Just stop reading the book. Its not worth analyzing because it is really really boring.

I agree with all of you I was assigned to read this book in my English class and she didn't give us the whole book she only gave us a little bit of the story and we had to come up with a creative ending and I said to my mom how in the world am I suppose to come up with a creative ending if I don't understand the story at all, I mean it's a very boring story and I understand it after reading it about 10 times over and over and it's a very confusing story if you don't like to read literature like this story, anyways I just wanted to say that I agree with you all!!

I disagree with all you i thought it was a good story once you can see all the symbolism and u can read into the story. Everything resembles death: The clock\time the sound of the clock\ church bells at funural The BLACK room and most imporntantly Death itself( which was the ending where a guy in a masque of the red death appears and there is no body inside the cloak and mask

I find it it funny how u all come to this website and instead of givin an answer u add ur own questions and problems to the site. This site is not for u to post ur problems about how borin ur life is!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i actually have a logical answer to the problem but since all u bitches in here pissin me off im just gonna keep the answers to myself.

PS no ofense to whoever made this site when u leave a warning like "Please don't use a fake email address; it creates a lot of technical problems for the community. For example, this software will send you an email alert if someone responds to your message and those alerts will bounce back to us if the address you type isn't valid." it makes them more interseted in doin it. Its human nature.

I would have to agree with most of you about writing a paper. i have to write a 3 page essay on the meaning of the number 7 and what it has to do with the stories by Poe. it's difficult but interesting.
