Suspense is the feeling of curiosity, uncertainty, or even dread about what is going to happen next. This is a common feeling when reading stories from Edgar Allen Poe, who uses suspense in all his short stories. Through the use of signal words and vocabulary that indicate the passage of time Poe is able to create a feeling of suspense within the story that captures his readers’ attention. For example, the words “again” and “then” are signal words which guide the reader in the direction the author wants them to follow. Another example used to create suspense are the words that show time passing, such as before, earlier that morning and later that evening these words indicate the sequence of events.

Throughout the entire story, the author was able to incorporate description, symbolism, and inner thought, to build suspense. To start off, Edgar Allan Poe used an abundant amount of inner thought, which was able to build suspense when reading.

“The Tell Tale Heart” Suspense Paragraph Final Draft It is apparent that the element of suspense is elevated via the use of various literary devices in the short story, “The Tell Tale Heart,” by Edgar Allan Poe. Poe uses repetition for great effect in order to further the feeling of suspense throughout the story. For instance, the narrator states, “I moved it slowly, very, very slowly…” (Poe 3).
There are times in life where people do commit a small mistake, or a huge crime, but what really matters is if one will listen to their conscience. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the main character lives with an old man who has an eye that “resembled that of a vulture--a pale blue eye, with a film over it.” The story revolves around the main character’s obsession over the eye, and how he got rid of it-- by murdering the old man. Towards the end of the story, the young man confesses to the police about his insane stunt after they searched his house. In “The Tell-Tale Heart,” Edgar Allan Poe focused on having the reader know more than the secondary character, using description, and using a first-person narrator, to build suspense.
The author uses a lot of suspense to portray this courage, like the example above. He uses words like “I pressed the logout button” (145) and ends paragraphs in suspenseful ways. One great ending is when Wade is about to see Sorrento and do deals with him, and it ends the entire chapter with the words “and tapped the chat link button.” (133), making us think and assume about what is happening next. This shows suspense in a sense because it turns a tiny action into an almost book-changing one mainly by dropping off at the most exciting moment.
Dewey closed his eyes; “ he kept them shut until he heard the thud-snap that announces a rope-broken neck” (McClain). In addition to this, Capote mentions that Dewey could find it “ possible to look at [Perry] beside him without anger,with, rather, a measure of sympathy” (Capote 246). Dewey didn’t feel that way towards Dick even though he didn 't commit the murders. Capote’s bias makes the audience feel more sympathetic towards Perry and more hatred towards Dick, even though Perry is the killer. Another reason why readers believed that Perry shouldn’t have received capital punishment is because he has a mental illness.
Captured with Obsession Obsession can control someone’s entire life. If people are unable to handle their fascination, it can alter their reality. Obsession can lead people to extreme acts.
