68 Words1 Page

Many people believe that fear can result into harm or negative emotions. Fear helps to prevent harm, creates more awareness, and has an instinct that can save lives. On the other side, fear can cause paranoia, obsession, hallucination, and can take away the fun in life. Throughout the stories, Poe uses symbolism, irony, and imagery to define how fear can limit the narrator's minds and lead to fear.
