death, being an overseer, spends more time narrating the lives and stories of many people, which can add extra knowledge that draws the reader’s thoughts away from the theme. Another element that supports A Separate Peace is the setting. In The Book Thief, Liesel lives in a town where she can freely run off with Rudy and avoid conflicts at home, school, or negative thoughts, so this helps conflicts to settle down quickly and let a new rabbit hole in the story commerce. The era in which the stories unravel in is the same, which contributes to similarities in conflict, but the strict, crowded atmosphere of Devon Boarding school allows for a dark mood and more man versus man conflict to emerge, building on to the theme. Continuing on with conflict, both of the stories involve
