For the film industry, genre is a category that classifying similar films together roughly based on their similar story content and generic formulas: fixed pattern of the way the story is described. There are many kinds of film genre, such as action, romance, comedy, musical, horror, science fiction and so on. Different film genre has different particular format of context, way of narration, purpose and audience. Under the category above, there are more sub-genres grouping by years and period, by country and languages (national cinema), by series (the Harry Potter series), by style, by narrative structure (narrate from the beginning or the end, narration interspersed with flashbacks), by purpose (tragedy and comedy are designed to let audience feel different emotions), by audience (animation is usually for

As one of the most controversial American literary figures, Edgar Allan Poe has always attracted considerable attention from both critics and readers alike. Due to his allegedly eccentric personality and the dubious circumstances surrounding his death, the public perception of the writer has often been somewhat mythologized. When it comes to his works, Poe has been both critically acclaimed and disparaged, both acknowledged and disputed, but rarely ignored. As he left behind a significantly influential literary legacy, his place among the most important writers in American literature is today undeniable. Being both a journalist and a fiction writer, Poe produced numerous texts ranging from tales and poems to critical essays, reviews and newspaper
The word genre comes from the French word for 'class ', (Chandler, 1997). Film genre refers to a specific style or subject matter. A movie may have several different components that may make up a specific genre. Genres makes it easier for the audience, as the categorization of genres lets the audience pick what sort of movie they would like to watch. Film genres give the audience information into the type movie it may be, this in turn helps them to decide whether the movie is suitable for them or not.
A narrator: defined as a person who guides or tells the story of events through one’s own experience. As far as we are told, the narrator tells the story precisely and can make the words of the page come to life. Yet, is it possible for the narrator to tell the story incorrectly through their own perspective? This well-written horror shows us anything is possible in the art of literature. From reading “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, readers learn that the narrator is unreliable and therefore cannot be trusted to tell the story completely accurately.
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 story 's action is depicted through the eyes of the unnamed delusional narrator. 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.
Literary Genres, the definition is in the name. A type of writing that runs on nothing but one’s imaginations and in some cases worst fears. It is created to give the readers a type of escape from the real world, and keeps them up through through the night flipping pages until they are finally finished the novel. Within literary genres comes a couple fan favourites, the Horror Genre, and the Romance Genre. The two tend to alternate reality in a way that creates a fantasy, or nightmare for us living in the novels of each genre.
He took into consideration many elements to ensure his works reached a point where the reader would feel awestruck and could feel the many feelings pictured in the writings. Poe’s characters and stories were represented often by the rejection of the rational, a characteristic of the Romantic era, exchanging it with intuition and emotions. In "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", considered the first detective story, Poe introduces us to Auguste Dupin. Dupin, throughout the story, tries to constantly think like the criminal, following his intuition in order to resolve the crime. The display of emotions in his stories is what draws the attention of the reader.
One commonly seen theme in his detective stories is medical knowledge, which is demonstrated by both Holmes and Watson. Doyle, although a prolific writer, was also a doctor, which contributed to the fact that many of his mysteries are based around poisons, drugs and medicines (Reed, par. 1-3). Another commonly displayed characteristic is that Doyle tends to make the puzzle element the focus in his plot. He sets aside characterization and setting and prioritizes the detective methods.
I did not previously think genre could refer to anything other than genres of books (i.e. horror, fantasy, nonfiction, fiction, and romance). Now, I know that genre can refer to a vast variety of subjects including modes, writing style, and more. Learning these new things about reading

The Sign of Four to Poe’s “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, and analyzing whether Doyle plagiarized Poe’s plot. Bertman’s essay may be considerably short in length, but it does make a fair analysis on whether or not Doyle plagiarized Poe. His essay’s credibility
Poe was emphatically influenced by Gothic writing, and “The Cask of Amontillado” (1954) with its mind-set of crawling horror and imminent death in an Italian palazzo, most unquestionably demonstrates those impacts. This and numerous other Poe stories are rich in Gothic themes such as madness, cruelty, perversion, and obsession, and feature a various rationally unequal storytellers; Montresor positively qualifies on this number. Poe, in turn, influenced later Gothic writing, especially Southern Gothic. This strand highlights Poe-like dim diversion and gives careful consideration to mind boggling, agitated, even silly characters and the general public in which they live than to the powerful themes often supported in British Gothic fiction (Poe, Edgar Allan, 2001). "The Cask of Amontillado" refers to a nonexistent container of wine the speaker uses to attract a contender wine expert into a crypt so the narrator can kill him.
As character after character perishes, suspense increases because the reader’s prior suspicions are progressively cut short. The final rule that Christie breaks is that which the detective cannot be the criminal. Each character plays a role of detective in this novel for each character is seemingly equally as confused about the situation as the next. The thoughts of all ten strangers are spelled out on the pages cross-accusing every single character - even those of Justice Wargrave. He himself is the one to state, “it is perfectly clear.
H. Auden, in an essay The Guilty Vicarage, describes how the detective novels depict not just one guilty criminal, but, by putting the of suspicion on each and every member of the closed society, marks each and every member as such. The detective, by identifying the criminal and purging them from the society absolves the guilt of the entire society. According to Auden, the detective absolves not just the suspects of their guilt, but provides the same absolution/salvation to the readers of detective fiction also. Auden thus, points out some of the more unwitting functions of detective fiction, that is, to work as a literary embodiment of a mechanism which assumes everybody to be guilty and thereby the need of subjecting all to confession. In The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, once the confessions from all major characters is extracted, the most significant of all confessions still remains -- that of the murderer.
