Comparison: "The Jade Peony", "Horses of the Night", Masque of the Red Death"

I noticed that i enjoyed most of the storys not only for the obvious reasons such as good characters
, mood, and imagery but also because of writing
style and fluency. I noticed some storys I enjoyed reading even thought nothing in it really interested me too much, while other storys that were about topics I usually
enjoy reading about I had to put down because I would end up going over every sentence two or three times each. So on that note I believe the most

whole thing. The main problem with this story was the inconsistance of the sentences, some sentences were too long while others were very short. The only way to truly fix this story would be to re-write it.

The second story I chose to write about is called "Horses of the Night" by Margaret Laurence. I did enjoy reading this short story dipite the fact it seem to jump around a lot
; it would talk about somthing fairly in-depth then
just suddenly jump to a different subject or time-era of the story. The author seem to show very good writing ability however so I think perhaps she did this on purpose either just for somthing different or maybe to give you a break from what she was currently writing about.

And finally the third and personal favourite story i chose to include in this paper is called "The Masqe of the...
