Down in the Pit The Pit and the Pendulum by Edger Allan Poe is a thrilling story about life in a dark pit or cell This story shows that life isnt always great and the only thing that can save man from hell is god The setting irony and point of view help express the theme Down in the pit for only believing in his own faith I was sick unto death with that long agony and when they at unbound me and I was permitted to sit I felt that my senses were leaving me 168 Sick from the dirty and disgusting living quarters he could only think about death He was now going insane from the torture and the thought of death I felt that I lay upon my back unbound 170 After sleeping a long time and not knowing why he was he could move freely he began to wonder With his eyes still shut he began to get up the courage to open his eyes but to his worst thoughts nothing but blackness All of this for living life the way he had wanted The cell has more to it than expected My outstretched hands at length encountered some solid obstruction 170 After getting up enough courage he got up a started to try and find a wall Much to his relief one was found without injury He just had to know how big it was I tore a part of the hem from the robe and placed the fragment at full length and at right angles to the wall 171 Hoping to make his way around the whole cellar and back to the part of his robe he set off With the ground being moist and slippery each step had to be places every so carefully not to fall This plan did not work and he fell and did not get up until he was done sleeping
