To fail, in faith, we must first succeed in doubt and fear. For Wormwood and Screwtape to succeed in their victim falling from faith they must first feed him full of fear and doubt. Throughout the Screwtape Letters, both demons try to bring their subject to worship their father by practicing tactics that lead and misdirect their human to fall from his faith in Christianity. Fear, doubt, and insecurity are the first and foremost tools of misdirection that Screwtape tries to employ Wormwood to exploit. “The immediate fear and suffering of the humans is a legitimate and pleasing refreshment for our myriads of toiling workers”.

Lewis envisions what hell looks like to him by food and eating motifs. Reading through the book myself, I can envision what a horrid place hell is like, what C.S. Lewis tells in the Screwtape Letters. Now, in order for you to understand, the Screwtape letters is based on demons who work for Satan to temp humans to join the dark side of hell and leave the enemy (God). In most of the part, I will be discussing the very subject of Screwtape’s toast in the Tempter’s training College and the dominant motifs of food and eating in the letters from Screwtape.

Poe uses foreshadowing to reveal the upcoming intentions of Montresor. An example of this is when Poe writes, “I promised myself that I would make him pay for this, that I would have revenge.” Just by using the word revenge the audience can already tell that Montresor is going to do something to Fortunato in order to bring justice for himself. Another example of foreshadowing is when Poe writes, “We walked on for sometime. We were now under the river’s bed, and water fell in drops upon us from above. Deeper into the ground we went, past still more bones.” From the description the author uses the audience can create an image of a catacomb.
