This worksheet is meant to assess students' understanding of some of the symbolism and themes from Poe's "Masque of the Red Death." It covers the symbolism of colors, 7 stages of man, and 7 deadly sins. This will help students understand how a symbol represents an idea or theme. Read the excerpt from Shakespeare's "As You Like It" with students first (included in file).
