For this journal, you need to respond, citing textual moments from both Christie’s and Carter’s texts, effectively
and clearly to the prompt:
Using particular moments from the novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles and at least two of the Carter short
stories from The Bloody Chamber (yes, have works cited entries and parenthetical citations), how do these two
authors, engage their readers within the worlds of the stories with their own reactions to the events of the
stories? What do these authors do to remind the readers that, as the participatory audience, they are, indeed,
active participants in the story telling? How do they use rhetorical or literary devices to manipulate audience
response? How might being aware of such manipulations serve a reader?
