  • This looks scary..
  • Tortured characters
  • What!?
  • I'm going to perish and Madeline has a disease.
  • strange plot
  • Why do I feel the urge to look into the dark..?
  • "...upon the bleak walls --upon the vacant eye-like windows --upon a few rank sedges --and upon a few white trunks of decayed trees..."
  • dramatic description
  • So super unnatural and spooky...
  • "He suffered much from a morbid acuteness of the senses..." "The disease of the lady Madeline had long baffled the skill of her physicians."
  • gloomy mood
  • *Mumble mumble sad noises*
  • !?
  • "...and, peering earnestly within the intense darkness of the chamber, hearkened --I know not why, except that an instinctive spirit prompted me..."
  • recurring symbolism

  • "...yet we had no glimpse of the moon or stars --nor was there any flashing forth of the lightning. But the under surfaces of the huge masses of agitated vapour..."

  • "...I saw that his lips trembled as if he were murmuring inaudibly. His head had dropped upon his breast...for he rocked from side to side with a gentle yet constant and uniform sway..."
  • "...there was a long tumultuous shouting sound like the voice of a thousand waters --and the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently over the fragments of the "HOUSE OF USHER."
