Nancy Logan is a nervous desk clerk on her first day at the Grand Rockford Hotel. She is flat because we only see the nervous side of her. She is static because before she can learn her lesson she dies.
Room 213 is the antagonist because it is the leading causes to Nancy's mistakes. The room is a very creepy and burned down room in the Grand Rockford Hotel. It is flat because all we know is that it is haunted. It is static because before we learn anything it kills Nancy.
"The smoke and the smell of burning flesh overcame Nancy, and she fell to the floor. The fire crept up slowly at first. Then it leapt on her hungrily, until she was covered by flames"(25).
"She couldn't stand by the door all day. She had to do something. She compromised. She would open the door and just peek in from the hall. Turning the knob and pulling the door open was her second mistake of the day"(24).
"I have a seven o'clock wake-up call for 321. Is everything all right, sir?"(21)..."From the bed rose four black figures, rubbing chunks of charred flesh from their cheeks as they sleepily opened their empty eyes. A ghostly figure in a desk clerk's uniform crouched in terror near the phone, gasping over and over, "wake-up call! Wake-up call!"(25)
The mood is very creepy and evil and it is created by the room on fire sucking people in and burning them to death. The detailed imagery is very good for the mood and it makes the story kind of evil.
