The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father. The tone and mood enhance the text by adding detail and facts.

This is significant because the author is describing the event of Grandfather trying to protect Mattie.

The two authors had similar intentions on the plot of each literary text. Furthermore, these decisions had influenced the tone of suspense dramatically. The works had both started innocent and took a darker turn as the plot continued on its railroad track; a specific path Poe or Morris leads one down can determine the ominous impression they implement into the stories as a whole; the techniques expressed in Ruined allowed the book to obtain a stronger hold on the reader’s interest, setting the plot in motion. Without Paula Morris’s tactical strategy, the novel would not have been as attention grabbing as it was. Moreover, Poe’s story contains dragged out scenes that increases the attitude of it.
