Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published. Asma did an excellent job convincing his audience using emotion, logic, and ethics. Besides his use of logic, there is a large amount of pathos in his writing, which makes the reader perceive that he is writing to a skeptical audience. For example, describing how in modern films, such as Frankenstein, “we dramatize the rage of the monstrous creature…then scold ourselves… [for being an] intolerant society”(61).
In any novel, mystery and suspense is a popular characteristic, but contributes very well to what secures a gothic theme to a novel. Here, mystery and suspense are built throughout the novel based on the predicament of the characters. Initially, mystery is built very early on in the story, where the reader is interested to know who the
“People need to learn that their actions do affect other people. So be careful what you say and do, it’s not always just about you!” In the book, Tangerine, by Edward Bloor, Erik made many choices including being the cause of Paul’s blindness, Mrs. Fisher told his new school about Paul’s IEP, and Paul asked about his blindness to his parents. The main choice that affected Paul was made by Erik.
This is why it is important to understand what is a monster and what are its uses in literature. In “Monster Theory (Seven Theses)”, Jeffrey Jerome Cohen, the author, gives us some of the basic aspects of monsters as theses. Monsters are born as an embodiment of a certain cultural moment and “the monster 's body quite literally incorporates fear, desire, anxiety, fantasy[...] giving them life and an
Horror stories by W.W. Jacobs and Edgar Allan Poe write horror stories that will keep you on the edge of your seat due to their amazing use of suspense, thrill, and imagination. The authors W.W. Jacobs and Edgar Allan Poe have become renown for their horror stories. This is due to their creativity and imagination and in the way they captivate you with their writing. In both horror stories "The-Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe and "The Monkey 's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs, they both use the cause and effect relationship to create suspense and interest in the reader, without this essential aspect of these two stories, the reader would quickly lose interest in these two writers literature.
The occult belongs to Gothic literature. It began with a novel from Horace Walpole, The Castle of Otranto. The Gothic literature is a mixture between horror, full of terror story and romance. The Gothic novel tries to awake fear and terror upon the reader through supernatural and inexplicable events. The prevalent atmosphere is a doom and gloomy one, in order for incomprehensible situations to take place.
I concur with King that we play host to anticivilization emotions and this explains why people can crave horror movies. There is some level of darkness in us, but, at most times, this dark side is eclipsed by the increased emphasis on civilization. King (2013) cites the case of emotions related to friendship, loyalty, love, and kindness to show how the society adore civilization and strive at maintaining the status quo. However, this does not entirely suppress the dark side in us. “Anticivilization emotions don’t go away and they demand periodic exercise”(King, 2013).
The pig hunting foreshadows the link between the pig symbol and the extermination of those considered alien or outsiders. ““You’re always scared. Yah-Fatty!” “I got the conch,” said Piggy bleakly. He turned to Ralph.
I think the most valuable book for me was The Pigman by Paul Zindel In ELA class. Even though it was hard for me to understand, but I still enjoyed it. This book helped me to understand how to use foreshadowing. Foreshadowing can make the story more suspenseful.
“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality”-Edgar Allan Poe. All great horror stories represent that quote. There is one story that does not. “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs is not a horror story because there is not a monster, it is not believable, and it does not have a creepy setting. Classic horror stories usually have some sort of a monster in it, whether the monster is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde or Frankenstein.
The way Roald Dahl presents scary/creepy moments in these stories is the way he uses the words to actually present the scary moments, the order in which he lays out the events, and the way he leaves you at the end. In the Landlady the order of the events is one reason why it is so creepy. Some text evidence to show that is “all at once his eye was caught… BED AND BREAKFAST”. That piece of evidence shows how the order helps it to be more scary because if that wouldn’t have caught his eye the story wouldn’t be that scary.
