It's not just the placement of the story

In HTRLLAP chapters 19 & 20

I found such insight to the way the authors set us up by the setting of their stories in places that are meaningful.  Not that I didn't realize that some obvious locations have to be there, like "The Old Man and the Sea can only take place in the Caribbean of course," What I am speaking of is the more detailed descriptions that set such a mood of bringing us into the work, for instance referring to Edgar Allen Poe's work "the narrator spends the opening pages describing a landscape and a day as bleak as any in literature" and he goes on and on and on to set such a vivid picture that you are almost frightened before you get the plot.
