In Chapter One, Lucy (a pure, generous soul) thought to herself as she was walking into Narnia after going through the fur coats that she found and making sure to leave the door to the wardrobe open so that is does not lock behind her and she can still get out “Crunch, crunch over the snow and through the woods towards the other light” (Lewis 4). White powdered snow is covering the ground, also it is very cold in temperature. The crunching of the snow is a descriptive way of saying it sounds like leaves crunching but in frozen white crumbly form. Chapter One is the first time you see a description about the snow. Every other chapter after that just builds upon that.
Fitzgerald uses seasons to help further with the mood of the story. “In the winter, he frequently skis over the snow-covered fairways, a landscape that fills him with melancholy” (“Winter Dreams”). The use of winter is to show things dying off due to the cold. Dexter’s Winter dream has died off and with him skiing over the snow-covered golf course he is remembering his past. “Summer, fall, winter, spring, another summer, another fall—so much he had given of his active life to the incorrigible lips of Judy Jones” (Fitzgerald).

All of this does not seem to matter as he is overly excited to go see his boys at a camp down the creek.

In the first paragraph of “The Interlopers”, it states; “... a man stood one winter night watching and listening as though he waited for some beast of the woods to come within range of his vision and later of his rifle.” This created suspense because it makes the audience wonder if he’s hunting and if so, why is he hunting in the winter and in the dark? Tension builds as the paragraph progresses because the audience still doesn’t know who the man is and why he is standing in the outdoors. In the first paragraph of “The Lottery”, it states; “The people of the village begin to gather in a square between the post office and the bank around 10 o'clock.” This creates suspense because it makes the audience wonder why is the entire town gathering in a square around ten?

When one thinks of nature, the first thoughts that may come to mind are bright flowers, green landscapes, and endless beauty. However, in the short story “Snow”, written by Frederick Philip Grove, readers learn that nature will stand down to no man and can take lives in the blink of an eye. In short, this tale is about a man, Redcliff, who goes missing in the middle of a blizzard and is eventually found dead, leaving behind, a widow and family depending on him. He is found by a group of three men: Abe, Bill, and Mike who recovers his body and in the end, breaks the tragic news to the family. The concept of nature in this work is painted as a vicious powerful villain who strikes fear and awe in all who witness its power.
In the short story "the Interlopers" by Saki, the mood in the beginning is rather ominous and suspenseful, the author shows this with the setting which is shown in the first few lines of this story, "In a forest of mixed growth somewhere on the eastern spurs of the Carpathians, a man stood one winter night watching and listening", "Ulrich von Gradwitz patrolled the dark forest in quest of a human enemy". If we analyze these two sentences it really expresses the mood, the Carpathian mountains are very vast and treacherous, also the fact that it is a winter night and the man is alone really gives it that ominous feeling. One of the major things that really affects the mood in the beginning of the story is the fact that Ulrich was hunting a "human." The author makes this fact seem even more ominous by using different words, for instance "Ulrich von Gradwitz is patrolling (not walking or any other form of movement) the forest and he is looking for a "human enemy." This is makes the mood more chilling because it creates the thought that he is guarding something.
