His surroundings are conducive to the situation he finds himself in. The word "chamber" itself implies a cold, rigid feel, like the narrator has shut himself away from everything in order to be alone to brood and torture himself. The words "ghost" and "dying ember" give the reader a feeling of discomfort, like something is not quite right with the situation. The narrator opens the chamber door into darkness, deep darkness, and silence. He stands there, fearing what is before him, "dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before" (732).
If allowed to immediately leave, he believed they would experience pain from previously not moving, the light would dazzle their eyes, and they would be shocked at first seeing the light. Most importantly, however, the liberated prisoners would have difficulties coping with the new knowledge that the shadows they had always perceived as real were in fact illusions. After living their entire lives believing in the shadows, they wouldn’t be able to process reality. They would also suffer ever further due to their ignorance of reality as they are questioned and expected to know the identities of objects they have never seen before. These hardships would turn what should be an amazing moment, into a nightmare for these newly freed men, urging them back into the shadows that provide them the comfort of
I hold it to my skin, feeling it's steel. Throwing off my shoes, I climb into bed with my clothes on. I reach for the blanket, needing its self-erasing blackness, but I can't reach it.” Here, the narrator wants help, the narrator wants to find a place for themselves and their cruel, meaningless world, but they cannot get the help they need, why the narrator most likely has undiagnosed depression.

If this description is not enough, she also speaks of an ordeal that has to do with his physical behavior. “...putting out a hand, which he each time pressed, without very much kindness, and painfully pressed to one of the breast button of his uniform.” ( Bowen 1408). Her remembrance of these events and the description that we’re given coupled with the supernatural prescience of the letter and the Taxicab, leads us to see this lover as not only a man of bad character, but as a literal demon. This is only backed up by the ballad, where the man in the poem also acted as a villain and was later revealed to be a demon himself. This is told on lines 39 and 40, “When dismal grew his countenance / and drumlie grew his ee” (Demon lines 39 &40) as explanation of his poor will, and a description of his intimidating looks paralleled in Bowen’s story.
Invisible is usually defined as unable to be seen. Symbols were the major key that allowed this book to become significant to me. Living in a cold, cruel world really makes you hesitant to trust anyone and after reading Invisible Man, Ellison allowed me to put myself in the narrator’s shoes by his use of symbols, lessons presented, and
On a “midnight dreary,” the persona reads in an attempt to forget the passing of “ the rare and radiant maiden … Lenore” when he hears a knock at his door. Although the sound startles him, filling him with “fantastic terrors,” he eventually builds up the courage to answer the door, only to find nothing but darkness outside. As the persona stares “deep into … [the] darkness,” he starts “wondering, fearing, / [d]oubting, [and] dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream” before whispering the name of his lost love Lenore. Many of the words the speaker uses have negative connotations, which contribute to a dark, foreboding mood. For example, “darkness” implies mystery, obscurity and the presence of evil, while “fearing” and “[d]oubting” suggest insecurity and a lack of confidence.
Many children use nightlights when they go to bed in order to limit the darkness surrounding them; the darkness impairs vision, leaving them with an overwhelming feeling of vulnerability. Adults face this dilemma at times too; it is an instinct that has evolved with the human race. However, darkness is not only a reality, but it is also a symbol of fear as well. Emily Dickinson’s “419” and Robert Frost’s “Acquainted with the Night” use darkness and night as symbols of hope and desolation respectively, as revealed through the poets’ use of imagery, point of view, and structure, to disclose that darkness can either envelop or be overcome. In “419,” Dickinson’s darkness is a metaphor for the unknown.

The bunkhouse has a very unique atmosphere. For example, the walls are unpainted, the three walls are small, and the beds have little apple boxes for personal belongings. Though it seems when someone walks through the door a different feeling appears in the room. For example, when Curley walks in it feels as if the atmosphere is nasty and troublesome. When Curley 's wife walks in it feels as if there is an inconvenience or a disturbance throughout the house.
