Poe explains how the appliances of the pleasure that he had given to the party give the people a sense of security within, without it is the red death.
  • The black and red room is a symbol that explains the future. Also the coming of a red death. It says no one will set foot in the room unless they are bold enough. Unless you get over the fear of death, you cannot be in this room.
  • The Ebony clock is a symbol. When it ticks it reminds us the time we have left. The "red death" will come, and it will just keep ticking and reminds us that we will come to an end very soon. In the story Poe adds that the clang of the clock makes to indicate the hour stops the music that plays.
