Homework Help: Literature

Posted by mysterychicken on Monday, November 9, 2009 at 12:01pm.

'A surprise ending to a short story only works when the ending is believable. The writer must carefully prepare readers for what is to come, supplying hints about the resolution without revealing it.'

I have to write how Poe forshadowed Fortunato's end in The Cask of Amantillado and how the short story The Necklace had a surprise twist. What techniques did the authors use? Please help, just by giving me an idea so I can write

Thanks
