This paper explains how Edgar Allan Poe and James Joyce use setting, characters, plot, and symbols in "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "Araby" to establish the theme of frustrated escape.
From the Paper:"The setting and action of "The Tell-Tale Heart" emphasize frustrated escape by providing a context for the theme. Poe sets the story in a dark Gothic apartment where the action takes place after midnight. Darkness is a metaphor for evil and death; by placing the action at midnight, Poe provides an excellent psychological scenario for murder and madness. "
