Suspense is an integral part of storytelling. Without suspense, certain stories would not create their intended effect. Edgar Allen Poe wrote many books and poems, which were all under a gothic theme. His writings were very dark and mysterious, and they all contained suspense. Poe’s novel “The Tell-Tale Heart” and his poem “The Raven” contain suspense, which is created through point-of-view, irony, and diction.
Throughout history, we have came across many authors with different writing styles, word choice,or unique ways of interpretations. Edgar Allen Poe is one author who stands out to me the most. He has a unique and dark way of writing his stories and it appeals to the readers emotion and drama. He has a recurring theme of death and lost love, and in “The Tell-Tale Heart” Poe writes about murder, insanity, obsession and guilt. His use of symbolism and point of view is another reason what makes Poe one of the greatest.
Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature. Ultimately, the central purpose of an author’s novel is to engross the reader, by writing in a genre and movement that is appropriate the book. Appropriately, Kurt Dinan engages the reader with both a Mystery genre and Postmodernist elements in his novel, Don’t Get Caught. Postmodernists believe that traditional authority is false and corrupt, and the central theme of Don’t Get Caught is that the powerful students play pranks and humiliate the less influential students. There exists a social elite club known as the Chaos Club that plays pranks on the school and faculty, and nobody can figure out the leader of the club is or who the members’ are.
Edgar Allan Poe’s stories all have some type of mysterious setting that makes the reader read in between the lines and decipher the meaning. His stories also incorporate a great deal of violence and sinister acts, which adds a grimness to each story he tells. “The Black Cat” is a true work of literature that incorporates a hidden meaning in the story with the use of sinister violence. In this particular story, the narrator’s use of the first-person point of view, symbolism through the characters, and the eerie setting creates a fascinating tale. Edgar Allan Poe’s story is told from the first-person point of view.
He is burdened by sadness and pain, thus leading to the word “weary” in the title. Many also assume that Hughes may have derived the title of the poem from “Weary Blues”, a song released in 1915 by African-American songwriter, pianist, and ragtime composer Artie Matthews (Shmoop). “The Weary Blues” is one of Hughes’ most recognized poems to date, and has drawn rapturous praise from innumerable critics and readers throughout the world. My thesis is that “The Weary Blues” is a noteworthy poem due to the establishment of a relaxed, yet depressing mood through the accurate portrayal of a certain blues
Poe’s Use of Symbolism and Allusion Edgar Allan Poe is often regarded as the “Father of Gothic Literature,” and rightfully so. He composed a myriad of works that are now viewed as staples in the world of literature. With writings such as “The Raven,” “The Bells,” “The Black Cat,” and, “The Tell-Tale Heart,” he has changed the way readers indulge themselves in literature. Within each of his works, Poe provides the reader with a glance into his personal life, whether it be his preference of day over night, or some of his deeper struggles within himself, including substance abuse and his Survivor’s guilt over the death of many people who were dear to him. This is exemplified in his works, “The Raven,” and “The Black Cat,” where he uses symbolism
Jackson, founding member of the Jackson Five has written many jaw dropping songs, including my personal favorite “Thriller”. In Michael Jackson's “Thriller”, he serenades his audience about how there is always something lurking in the gloomy shadows even if you don't always notice. Michael's song uses many different ways to convey its central theme, including personification and hyperbole. The lyricist of “Thriller” reveals the theme through several literary devices. To begin with, Michael sings “the foulest stench is in the air the funk of forty thousand years”.

In this fashion, the reader is left with questions about what truly is real in both life and in this novel even when it appears only on the verge of being realistic.
