By writing a story, an author becomes capable of delivering their thoughts to readers, and foreshadowing is one of the best tools that authors can use to implant dramatic effects in the story.

This literary tool is used a number of times, most commonly imagery. Bradbury uses imagery in the text to create an image in the reader’s mind to then deliver the underlying message of the plot to the audience. Using such gives a deeper description of what is being told, “Montag had only an instant to read a line, but it blazed in his mind for the next minute as if it stamped there with fiery steel”. (Bradbury, 37) With this statement the reader is implanted with how much of a burning passion that Montag has grown for books and reading.

Foreshadowing is a very powerful literary device used in most, if not all, pieces of literature. Authors who intentionally add this aspect to their story use it as a way of building anticipation in the reader’s mind, thus adding the feeling of suspense. Ken Kesey masterfully applies this concept throughout his novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, by utilizing the intricate web of connections that he spins between characters and other elements present in the text. McMurphy’s eventual downfall is foreshadowed through subjects that he is subtly linked to such as both the dog and Ruckly. McMurphy’s behavioural patterns are likened to a dog several times in times throughout the novel, such as when Chief Bromden describes him sitting down, “He goes over to his chair, gives another big stretch and yawn, sits down and moves around for a while like a dog coming to rest” (Kesey 48), and when Harding says, “Friend… you… may be a wolf… You have a very wolfy roar,” (67).
Imagery is a common literary device that authors use to engage a reader into the story, by painting the scene in the audience’s mind. Authors would describe several details of the event, using imagery in their writing. The short story, The Most Dangerous Game, by Richard Connell, incorporates imagery to intensify the suspense within the literary piece. By using this literary element, Connell depicts a mood that escalates from casualness to increasing panic. The story’s state of casualness is only the beginning of the upcoming fiasco.
In the compelling short stories, The Cask of Amontillado and The Sound of Thunder, many literary devices were used. One of which was foreshadowing. Foreshadowing is used in nearly every story to convey clues that the reader can pick up on, hinting at events that may occur later in the story. In Edgar Allen Poe's short story The Cask of Amontillado and Ray Bradbury’s The Sound of Thunder, both stories construct suspense through constant uses of foreshadowing. There are several examples in the short stories that were mentioned earlier, and will be discussed in this essay to show how foreshadowing is effectively used to create suspense.
Stephen king once said “Description begins in the writer's imagination, but should finish in the reader's.” That is the importance of descriptive language. Descriptive language is one reason books are so popular. It helps the reader connect with the character and helps make the story so good. It grabs your mind, and puts it in the room with the characters. In the book “The House of The Scorpion” by Nancy Farmer the author uses descriptive language and figurative language to create a mental picture, and helps to grab our attention.
