Continuing to write

Goal: Writing paragraphs on irony and theme for our comparative analysis paper.


  1. Read 
  2. If you need to you can re-watch the Mood Paragraph tutorial video, but you also need to add two more body paragraphs to your essay today, the ones about theme and irony. 

Writing Task:
Consider the short story “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe and the movie The Night of The Hunter (1955) directed by Charles Laughton. What techniques do the author and director use to create the theme and mood?

Write a comparison/contrast essay discussing the similarities and differences between these two works. Keep in mind how the author and filmmaker use various literary and cinematic techniques to create mood, theme, and irony.
