Amontillado, The Tell-Tale Heart, And Masque Of The Red Death

Satisfactory Essays
How do the events in a writer's life affect his or her writing? People have both easygoing and rough days in life. The combination of both of these days affect people’s mood and outlook towards life. If a writer has seen many rough days and not many smooth ones, will their writing suggest their troubled past? Yes! Edgar Allan Poe, for example, an American writer and poet, for having been troubled throughout his life, wrote many stories of dread and tragedy. The source of Poe’s dread, including alcoholism and death, is shown through his writing in the Cask of The Amontillado, The Tell Tale Heart, and the Masque of the Red Death.
