Although The Masque of the Red Death and The Fall of the House of Usher are written in different view points the fact that each method works well for each story is true because third-person helps to better oversee all the events taking place first-person gives a heightened sense of intensity and if each stories view point was switched then the two stories would not be the timeless classics that they are today The Masque of the Red Death written by Edgar Allen Poe in the third-person point of view is a horror fiction story where a prosperous and flashy king decides to keep his friends and family inside his of abbey in order to protect them from a Tuberculosis outbreak The setting is that of a large party many rooms and people all together dancing talking and enjoying themselves Since the story is written in the third-person the reader can overlook all happenings and events in the entire abbey and occasionally see things that will happen before they actually do This can add excitement to stories such as this one Knowing what is going to happen to whom and how gives a person the will to keep reading and discover what is going to happen next If the reader knows the outcome and the characters in the story do not it makes for an interesting storyline Just as in The Masque of the Red Death readers knew that the masked person was there to take all of their lives via the Red Death but nobody could really be sure of that while the grand party was going on The Fall of the House of Usher is another horror fiction story written by Edgar Allen Poe It is set in a large decaying old house where many crazy and creepy things begin to happen and the fear factor is raised while reading this story due to the fact that Poe wrote it in the first-person
