In a well-developed paragraph analyze Poe’s theme in “The Premature Burial.” Your paragraph should state the theme in one sentence. What specific story elements (plot, setting, characters, or conflict) are essential in developing the theme? Be sure you use specifics from the text that you noted in your reading journal in writing your response.

    Aha! I remember this! Well you know how to start the paragraph. Write a sentence about the theme of being buried alive! It's horrific, isn't it?

    So then the first sentence of your well-developed paragraph should be "The Premature Burial is a horror-themed short story about a man being buried alive."

    Describe what parts of the story make it horrific. Perhaps talk a little bit more about connecting the reader to the situation. Picture yourself down in the ground in suffocation, gasping for air! Or something like that.

    Well that's okay. Just take it one sentence at a time. We already got the first one down. It's time to make another one!

    Woah woah woah! Wait just a second! We're not exercising just yet! You just need to make a sentence about how the short story is detailed with horror. We're not doing jumping jacks.

    I just did. Now it's your job to put that concept onto paper, or virtual paper. Whatever you're putting this down on.
