Holden Caulfield's Red Hunting Hat is a symbol of his individual personality, of protection, and attachment to childhood whether he is wearing it or giving it to someone else. Holden puts on his Red Hunting Hat around different people because he cares about how his appearance looks to others. While walking in New York, Holden, "...put on this hat that I'd bought in New York that morning. It was this red hunting hat, with one of those very, very long peaks" (17).

Since at the beginning, Poe has also stated that: “Blood was its avatar and its seal – the redness and the horror of blood. (…) The scarlet stains upon the body and especially upon the face of the victim, were the pest ban which shut him out from the aid and from the sympathy of his fellow-men.” The Red Death takes the form of a victim who could have already come into the castle along with the disease and colored signature mark to signify the resemblance of death and disease itself. So far Poe has used symbolism in "Masque of The Red Death" and showing readers how death comes at the end of every life cycle. Symbolism takes place in many forms like how the red death is the disease in the story, along with the bizarre masquerade, the clock of time, and the color of life. Not only does he describe these things in his story, but also foretells how even the wealthiest richest man such as Prince Prospero, cannot escape or outwit

This metaphor is introduced in the first lines of the sonnet, “Whoso list to hunt, I know where is an hind, / But as for me, alas, I may no more.” In this very first line, Wyatt is stating to whoever likes to hunt, that he knows where there is a hind, however he no longer hunts. In this context, a “hind” is referring to a female deer, in which metaphorically is beautiful woman, and the “hunt” can either mean a literal hunt where the men are pursuing to kill a wild animal (OED 1) such as the deer, or more metaphorically referring to searching determinedly (OE 2) for to the courtship of the woman. In the second line, Wyatt utilizes commas around the word “alas” then shortly after ending the sentence. This usage of punctuation gives the impression that the hunt has caused a fatigue status and that he is breathless. Moreover, in the same quatrain, Wyatt says, “The vain travail hath wearied me so sore, / I am of them that farthest cometh

For each killer, they all have uniquely different stories, so my personal goal was to find someone I have never heard with an “off the wall” story. As I came across the name of Albert Fish and briefly skimmed material it was without a doubt horrific to imagine. It was incredibly disturbing to me to discover in reading, not only were his targets children, but that fact that he mailed each victim’s parent(s) a letter detailing their murder. For many years the boogeyman may have been some tall-tale story haunting the lives of children as they lay wide away in bed at night in fear of shutting his or her eyes. When in reality, Hamilton Howard “Albert” Fish was a living nightmare literally feasting on the soles of innocent
