Taifi 1 find the small mistakes like grammar or spelling. The one thing that helped me was your comment professor, after reading over your comment I got a sense of what you really want to see in the paper, I follow each comment until the very end and that was very helpful. One problem that i find myself doing is not reading outside what I wrote, I tend to write and read at the same time and it is hard to find the small mistakes. Jihane Taifi May /10/2018 Prof. Leston Final Draft The Symbolism in The Masque of the Red Death The author Edgar Allan Poe uses symbolism in the story “The Masque of The Red Death” to show us the different colors of the rooms, the impressive clock, and the feeling of the celebration being at a party all makes this story feel like a fairytale, which later will converts into nightmare. Throughout the paper the characteristics of prince Prospero will occur. While reading the story I felt fear because of prince Prospero's’ characteristics. Him and his friends seemed to live for pleasure. He seemed very selfish. Some important themes that occur are the seven colors of each room. Each color mean something different. For example the black room or the bloody red room meant death. Whereas, the blue room meant life. However, prince Prospero is planning to have an unforgettable night while the village people are dying by the Red Death. The Red Death is a disease that had arrive to the village. It kills the person within minutes and leave red bloody color in the person’s face. It just started in the village and it had already killed half of the kingdom. Prince Prospero was happy and didn’t seem to care about his village nor about his people. Instead he invited all his rich friends to the castle so that they could be safe. Within the party the prince had all the things a person needs like buffoons, ballet dancers, musicians, as well as beauty and wine. All this so that the prince and his friends will be happy and enjoy these nights. After reading the short story, I know was asked whether I would like to turn this story in to film, if so I was asked whether I will stay faithful to the original source. You might be wondering what I mean by faithful, well since it will be in a different medium it need to change

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
