First person narrative is often used because it allows the reader to better understand the context of the text and the story becomes more intimate for the reader. On the other hand, the short story, "The Lady with the Dog" integrates the use of third person limited narrative. Third person limited narrative is used when authors only want the reader to know the thoughts and feelings of a specific character.

This form of narrative presents minimal thoughts of one character while the rest of the characters are presented independently.
Poe believes that stories that dealt with gothic literature needed to have allegories in them to have a second level of meaning in addition to it’s literal meaning.

In “The Tale and Its Effect”, Poe stated that he used and supported unity of effect to go about discussing the themes he embedded within his stories in order to make the reader to feel a certain way. He believes that they need to be short and sweet so that the author can get all the details to the reader. Poe exclaims that short stories are superior to novels because one is able to sit down and finish it in one-sitting rather than breaking the experience, with the possibility of forgetting important elements.

Discuss the tone of the piece and explain how it is established. When literature is read it is easy to believe that the way it makes you feel is open to interpretation but it really is not. Tone is very important and used to make the reader understand the piece of literature in the way the writer intended. Tone is achieved by the pool of devices writers use to manipulate the reader 's thoughts, and in the case of the poem The Ballad Of The Landlord, by Langston Hughes it makes no exception. The use of repetition, syntax and imagery are used to establish the purposeful tone of frustration and anger.
Often times, readers are solely focused on the characters that make up a story. However, little time is spent trying to understand what motivates the characters of a story or rather what objects they use to fulfil their motives. In The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, usually inanimate objects serve as the foundational means of understanding the fate of the main characters. The central objects that both stories revolve around are brought to life and deemed animate due to their ability to possess some form of power. When these objects are used for their “powers”, the lives of the characters become impacted, thus proving that objects should not be underestimated because they can change the course of human lives.

Ana Cláudia Peters Salgado in her article “Borders and Boundaries in Rita Dove’s Poetry” states: With this historical description the poet allows the reader to enter the world she is depicting, in a softer way though.

Scott Fitzgerald is written in first person perspective with Nick Carraway as the narrator because it enables the reader to gain a firm understanding of Nick Carraway’s character as well the events of the narrative. Nick Carraway’s statements alluding to his integrity as a narrator as well as his feelings for Jay Gatsby reveal a lot about his character despite him trying to remain independent of the story and withholding judgement. It’s the minor details that reveals what judgements he has which enables the reader to derive his character. In comparison, Schoemperlen’s uses of second person narration has a much different effect where the narrator’s character is revealed by distancing herself from the narrative and projecting it upon the narratee. Both styles are effective due to the type of narrative they’re telling and what they’re trying to convey to the reader.
