Storyboard Text

  • The Masque of Red Death  is an American Gothic story about the Black Plague that was spreading across Europe  and killing many poeple. 
  • Prince Prospero invited a thousand wealthy guests to stay with him in his castle to escape the plague. (Humans Are Not Naturally Good: he abandons his people to save himself and a select few) 
  • Six months into  the hideaway, the prince hosted an  extravagant masquerade ball for his guests.  
  • During the party, a figure appears wearing the masque of the Red Death  and the prince orders him to be captured and demasqued. 
  • The prince chases him down in the hallway but realizes the masque is not a masque at all, it is the Red Death. (Elements Of Fantasy And Supernatural: the "Red Death" person was not real) 
  • Everyone who was supposedly safe from the Red Death died.   (Emphasis On  Emotion, Nature, And The Individual: story shows that just because you are rich, does not mean you can escape disease)
