Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: A, University of Graz, language: English, abstract: There is a certain clever rhetoric from the buried protagonist in the introduction ThePremature Burial , Edgar Allan Poe's tale: The boundaries which divide Life from Death,are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and the other begins?(Poe 322), as he finds himself buried in what he believes to be a coffin, as the story starts tointrigue us with one of the most terrifying and arguably uncanny experiences - live burial.The narrator is obsessed, a walking dead man , who eventually saves himself fromthe terrifying experience and exaggerated fear, but not from the uncanny feeling. It is as muchdreadful as when we as readers perceive the buried-alive Lady Madeline Usher breaking thevault steel door of her coffin, uttering eerie sounds and appearing bloody at her brotherRoderick's door in Poe's even more gruesome tale, The Fall of the House of Usher . Theprotagonists too are quite different, as are the representations of the motive of live burial inboth stories - one hand we deal with, as this essay will try and prove, an evident incestuousrelationship and perhaps Roderick's certain repressed wishes, and on the other hand theexaggerated, almost satiric general fear of a seemingly cataleptic state and death.
