The Pit and The Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe

-A foggy surreal vision of the court and being judged.The place is dark. every step he sees vague shapes and mirrages. He sees nothing on the ground. Is he walking on air? He sees danger in the darkness but doesn't know what it might be.

Ok this is the character.

So, what would the event and setting be. Below is the stage that you wrote.

He awakens in darkness, wondering how much of what he remembers was a dream and how much was reality.

Fearful, the narrator again faints, and after he awakes for the second time, he begins to explore the dungeon while wondering what hs fate will be.

This is when he awakes in the dungeon. He is trying to explore it but the place is really dark.


I am sorry, but I don't understand. My question is what is the event and what is the setting?

On your answer above is this the event or the setting?

The setting is the dungeon. Thats where this takes place. The event is this guy waking up in the dungeon after his trial.

Thank you so very much.
