The story then tells us how the narrator murdered a neighbor, not for money or out of hatred, but because of the neighbor’s pale blue eye. Though the man is dear to him, the narrator was struck by the idea of killing the man, and thus his blue eye, and could not shake the idea. Once the thought of killing the man entered him, he had no choice but act on it. Therefore, the narrator nightly observed the man while he slept for a week; on the eighth night the narrator carefully and stealthily crept into the neighbor’s room to murder him.
In this case, Poe lets the reader know right away and throughout the story, that the probable outcome, will be Montresor getting revenge on Fortunato. 2)How readable and interesting is the style? Poe's style is interesting, but somewhat difficult to read in the beginning. At the start of the story, Poe develops the plot of the story in a difficult manner. For example, Poe writes, "It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong."
It was very difficult for Truman Capote to write this novel because he had to gather massive amounts of data in order to make the book factual. Next, he needed to organize that data in such a way that it would be interesting to the reader. Secondly, Capote used many literary techniques such as flashback and dramatic irony to make his novel more interesting. Finally, this novel was very appealing to all people because it was based on a true crime. Edward Weeks wrote ?he is providing the readers with a high-minded aesthetic excuse for reading about a mean, sordid crime.(160)?

Because the couple withheld a needed drug in order to kill her, the murder could never be proven. This story inspired Wargrave to plan multiple murders of people who had killed but could not be prosecuted under the law. He thought of the “Ten Little Indian” rhyme that he loved as a child for its series of inevitable deaths. Wargrave took his time gathering a list of victims, bringing up the topic of unpunished murders in casual conversations and hoping someone would mention a case of which they knew.
Dupin finds a worthy adversary in the antagonst, Minister D_. Dupin must identify with the mind of the criminal in order to retrieve a stolen letter and return it to its rightful owner. With the dynamic relationship between Dupin, Prefect G_., and Minister D_., Poe skillfully illustrates that an ingenious felon will always outwit his opponent if the opponent is incapable of identifying with the felon’s intellect. The plot of the story is about how a clever and ingenious amateur detective solves a mystery that has baffled the police for months. The story begins with a visit from the Prefect of Police to Dupin’s apartment for advice on a matter of “extreme urgency and sensitivity.” At first, Prefect G_.
Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer, literary critic, and editor. Despite of his many talents, Edgar Allan Poe is best acknowledge for his poems and short stories, primarily his tales consist of mystery and deception of death. For instance, in the story “The Masque of the Red Death”, the story involves a plague that is killing the people, in which the Prince and his closest friend want to avoid. In the story “The Cask of Amontillado” is about a perfect murder planed out for revenge, in which he succeeds. In the story “The Tell-tale heart” involves the murder of an old man, in which the killer’s heart makes him say the truth.
A successful crime story must have something to hook the reader, a mystery that keeps the reader hooked to the story, clues as the story continues, a surprise that the reader like so that they read on and the solution at the end which tell the reader who and why the person done the crime. These are the elements that are needed for a successful crime story. I also think that the language is used well as an image is automatically put into the readers head by reading through the story and so the reader takes a bit at a time to bring themselves to their own conclusions. Another reason why I think Conan Doyle's stories have been so popular is because the reader interacts with the story and so they try and solve the mystery themselves. This is why I think Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's crime stories have been so popular.
Why Ask Why? The most important part of any type of book or story is that it be interesting. This proves to be particularly important in detective fiction as well. What could be more interesting than having a crime committed in front of you, given all (or most) of the details and still not be able to figure it out? This is exactly how detective fiction authors draw people into these stories and books.
