Perry has went his entire life being judged, unaccepted and hurt multiple times. He had resentment of society and jealousy of those, like the Clutters, being everything that he could not be. Perry did not have anything against the Clutter’s, “I didn’t want to harm the man. I thought he was a very nice gentleman.
Surprise is an emotion that rarely stands alone. Using situational irony, authors use surprising twists to manipulate the reader’s emotions beyond creating shock. For example, “The Ransom of Red Chief” by O. Henry utilizes situational irony to instill humor in those who read the short story. Guy de Maupassant also uses situational irony in “The Necklace,” but the feeling he creates is one of justice. Both short stories, when analyzed, show that the effects of situational irony on a reader’s emotions surpass creating surprise.
In the stories The Tell-Tale Heart and The Black Cat, both narrators realize their acts were wrong, but they did them anyway by rationalizing that they were driven by circumstance.The Tell-Tale Heart is about a mad man who truly believes he is not crazy by telling us the whole story.

Situational irony can be unanticipated. How the author describes the characters throughout the story with the emotions they feel and their ideas can heavily impact the situational irony. Situational irony can often have a huge twist in the story, whether or not it is about the main character or just the idea or setting of it. O. Henry from “The Ransom’s Red Chief,” uses situational irony to create an amusing effect on the reader. Guy de Maupassant from “The Necklace,” uses situational irony to create an enormous amount of sympathy for the characters of the story.
Irony takes place in all of Poe’s stories, and it is very easy to notice what the most ironic parts are in all of the texts too. However, “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Masque of the Red Death”, have the most ironic sequences in them. In “The Tell-Tale Heart”, the narrator is so confident that he had thought of everything, that he had the perfect plan, but he hadn’t planned for the guilt that would later haunt him after he killed the old man. He ended up confessing his crime to the police and even tearing up the floorboards where he had stashed the old man’s remains. For example, “I admit the deed!
Obsession, internal conflict, and underlying guilt are all aspects of being human but when it’s associated with paranoia and insanity it may be just the recipe for the perfect crime as perceived by Edger Allan Poe in “The Tell-Tale Heart”. Poe uses this as one of his shortest stories to discuss and provide an insight into the mind of the mentally ill, paranoia and the stages of mental detrition.

The other main character in the story is an old man whom the narrator apparently works for and resides in his house. The story opens off with the narrator trying to assure his sanity then proceeding to tell the tale of his crime, this shows a man deranged and hunted with a guilty conscience of his murderous act.
Many notable literature, including those of Dostoyevsky and Edgar Allan Poe, link confessions of crime to guilt. In Crime and Punishment, after committing the murders of the Ivanovna sisters, Raskolnikov wandered to the Neva and looked to his mental state. The narrator in Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment reads out Raskolnikov’s thoughts and says, “…he somehow imagined it was still possible to think about what he had thought about before, or to interest himself in the same subjects and sights as before, not so long ago... it weighted on his chest till it hurt” (Dostoyevsky 109-110). The narrator explained in the passage that Raskolnikov had formerly felt wonder and excitement from seeing the view of St. Petersburg from the Neva. After his double of Aliona and Lizabeta Ivanovna, he was no longer able to feel the same inspiration he felt before.
But in that story carnival brings the death of Fortunado and this is the second irony here. In the other story “The Tell Tale Heart” the irony is more witty. The protagonist is a madman yet he always claims the opposite. The biggest irony in this story is the moment that the narrator confesses the crime to the police because of the feeling the heartbeat of the deadman and thinking that he is not dead though the police did not even doubt
