The transformation of the melodrama … metaphor

May 18, 2008 § 1 Comment

In opposition to what I wrote here, this:

Within the hour Rose Trine stood before her father
in that sombre room whose sinister colour-scheme
of crimson and black was the true livery of the
passion for vengeance that alone kept warm the
embers of his deathlike life.

the metaphorical use of colors that is pretty heavy-handed here, film melodramas (colors in Written on the Wind for instance) will do effortlessly.

(still from Trey o’ Hearts, p. 39)
