Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Poe Project By Dimitri Bramwell Poe wrote all his short stories based on what we now refer to as Gothic Elements. The three short stories were no exception. The Fall of the House of Usher contained a lonesome character, Phillip Winthrop. It alsocontained a super natural house just to name a couple. The Balloon Hoax was completely made up. It was super natural in a sense that the balloon didn't exist nor the voyage or any technology that could mimic the story. Lastly, The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether contained a lonely character, Poe, who was in the mix of a bunch of insane people. The imagery of the insane asylum kind of copied the visuals of the Usher House. A story completely made up, about a ground breaking invention; the balloon which was capable of holding human passengers. The Balloon had multiple features to control height, direction, and speed with a basket for theeight voyagers. In the balloon they traveled across the Atlantic Ocean. The time it took was 75 hours, tremendously faster then any ship could navigate the waves. The journey was also very safe and they landed in South Carolina. The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether The Balloon Hoax A Story about Poe traveling in France and visiting a private insane asylum. The Insane asylum practiced a controversial technique where the patients were allowed to roam freely. It ended up not working, because the insane people took over the place andlocked the keepers in the cells they were previously held in. The Keepers in the end took the place over and Poe escaped. The Fall of the House of Usher A Story about a man named Phillip Winthrop who falls in love with Madeline Usher. He goes to her house to propose to her but her brother is crazy with superstitious beliefs and doesn't let her go. The House seems supernatural and tries to kill or repel Phillip too. Phillip learns about the messed up Usher past but tries to break the chain with Madeline. In the end Madeline goes insanefrom her brother trying to kill her in a last ditch effort keep the chain in tact. The house catches on fire while Madeline is killing her brother and the only one who escapes is Phillip. The Short Stories reflect Poe's life in the following ways. The House of Usher probably was written because Poe thought his homes were cursed and everyone was dying.The Balloon Hoax was probably written because he worked as a newspaper editor andthe stories were probably very boring and the Balloon Hoax did get posted in a newspaper and would of been exciting if it existed. The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether was probably written because he felt like he was surrounded by insane people when he couldn't find a job or was consatnly moving to different places
