How Are Suspense and Tension Created in The Red Room?

- How Are Suspense and Tension Created in The Red Room. In The Red Room by H.G. Wells a lot of suspense and tension is created.

Split Personalities in "The Fall of the House of Usher"

- Edgar Allan Poe was nothing short of a typical American writer. Many of his short stories present as if a mirror reflection of his own life: obstacles, miseries and anguish that his life was `peppered with'. Poe did not get on well with the society. He indulged in drinking to excess and gambling which was regarded as immoral at that time. Most importantly, he married an underage girl who was his cousin. This step made the pendulum swing. He became an outcast and by many of his contemporaries was perceived as a madman....   [tags: American Literature]

Olds’ Effective Use of Linking Devices in The Elder Sister

- When writing poetry, there are many descriptive methods an author may employ to communicate an idea or concept to their audience. One of the more effective methods that authors often use is linking devices, such as metaphors and similes. Throughout “The Elder Sister,” Olds uses linking devices effectively in many ways. An effective image Olds uses is that of “the pressure of Mother’s muscles on her brain,” (5) providing a link to the mother’s expectations for her children.
