In the piece, the mood of the writing is quite dark, no one likes talking about death and not to this extent to going into it with depth. The talk of decaying bodies and graveyards is not a subject that is very happy, but with the tone that he gives it in it does not sound like he is talking about a dark subject. He talks about it with a real interest in death, Showing that he is not scared. he isn’t scared of the dark and isn’t scared of dead people and their bodies. Makes talking about a dark subject into talking about something they are very interested in and want to learn more about. Not people want to learn about death but just want to forget about it while he knows it is going to happen because death is inevitable and wants to put his time into learning about it. “I must also observe the natural decay and corruption of the human body.” This shows how he can be interested in such a dark subject.
