fall of the house of ushergreenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread
If you had to do a detailed style of the setting in the Fall of the House of Usher, what ideas could you give me?

Poe is presenting it as a dream world, the narrator is in a dream world. He is hearing things as if he is in a dream. Usher is decaying, his house is decaying. The house falls apart and Usher is workin up. ***Poes sub-conscience is writing about his conscience*** The reliabilty of teh narrator - you the reader is the narrator. You are watching the fall of an individual.
HOPE THIS HELPS...
