Additional evidence of Montresor’s madness Is given when the men refer to his house motto and coat of arms. Montresor’s house motto, “Nemo me impune lacessit”, means to punish with impunity, and it is immediately evident that he takes this motto literally. The fact that he plans to punish Fortunato without being caught reveals that he doesn’t plan to let Fortunato leave the vaults. Likewise, Montresor’s coat of arms seems quite appropriate relative to what is happening in the story: “A huge human foot d’or in a field azure; the foot crushes a serpent rampant whose fangs are imbedded in the heel” is analogous to Montresor, the foot, crushing Fortunato, the serpent (Poe 238). Taking his motto, a few voiceless words, as law is quite an insane idea, and characterizes Montresor as a madman.

“Dr. Mortimer turned the manuscript to the light and read in a high, crackling voice the following curious, old-world narrative:” (page 7). That built up suspense for the reader and made them want to understand what is on that old transcript, the movie took it away and swiftly told only a shortened explanation. The burnt letter presented to Holmes by Barrymore gave a lot of suspense to the reader, introducing a huge possible lead to the detectives. It was an important moment that was never even introduced in the book, it made the reader wonder a lot about who this person was and what she had to do with the
Tension, the first device, is a strained relationship between individuals, groups, nations, etc. Suspense, the second device, is a state or condition of uncertainty that is accompanied by a feeling of anxiety or anticipation. Jon Krakauer creates a sense of tension and suspense throughout Into Thin Air by using other devices such as foreshadowing and pacing and by employing organizational patterns

T’was late, but I see suddenly Mine fine paper with a number so abhorred, Even the milkiest of white-out wilt not suffice.

The guilt of procrastinating enclosed me as I started my paper the night before thinking the consequences would be lenient. However, my thoughts are proved wrong, causing my hallucination as my worry and guilt grips me seeing the bad grade on my paper.

Shirley carefully establishes the setting for her reader as the
The exposition is meant to give the reader an idea of the fatal pestilence that conquered the country. The Red Death is represented by pain, blood, swiftness, and horror, and builds up a dark mood. Yet, Prince Prospero “was happy and dauntless and sagacious” and lives in a magnificent castle, isolated and far away from the Red Death, at least he believes so. His ignorance towards the welfare of his population arouses hatred within the readers. In the same time, the suspense and curiosity grow, and the readers are willing to find out what will happen to Prince
One way the author foreshadows, and sets the mood at the same time is when he wrote: “Of all the beastly, slushy, out-of-the-way places to live in, this is the worst.” This shows that the characters are dissatisfied with their home, which may hint to future actions to create a better environment. This also sets the mood to be gloomy. Another foreshadowing quote is when Jacobs
Leading up to the murder of King Duncan Macbeth seems Indecisive, he can’t seem to make up his mind about the assassination and seems to be battling his thoughts between his ambitions and desires to be king and his loyalty and reputation. Spoken by Macbeth in his soliloquy in Act 1 scene 7 “If it were done when ‘tis done, then ‘twere well/ It were done quickly” shows his sense of urgency, he wants to get the murder done ‘quickly’, he’s afraid of the consequences of the murder, after all it is a crime he would have to commit and it would only be natural for him to feel nervous which revealing his paranoia. Furthermore the use of monosyllabic words such as ‘it’, ‘were’ and ‘done’ give the his a fast paced structure which mimics the content of

As I laid in bed, searching across one of my favorite websites, creepypasta, for a decent scary story to read; I stopped short. "The Other You" was the title of the extremely short story that I now wish I had never opened. The story instructed that if you stand in front of a mirror, grab a random piece of hair while looking at yourself, then holding a ruler or other object capable of accurate measurement, then marked the ruler; then afterward doing it again only without looking in the mirror, that the lengths would be different. It said that doing this created confusion to your doppelgänger, whom you supposedly see in the mirror, living in an alternate universe. The only issue is that after you do this, you can never turn your back to that mirror again.
