    THE "Red Death" had long devastated the country. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal --the redness and the horror of blood. There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores, with dissolution.

    My Experience with Revenge It is possible to say that I know quite a lot about the revenge. I saw its examples both in the literature (cinema) and the real life.

Another flashback to the past that is unconventionally evident in this concerto is “organicism,” which in music, means that all of the movements of a piece are thematically related.
