The author of this paper shows how the setting and atmosphere of the two works "The Fall of the House of Usher" (Edgar Allen Poe) and "The Tempest" (Shakespeare), are a reflection of the characters. Each work is analyzed individually.

From the Paper:

"Again, the setting is defining the characters and their moods. “Extensive decay” could just as well describe Roderick and Madeline after she returns from the tomb. It could also describe the family itself, who, through intermarriage and interbreeding, weakened its bloodlines until only the sickly Roderick and Madeline are left to carry on the name."
