In “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe, the author uses verbal irony to create suspense in order to engage their readers. Poe provides many hints as to what is going to happen to Fortunato throughout the story. This is done for the sake of keeping the reader’s imagination running while also leaving them on their toes anticipating what is going to happen next. For this to be created Poe uses verbal irony. For example, when Fortunato declares, ‘“... the cough’s a mere nothing; it will not kill [him].
"The world is made up of two classes-the hunters, and the huntees.” This short story written by Richard Connell, “The Most Dangerous Game,” contains many literary devices that make a story come alive. In this specific short story, conflict, plot, and suspense are used to push the story forward. Connell's way of using these three specific elements keeps the reader attentive, and creates a memory for the reader of an incredible short story.

This character may be speaking about him/herself or sharing events that he/she is experiencing. In The Catcher In The Ray Holden Caulfield is telling a story. Holden Caulfield is the narrator and he tells the whole story from his own point of view.
In literature, archetypes “evoke deep and perhaps unconscious responses in a reader” (2043). Similarly, Hawthorne uses various symbols in “The Minister’s Veil,” and “The Birthmark” to enhance, and clarify his stories’ themes. Hawthorne’s tenacity on his symbols leaves a huge burden on them. His stories become overly dependent, so much so if a symbol is too obscure the story becomes a riddle. Consequently, the birthmark fails to establish the story’s theme, and thus the story trembles.
The endings of his works are always a surprise and can have very different meanings to different people depending on how they interpreted it. An example where Poe uses symbolism is in his short story The Masque of The Red Death the first symbol gather from this story is the character himself, Prince Prospero. From Poe saying Prince you
Tension and surprise are two of the most important things an author could include in their work. Tension and suspense can make a literary piece last in the readers’ minds-- memorable. Suspense, surprise, and tension can be very delicate in terms of their effectivity; the author has to know what he or she is doing when handling these literary plot elements-- it is challenging to use these elements in an effective manner. With that being said, I can personally assert that both the authors pulled it off. The interlopers is about an old rivalry between two men and their family, the story revolves around their unexpected reconciliation during their encounter with one another in a dark forest.
The Raven crafts the idea of suspense by using a range of different types of literary features. The use of hyperboles creates more suspense because the more exaggeration used grips the reader in more. Describing the Raven as “Ghastly, Grim and ancient” (8) makes the idea that the author is trying to get through, more coherent as Poe is offering more description. The way Poe repeats his “Sorrow for the lost Lenore” (2) helps embed the idea that he misses Lenore but it also makes the reader wonder where she went, why she left and why she is so important, which creates suspense. The way Poe uses repetition and pathos when he is trying to get an idea through is very prominent.
Nick’s mesmerizing voice and physical presence in the book urges readers to examine his presence in peculiar ways. This is another indication of how Fitzgerald manipulated scenes and excerpts of the novel to get the effects he wanted.

An epilogue is more than a body count. This idea is written by T.S. Garp a fictional writer that was dreamed up by John Irving. John, in stating this, isn't just coming up with a nice sounding quote for Garp to say that will gain him more interest; he already had too much of that. On the contrary, he was actually using this statement as a warning to the world, the people that are reading, and more importantly a message that would have been life saving, for multiple people, for Garp himself to hear.
