The story "The Mask Of The Red Death" is a somewhat spooky story and i thought this picture gave off a spooky vibe. "No pestilence has ever been so fatal. Blood was its avatar and its seal." This quote tells about the disease which is somewhat spooky itself.
The masked figure comes into the party and everyone looks at him. the quote "even with the utterly lost, to with and death are equally jests, there are matters of which no jest can be made," kind of shows just how offensive the costume of the figure was.
in this slide i chose this picture because it shows that the party chases after the masked figure to find him and hang him at dawn. this was the rising action because it happened right before the climax. the quote "At first as he spoke, there was a slight rushing movement of this group in the direction of the intruder," shows the prince and his men chasing the figure.
this slide depicts how the angry prince was the only one to follow the masked figure to the violet room since all of his subordinates ran in fear. the quote "maddening with rage and the shame of his own momentary cowardice, rushed hurriedly trough the six chambers, while none followed him on account of a deadly terror that had seized upon all," shows this.
this slide shows that the prince falls dead to the red death. "there was a sharp cry and and the dagger dropped gleaming upon the sable carpet, upon which, instantly afterwards, fell prostrate in death the prince." this quote shows this.
the prince is dead and the red death has consumed all. the quote "And darkness and decay and the red death held illimitable dominion over all. The end." shows this.
