Read the excerpt from "The Fall of the House of Usher." From that chamber, and from that mansion, I fled aghast. The storm was still abroad in all its wrath as I found myself crossing the old causeway. Suddenly there shot along the path a wild light, and I turned to see whence a gleam so unusual could have issued. Which best describes the impact of Poe’s tone in the excerpt?

This best describes the impact of Poe's tone in the excerpt: From that chamber, and from that mansion, I fled aghast.  It gives the reader a sense that the character is in a state of panic and that the character left the situation hastily. "Aghast" is a word which means filled with horror or shock, which gives the reader the sense that the character is in that current mood.
