I can give you a general statement. The unnamed protagonist (the Narrator) reaches the remote mansion of his boyhood friend, Roderick Usher. He is filled with a sense of dread by the sight of the house itself. The mood around the house and landscape is filled with rot and decay. There is a sense of darkness and foreboding as the man approaches.
