Poe uses the tragic experiences of his childhood as a theme in his works, “Annabel Lee” and “The Masque of the Red Death.” Edgar Allan Poe’s poems are not like others, they are mysterious and have life stories applied to them. Many of Poe’s writings talk about love and loss, such as his poem “Annabel Lee”. The soul of his writing is based off on love and death of a beautiful young girl named Annabel Lee. Throughout the poem “Annabel Lee” Poe talks about the loss of Annabel Lee “And [how] neither the angels in Heaven above/ Nor the demons down under the sea/ Can ever dissever my soul from the soul/ Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; (Poe, “Annabel Lee” 30-33).

And thou and Romeo press one heavy bier.” (III.ii.60-61) In Act 3, Scene 3 Romeo much rather be dead than be banished and Friar Lawrence explains how ungrateful he is to be alive and that Juliet still loves him. Similarly, in Act 4, Scene 3 where Juliet is about to take the sleeping potion, she expresses how she would not mind if the potion killed her or caused her to go insane, but if she was alive and well she kill herself immediately. Doubleness is also part of theme in the story. Doubleness is deception or dissimulation. When Mercutio gets stabbed by Tybalt he says “Ay, ay, a scratch; marry ‘tis enough/ Where is my page?
In Act Three, Juliet finds out that Romeo had killed her cousin Tybalt: “O, find him! Give this ring to my true knight and bid him come to take his last farewell.” After she found out, she felt all this hatred towards him, but still decided she loved him.

Another reason why Juliet is a Mania lover is because she had a difficult relationship with her parents. “Out you green sickness carrion, you baggage, you tallow-face” (Shakespeare Act 3).

For instance, Myrtle Wilson had an affair with Tom Buchanan because he was wealthy. Evidently, Myrtle wanted to have a wealthy husband because as she talks about her wedding, she was very upset, she said, “He borrowed somebody’s best suit to get married in… I lay down and cried to beat the band afternoon”(Fitzgerald 35). Despite the harsh attack Tom had towards her, Myrtle still wanted him over her husband who loved her, but just was not wealthy.

Macbeth’s thoughts with his deep desires dismay him and he fails to share them openly so he sends a letter to Lady Macbeth clarifying the situation he is in.
