Product Description
This essay prompt asks students to analyze several texts, including a biographical video, "The Masque of the Red Death", and a William Shakespeare poem in order to synthesize how life experiences, outside influences, and author craft (this focuses on symbolism) add depth and meaning to a writer's product — in this case Edgar Allan Poe's short story.

This package includes an overview, task, requirements, text list, link to the biography, rubric, notes sheet, and a thoroughly completed notes sheet for guided thinking about symbolism in "The Masque of the Red Death".
