I saw the connection of each section near the end, since in the beginning of the passage, I didn’t see any. …

    Even though Poe’s death remains a mystery today it is fact that “The Fall of the House of Usher” has been, throughout time, a reader’s favorite story, both casual and school forced. I personally think it has been such a famous and favorite book of readers because the short story is very dark, cruel, creepy and mysterious. Since it is so dark and mysterious it constantly keeps the attention of the readers such as college students like myself. If the story doesn’t keep my attention then I really…
