not only of the setting, like the gothic mansion and the nice town, but of Edward himself and all the towns people.
of the hedges as his relationship with the people. he used it as a way to gain their love, and at the end he loses his **** and tears them down, symbolising his hatred of the people and the deterioration of their relationship.
this one is kind of a stretch but the irony of such an abnormal creature being called such a normal name like Edward.
again this one is a bit dodgy, but the town is so perfect, its an exaggeration. burton uses this to satirise that kind of society.
- religious allusion:
"It s not heaven he s form, its straight from the stinking flames of hell, the power of Satan is in him", a typical gothic convention also, alluding to religion and the supernatural.
also the use of colour and music to create atmosphere.
