This indication of individuality suggests how he is the protagonist who disturbs the smooth social workings of his community. He asserts his own will against the rules of the community and brings tragedy upon all of the families to which he belongs or to which he is dramatically connected. He is driven by deep passion, as his furious travels by horse to and from the Bride’s house demonstrate. Leonardo’s fateful decision to deny the bonds of matrimony in favor of his abiding desire for the Bride occurs only when the Bride is certain to be married to another. This suggests the manner in which Leonardo’s actions are motivated by possessiveness, where as long as the Bride belongs to no other, Leonardo can tolerate their separation.

While “The Masque of the Red Death,” has messages relating to death and the eneviatably of running away from things that are already set to happen, “The Garden of Stubborn Cats,” focuses more on the lack of mystery of the natural world caused by man’s nature to become more in control of things that go around them. But, in comparison, both stories deal with forces that have been personified, things that cannot be avoided, and becoming things that one fears. “The Masque of the Red Death,” has an abundant amount of symbolism that ranges from subtle details, to plain out personification throughout the story.

He spent a great deal of time on this sword and expected a reward of equal value.
