in both poems the caructures are trying to hide, to run away from death.

The settings are differant, one is in a carnival\party and the other is in a dreary old cursed house. In the Masque of Red Death it is a plague and the safe zone is inside and in the fall of the house of Usher out side is the safe zone and it is a curse.

Wow that Rachel or however you spell that name several ways to, can't spell if a grammar book had bit her in the ass. I am also looking for compare and contrast and found next to nothing here, Sarah came the closet, so keep posting people...

May I ask As to why people with no real valid comments and nasty words are replying in ignorance. I think this is just for people who having something good to contribute to the effort. As for me, the Fall of the House of Usher concerns a man who is dying but not because of sin, while the prince and his party guest all die because of their arrogance and lack of compassion for the people who suffer. Make sense?
