Mystery vs. Suspense Essay Assignment

  1. Today you will research the different genres of mystery and suspense. First, you will read two articles that both compare and contrast mystery and suspense. Then, you will view a video on Alfred Hitchcock’s explanation of the differences between mystery and suspense.

Write an essay comparing and contrasting the information presented in the video of Alfred Hitchcock, the article Difference Between Mystery and Suspense, and the article Mystery vs. Suspense Thriller Book Genres by Janet Smith, write an essay comparing and contrasting the two types of genres. When you write, consider each author’s perspective and purpose and use evidence from both articles and the video to support your answer.
