information that

is presented.

Suspense—having

to hold various

possible conclusions

at bay as you wait

to see

what happens; reader is expected

to enjoy

the suspense, and to read to

find out

what will happen.

Foreshadowing—clues

left by the

author as

to possible outcomes.

Red

herring—a kind of

foreshadowing clue

that leads the reader to

false conclusions

.

Slide6

The

reader’s job is to put the puzzle

pieces offered
