    terror on him systemically, to control over Charles even his mind. His strategy of threatening works effectively on Charles such as putting a crow on his bed, locking him in the Red Room, and locking him in a shed. Hill's writing contributes in a great extent on describing Charles's reaction when he was locked in the Red Room to demonstrate Edmund's evil. ‘Beyond the windows, the sky was steely grey, the rain teemed down.

Through all these sorts of language techniques, Susan Hill shows us how Edmund Hooper purposely leads Charles Kingshaw to dark, oppressive and dreadful Red Room and torture him in a psychological way as Edmund knew that Charles's weakness is moth. Thus Hill creates an evil impression of Edmund Hooper who is a bully so that makes…

    Most of the information that was sourced from conversing with the students, could be concluded just by watching them. Their body language exuded comfort.
