In The Masque of the Red Death Poe leads one event into another often He uses much symbolism and in the paragraphs below I will show you it In the first couple of paragraphs however I will summarize In this plot Poe begins by talking about the Red Death basically setting the stage for later events in the story Then he talks about Prince Prospero which tells the reader that Prospero and the Red Death will have a conflict later in the story Next Poe gives a short summary of the setting and also mentions that the Red Death was not there After this Poe gives a description of the rooms The first room had blue ornaments and windows Poe then makes each room darker until he gets to the seventh which is black This shows that death is coming to Prospero Also in the seventh room the windows are blood red which also shows that the Red Death is coming Also the ebony clock keeps on ticking which is slowly setting up the conflict Prince Prospero vs The Red Death Also the color of the wood is also symbolic Ebony is black so again death is symbolized At the end or conclusion the clock strikes 12 and The Red Death makes its appearance and kills Prospero In the plot I believe that the talking about the Red Death and Prospero is the introduction because it introduced the two big influences in the story I also think that the descriptions of the rooms is the rising action because it gives the setting for the conflict The conflict is Prospero trying to avoid the The falling action in the story is when Prospero is caught by the Red Death and the conclusion is that he is deadThe theme of the story is that you cannot escape death no matter how hard you try In the story Prospero tried to escape it and look what happened
