Impetuosity - acting quickly without thought or care. syn: defiance ant:calm
An egress is an exit and was used in the story of Edgar Allan Poe "The Masque of the Red Death". It was used by the narrator telling the viewers or readers that no one can ingress and/or egress from Prince Prospero's abbeys. Meaning that those friends of his that he invited to be in his abbeys shall not leave, or egress, because of the red death, and those that he did not invite were left outside to die.
In "The Masque of the Red Death", the narrator describes the struck of the hour and the sound coming from the brazen lungs of the clock that was loud and clear. It gives off a sense to the readers by which the clock is a big mysterious object that is bold, or brazen, from the struck of the hour.
in "The Masque of the Red Death", when the cloaked figure walked through the six rooms, Prince Prospero could not hold himself back any further. With fast impetuosity, he took a dagger and run towards the cloaked figure and within 3 or 4 feet, the cloaked figure turned around and faced Prince Prospero.
