The Masque of the Red Death
Drawing of Prince Prospero
Afraid, but still cocky in posture. Hands on hips to show his confidence and dominance over kingdom.
Crown has sapphire on it for his birth month, September
Dressed in 1800s wear
Prince Albert style
The Red Death
Looming over his body, seeming very scary. It makes him sweat because he realises he cannot block it anymore.
Has arms in it to show how many victims it has taken; one with a hand or arm, legs, eyes, etc.
Literally make it red since it is the red death
Make it look kind of like this.
Based on the descriptions that they provided about the windows. In one room they were pink and purple, elegant designs.
Add mood in the window pane
Dramatic and suspenseful
"And then for a moment, all is still, and all is silent save for the voice of the clock" (pg 6)
"His vesture was dabbled in blood - and his broad brow... was be-sprinkled with the serous of horror" (pg 8).
Figurative language under the window
Imagery - "It's pendulum swung to and fro - with a dull, heavy, monotonous clang" (pg 5).
Personification - "... presence of the Red Death. He had come like a thief in the night" (pg 10).
Allusion - "Much of what has been since seen in "Hernani"" (pg 6).
Greed is the worst kind of evil
He seems to take his entire life for granted, living in a palace made of the richest things. He takes his worth for granted.
"Who dares insult us with this blasphemous mockery?" (pg 8)
Ignorance is bliss
The Prince decides to ignore his own people in their deepest time of need. While they are suffering with the plague, he holds a masquerade.
"The external world could take care of itself" (pg 1).
"...impulses of despair or of frenzy from within" (pg 1).
