The Raven crafts the idea of suspense by using a range of different types of literary features. The use of hyperboles creates more suspense because the more exaggeration used grips the reader in more. Describing the Raven as “Ghastly, Grim and ancient” (8) makes the idea that the author is trying to get through, more coherent as Poe is offering more description. The way Poe repeats his “Sorrow for the lost Lenore” (2) helps embed the idea that he misses Lenore but it also makes the reader wonder where she went, why she left and why she is so important, which creates suspense. The way Poe uses repetition and pathos when he is trying to get an idea through is very prominent.
Initially, I was confused as to how Dante structured hell but the more I thought about it, the more I grasped why Betrayal was the worst sin. Betrayal breaks the trust of another and therefore makes loving someone improbable. However, as much as I enjoyed reading Inferno, I found all three sections very important. The purification steps before entering heaven
Yet, they are more intertwined than most realize; they both stem from the branches that make up a play’s plot and both serve to satisfy an audience 's emotional appetite. Because of these similarities, it can be hard to distinguish why some plays are more comic or tragic, and while there is no clear-cut formula to differentiate these genres, Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night, and Sophocles’ tragedy, Oedipus Rex, are the baseline needed to understand each genre’s unique distinctions. Let us assume that a tragic play is one that evokes piety and fear by means of the plot, as described by Aristotle over 2000 years ago. Additionally, let us assume that Oedipus Rex is the real-world application of Aristotle 's definition of a tragedy. Finally, let’s assume that Twelfth Night is the exact application of the definition of comedy, regardless of what that definition may be.
Literature is a wonderful thing; it explores the relationships between humans and their nature, historical events, and can be used to express one’s creativity. It can also be used to give moral guidance; this was Arthur Miller’s reasoning behind writing The Crucible. In this dramatic retelling of the Salem trials, Miller ensnares his reader with stories of adultery, betrayal, and material greed. His intention, however, is not to entertain with operatic drama. This play is a cautionary tale about finger pointing and its potentially fatal consequences.
In conclusion, both works have different purposes such as informing like "desperation Forced a horrific Decision" which has more details, has a more formal tone, and the settings are more detailed. In "Leap" the purpose of the author is to entertain, that's why they author didn't include that many details of the event, but rather focus on a specific matter and he uses the different elements to show a different perspective of the same situation, that's why the paper has a romantic side but at the same time the audience can feel the
The authors of the two texts The Hitchhiker and Closed for the Season effectively created suspense through the use of dramatic elements. Closed for the Season and The Hitchhiker created suspense by using imagery. Setting created suspense in the two texts. Finally, the two text used descriptions of the characters fear and anxiety to create suspense. Therefore, the authors of Closed for the Season and The Hitchhiker created suspense because they made the reader think about what’s gonna happen next.
Friar Laurence also has a much more significant part to play in the outcome of the tragedy. As the plot of the play becomes more and more complicated, Friar Laurence develops plans that are wilder and more complex. While it is clear that the friar has the best interest of the children at heart, he has the inability to realize when his interference becomes dangerous for the young couple involved. If Friar Laurence had taken more time to think through his plans and managed to put a stop to said plans once the situation became too complex, he could have saved the lives of Romeo and Juliet. However, it is clear that Friar Laurence truly did what he thought was going to make the children
The mood of the story was spine-chilling and mystifying. The name of the island, “Ship-Trap” Island, itself gives off a daunting vibe to the reader. The author wanted his audience to feel as if they were there themselves which is why he added so many details. The details narrow the imagery in the audience’s heads to help them better grasp the plot in the story. If the author hadn’t been so descriptive in the story, we wouldn’t have been able to envision what the island was
“The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last” (Oscar Wilde). Though this quote is ironic, the reasoning behind it is accurate, especially in literature. Though suspense can be quite off putting and frustrating for a reader, it also makes the story much more intriguing. Authors use suspense to pull a reader into their story, keeping them on the edge of their seats and always wondering what will happen next.
Suspense is usually what creates a story. It allows the reader’s mind to wander. It drags them in wanting to read more. In the short story, “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, suspense is what makes the story so intriguing. Although, it allows one to wonder what actually could have happened and all of the subtle horrors that are hidden within the story.
The suspense in the story is very important because it adds to how the story is being told, and how the reader portrays the story when reading. The suspense is developed while Rainsford is talking with General Zaroff about what the most dangerous game is, the readers are left wondering what could this game be and why couldn’t Rainsford think of it. It is sustained after we find out what the most dangerous game is, Rainsford then request to leave but the only off the island is to be General Zaroff’s game and to beat General Zaroff. The roles that coincidence comes into play is after the discussion between Whiney and Rainsford, after Whiney turns in for the night, Rainsford, after hearing gunshot in the direction of the island he then leans
Writers want readers to see the point they 're faking to make. For example, I don’t know about you, but when I read fiction with historical events involved, I’m engaged, but I feel unsettled. As if, I’m in the wrong to be reading these words from this voice who is attempting to create an already made past in order to give readers something. _This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen_ by Tadeusz Borowski has been one of those types of stories for me. A heart-wrenching story.
