Most of the narrations like in "The Black Cat" give a sense of irrationality. Hatred, melancholy, woe and distress, his characters rely more on the human side showing their mental state, taking his stories to have a bigger impact on the reader’s minds. This is attributed to the period where his works were written, as stated earlier. Poe’s usage of resources like dark atmospheres, messing around with the time in which the story is represented, this was most commonly used to alter reader’s ideas of the perfection and the beauty and divert them more to the contemporary side. He liked to mix different settings with times who were most likely to confuse the reader’s perception of it, making his stories more suspenseful.
Examples of this maturation are shown when he explains, "It was good that God kept the truths of life from the young as they were starting out or else they’d have no heart to start at all" (284).

Lewis mentions, “as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you,” which relates to the evilness the narrator obtains throughout the story till the death of his brother.
He frequently uses foreshadowing throughout The Book Thief and by using it, he creates false hope and suspense. Zusak makes the his audience want to keep reading to see if his inclinations about future events are true. Most of the foreshadowing in The Book Thief points to one significant event, the deaths of the important people in Liesel's life, one of the best examples of his use of false hope in his foreshadowing is this: “Preemptively, you conclude, as I would, that Rudy died that very same day of hypothermia. He did not.” (Zusak 242).
Although his physical appearance has gotten tremendously better overnight, his inner turmoil is still continuing. This can be understood as the minister being “dead on the inside. If you look into this, it shows that he is still struggling with his sin. His audience still does not know that he shares the same scarlet letter as Hester. This is why his message gives him “his most appropriate power.”
Bradbury and Poe both write enticing stories. For Some they would choose the more darker side of literature that is “The Cask of Amontillado.” Others prefer a simpler text with a real world problem imbedded into to the story such as “Chrysalis”.

Often times, when people read stories, they are able to connect what they read to another text or situation in which something similar has happened. If the feeling of having experienced something of a similar nature is strong enough, many would call this a case of Déjà vu. However, that is not the case at all with the stories “The Devil and Tom Walker”, “The Minister’s Black Veil”, and “The Scarlet Letter”. When reading literature from the same time period, there are often noticeable similarities within the texts. In the time period of romanticism, also known as the revolutionary period, this is especially true.
Hawthorne uses the term “sympathy” thirty-five times throughout The Scarlet Letter, and associates a vagueness and an ambivalence with the term.

But sometime when you gain perspective too quickly you can find yourself in a “fog ....” and feel nothing but “overwhelming ambiguity” (78). This is where most people feel falsely think they 've lost perspective because in these moments everything you know is challenged and your perspective must adapt for the new experiences you 've just encountered. When this happens it’s easier in the moment to believe you 're just confused and jumbled by your physical and mental chaos but infact what’s really happening is you are gaining knowledge and connecting parts of the world and ideas that really make no sense but with time will. THe stress of war makes it seem as though everything is changing like “love into hate,” and “ ugliness into beauty” (78). But what is important to note is that your connections and what you know to be “truth” is just disord but your perspective is not lost it 's just adding another dimension that your mind needs time to
The main weakness was the excessive cursing done by Vida. When a character curses a few times, it adds emphasis, but when it happens every couple pages, it loses its effect. The strengths included the sentence variety, like how they weren’t all compound and complex, and not all simple and short. It made the reading more interesting, and the plot twists, like Clancy being at Dairy Queen instead of Cate, and Jude dying, made you want to keep reading until you finished, and then
