The absence of punctuation, also known as enjambment, causes the reader to continuously read the poem without stopping.

Yes, the author of “The Outsider” is credible for his presentation of events. The author is convincing because the story is told in first person point of view because it uses the pronouns “I” and “me”, which means that as the reader we don’t know what’s going to happen until the narrator does it.
