Short texts: Gothic literature: Madness and Isolation

There are many things that authors choose to write about but inevitably they will all show us some aspect of what it is to be human. In the stories below will explore isolated characters who are victims of their own psychosis. "The Tell-Tale Heart" provides insight into the overwhelming power of guilt. "The Fall of the House of Usher" explores the boundaries between fantasy and reality, the power of our environment on the human mind. "A Rose for Emily" shows how deeply isolation and loneliness can effect someone. "A Door in the Wall", approaches the power of imagination from a different perspective- what happens if we deny it?
