Edgar Allan Poe has a unique aesthetic style, he uses morbid themes like nightmares, death, crime, and evil. He adopts a Gothic technique in a composition. In “The Fall of the House of Usher” Allan Poe used psychological shocks to tell the story about a house that has absorbed an evil and diseased atmosphere.
Kate Chopin is a writer that is known for her stories of sensitive women. She has an emancipating style of writing - some call it feminism -. She uses a lot of symbolism, strong characters, and morals. “A Pair of Silk Stockings” story is another example of the use of symbolism by the author, the silk stockings represent luxury.
Comparing both passages you can notice that Allan Poe describes all the details from nature and from the House of Usher to create this gothic mysterious atmosphere. On the other way around, on the passage from “A Pair of Silk Stockings,” you can notice clearly the symbolism of everything in the story like “the music ceased the crowd filed out, like a dream”.
Poe presents a more poetic writing and full of adjectives, in addition to the presentation of narration in first person. Chopin, on the other hand, presents a more direct and objective writing, with full exposure of facts and narration in a third person.
While reading the passage written by Poe, we can see that the author was adept at using first-person narration, where the narrator is the main character of the story. In addition, Poe's writing is quite poetic, subjunctive, full of meanings and metaphors, with a strong appeal to sentimentality and full of adjectives.
The reading of the excerpt written by Chopin, presents characteristics totally different from those found in the Poe excerpt. Chopin is a fan of fast, incisive and objective writing, for this reason, we fail to notice the recurrent use of adjectives and metaphors, since the author prefers to establish a clearer and less verbose writing.
