Note that this is a 2­part assignment and that the questions below each instruction are only  suggestions to help you consider these.  1) Analyze the illustration of the house at the start of the HTML version of "The Shunned  House," addressing how fear is portrayed in one element of the illustration (the composition, the  border, the shading, the figures, the architecture, the flora, etc).  2) Select one written description of an element of the house from Chapter 1 and analyze how that is used to portray the house (ie, analyze the description of the fungi, the window, the contents of  the attic).  ­­­ What words are used in your selected description? What do they mean? how do they connote  a particular type of fear? How do they effect the connotation? Each of the 2 sections should be at least 150 words, for a minimum post of 300 words.  1) When I first looked at the illustration of the house, the first thing that popped out at me was how dark the picture was shaded, and how the artist made the shading of the house seem a little more darker, but yet still pop from the page. However, the shading made the house look scary, or haunting in the way that there is no trace of light. A house is supposed to a home that has light and always feels welcoming. The dark house makes people like running away and unsafe instead of having the feeling of protection that most houses, or homes have. The shading of the area outside of the house also seemed scary or haunting. The over grown plants and the trees made the dark seem even more frightening, due to the fact you had no idea if something was out there. It made the yard look unwelcoming which adds on to the creepiness of the house. 2) The element of the house that seemed the scariest or haunting part would be the attic. In most horror movies, there is always a built up of a scenario that leads the character going into the attic and getting hurt or killed. So, due to having this back ground in watching movies it made me even more anxious as the main character in this story climbed the ladder to the attic, because it made me want to know whether something was going to attack or not. The author described the attic as “vast” and was lighted by a little bit of light coming through the windows. This description of the attic made it seem unwelcoming, desolate, and brooding. The “massed wreckage” of the all the items made the “monstrous and hellish shapes” to come alive. This brought out the fear of the dark, and it also brought out the fear of someone attacking us such as a monster.
