Product Description
This 38-slide annotated Power Point presentation focuses on how Poe uses the house as a metaphor for the psychological (and physical) deterioration of the insular Usher family. Poe published “The Fall of the House of Usher” in the September 1839 volume of Burton’s Gentleman’s Magazine. It is a prime example of Poe’s exploration of the “realms of psychological darkness” in a Gothic thriller. Elements of Goth Literature, Poe’s use of doubling or “mirror” images (including his use of a “frame within a frame construction), the narrator’s complicity in burying Madeline alive, discussions of allusions that add depth and texture to the story, and careful consideration of Poe’s diction are some of the topics included. Themes of: incest, deterioration/decay, isolation and its effects on the Ushers are addressed. Included are “Suggested Readings” and addresses of helpful web sites. Students will enjoy the visuals in this presentation. In fact, many of the slides can be used as writing prompts. Some sound effects.
