In the book, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, the reader is able to gather a sense of suspense, intricately worked by the author. Capote uses these crafts such as diction, tone and imagery to add suspense to this murder mystery, which, in many cases, leaves the reader wondering, what’s next? From chapter to chapter, page to page, he integrates these literary devices into his work; “Blue-furred, orange-eyed, red-fanged, a tiger snarled upon his left bicep; a spitting snake, coiled around a dagger, slithered down his air; and elsewhere skulls gleamed, a tombstone loomed, a chrysanthemum flourished.” (Page 32). The imagery used in this passage allows the reader to view the tattoo as exactly how Capote wants the reader to view it.
In modern literature, suspense and tension are almost essential in producing works that are both successful and interesting to the reader. These two aspects of literature are especially important in Truman Capote's, In Cold Blood, which delineates the story of how a mere robbery attempt concludes in the death of four well-respected and affable family members. Although the reader is cognizant of various outcomes in the story beforehand, effectively retaining the reader's interest through suspense and tension. Capote particularly engenders this suspense and tension by shifting between simultaneous events, waiting to disclose the details of the murder, and suggesting fallacies in America's judicial system.
Imagine wanting to kill someone because of how their eye looks. You wouldn’t imagine that would you? The main character in “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe did. In the story, the crazy main character wanted to kill an old man because, he didn’t like that the way “The pale blue eye” (Poe 89) looked on him. So he had this thrilling plan to kill him, sneak into his room, and steal his “pale blue eye” (Poe 89) from him.
In the mystery, And Then There Were None, by Agatha Christie, Philip Lombard created suspense throughout the novel in many instances. 10 victims were sent letters by a man named U.N. Owen to come to an island called Soldier Island where they were slowly killed off in the same ways as a poem titled “Ten Little Soldier Boys.” On the first evening, a gramophone reveals each of their crimes. This ultimately leads to each of their deaths. Everyone has something hidden about themselves whether that is some sort of sickness or even something that is in their luggage with them.
The ominous poem “The Raven”, written by Edgar Allen Poe, creates suspense throughout by using a combination of different literary devices, such as hyperbole, repetition and pathos. Although the use of literary devices helps create the mood, the way Poe incorporates a variety of structural elements, which include multiple stanzas, longer sentences and the similarities of structure between the poem and a story, help create a darker mood. The poem is set during the mid nineteenth century, at what is referred to as the witching hour, also known as midnight. The setting alone creates a very dark, suspenseful mood. “The Raven” crafts the idea of suspense by using a range of different types of literary features.
The source of the terrifying suspense in this story, “Poison,” by Roald Dahl, is the thought that Harry has a snake between his stomach and his bed sheet and doesn't want to be bitten. It is possible that there was a snake under the sheet because Harry said “I was reading. Lying on my back reading and I felt something on my chest, behind the book. Sort of tickling. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw this little krait sliding over my pajamas.”
Yes, the author of “The Outsider” is credible for his presentation of events. The author is convincing because the story is told in first person point of view because it uses the pronouns “I” and “me”, which means that as the reader we don’t know what’s going to happen until the narrator does it. The narrator has no idea what’s going on because he doesn’t remember anything from his past (Lovecraft, 22). Also, the narrator thinks that it is normal to be surrounded by dead bodies, to recall absolutely no socialization, to not even speak, and to be craving light (Lovecraft, 22-23). It’s not until the end of the story that he realizes his true self (a monster) by looking into a mirror (Lovecraft, 29).

Alfred Hitchcock has created a masterpiece for the cinematic sphere of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer productions. On Sept. 17, the thriller North by Northwest made its debut in the country of origin, the United States. It stars Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint.
Both of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, North by Northwest and Rear Window, were great movies with lots of suspense. The suspense, however, would not have been created without the entire mise-en-scene of the movies. Hitchcock was a master at using the elements of lighting, sound, and cinematography to heighten the suspense in his movies. The first key element of mise-en-scene that played a significant role in both movies was lighting.

When you watch a tv show and do you find it annoying when they go to commercial break right before something important is about to happen? That is an example of suspense. You usually sit through the commercials to see what happens right? It keeps you hooked. The short story that I will be referring to and drawing examples of suspense from is Pickman’s Model by H.P.

Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film Psycho redirected the entire horror genre, and in doing so dismantled the prudent 1950’s societal barriers of cinema. Although unseen for its potential by the large studios of the time, Psycho became one of the crowning achievements of film history. While based partially on a true story of murder and psychosis from Wisconsin, the widespread viewing of this tale made way for a new era of film and ushered in a new audience of movie goers. The use of violence, sexual explicitness, dramatic twists, sound, and cinematography throughout this film gave Hitchcock his reputable name and title as master of suspense.
To the unknown eye, Hitchcock has carefully and skillfully used Mise-en-scene to his advantage, causing the audience to feel fear and a sense of caution towards the character of Norman Bates. It isn’t until we reflect back on the scene and notice how intelligently Hitchcock uses the positioning of props and the characters, lighting, camera angle and staging, that we notice how he has added meaning to his characters but has also to the film, creating suspense and fear from one scene to the end of the film. Ultimately proving the point that Hitchcock “the master of suspense” uses Mise-en-scene to not only help make a brilliant film but also uses it as his disposal to add meaning in his
