Kate is in an institution for some unknown reason, and throughout the book there is no indication that Kate is going to ever be released.

For Poe, this genre might have offered him the chance to write about his sorrows, since, at the time The Raven was written according to Joy Lanzendorfer of Mental Floss6, his wife was deathly ill, he had already lost many to tuberculosis and he must have known, in his bosom’s core, that he was to sadly let another one of his beloved go. This is where both the genre and a dark, ebony omen come into play. It can be said that the gothic genre allows us to discuss quite painful subjects through use of copious symbols and parallels and that we can see the effects of such heartbreaking things on the human mind, that we can gradually follow the decline, the decay one might go through after the traumatising event of losing someone close to oneself. The raven, further, is of importance for it, according to Poe, symbolised “mournful and never-ending remembrance.”7, the type we see in the poem when the bird repeats ‘nevermore’. The protagonist dreads the word for it reminds him of how he is incapable of perhaps ever seeing his dear Lenore ever again and how he is unable to ever forget her, as she has left her mark, like our beloved do on us, on his

The location of this tale is not set in a stereotypical haunted castle or old mansion, which is a staple of gothic literature. The majority of the story takes place in a single room, where the insane narrator sneaks to look upon the old man while he sleeps. This room can be depicted as a gloomy and nebulous place, described as ¨black as pitch with the thick darkness¨ (Poe). Before even entering the room of the old man, the reader can gain an unsettling feeling from the narrator´s description of opening the door, saying he did this so cautiously ¨for the hinges creaked¨ (Poe). Due to further context, the reader can
The reader have to read between the lines if he wants to know why did she stay alone, why did not she like any changes or why did she kill her sweetheart. The narrator, it seems it is the town or more precisely people in the town, watch Emily´s life from a distance from the outside world. Her life is not visible for the outside people except her loyal servant. The narrator is not allowed to come to her closer. As a consequence of many events Emily became some kind of an icon in this small town.
In the Signalman, Dickens creates a sense of suspense by utilising the structure of his story. The story opens with the line “Halloa below there!” which immediately engages the reader’s attention as the readers are curious to know whom the narrator is speaking to. The story begins with one question and ends with another. The readers wonder why the unnamed person whom the narrator is talking to, is ‘below there’. This creates suspense as ‘below there’ hints at an underground environment, which subtly lends the story a creepy feel as only dark and covert things hide underground.
