number Analysis of stuff happens by David Hare. Plays are dramatic sets used by script and in response to an outcry in the society. In Stuff happens single response by David Hare, he tries to respond towards the war in Iraq and its implication to the people’s lives. The war was detrimental and led to loss of lives. Soldiers put their lives on the line due to what the writer says is poor politics. Professor Wolfowitz says that war should be the last resort, to him the war over exercises US power. Arguments ensue as to whether to pursue war or seek other administrative methods in solving conflict. The book tries to respond to the ugly and untidy results of war.Suspense is a style employed by the scriptwriter. Suspense leaves the audience expecting more from the performance. This creates a sense of anxiety in knowing how the story unfolds. The oomph that comes with suspense arouses and allows the story to take unexpected twists making it more interesting.Suspense creates the mood for the author to change the tone in the story (Saricks 232). Suspense is the juice in the act, which enables the audience to engage in critical evolution of the script. It opens the paly to wider perspectives, which could render different opinions. For instance, when Blair and Bush contact the president does not answer fully whether he called off the mission to apprehend Osama. The audience questions what would have conspired in the story. Who breached their protocol to make such a directive? Why float such a command at the current need of apprehending criminals?The style of suspense has aided the artist to arise a state of anxiety of a feeling of not knowing what would happen after a certain scene. This enables the writer to engage the reader in the wider perspective of the book. For instance, when the journalist first disrupts the Tenets briefing claiming the harm that would arise if Bush avenged war on Iraq. The journalist warns Bush of the impending danger questioning his leadership. He warns him of Sadam killing people for a flimsy reason of proximity to him. The concept of suspense in plays ensures personal relation to the story with the reader. Bush in the story tends to exercise unquestionable leadership. In fact, he says he does not owe anyone any explanation to his actions. He quotes,’ maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something. But I dont feel like I owe anybody an explanation.’ He expresses his freedom in ruling people and his troop at large to war on Iraq (Saricks 251). He calls on a meeting trying to seek on whether to pursue the attack but he has already set his mind on attacking. Powell tries to persuade him not to because of humanitarian reason but Bush ignores al that to settle old scores. His reason for carrying on with war is that his colleague Clinton tries out non-war ways of settling scores but fails. This enhances Bushes decision to war on Iraq.The writer uses the stylistic art of suspense when in a meeting with the director of CIA. Rumsfeld and Tenet know and think in the same line being CIA operatives but Powell does not seem to understand the lingo. The reader is also engaged in this when in chapter seven when the Tenet shoots a possibility the building shown in the map may be the weapons manufacture house for Iraq. The writer expects the reader to read in between the lines and know what the CIA agents have in mind. However, their thought was if they would be able to attack such a base then they would disarm their rivals and engage them in combat. Bushes leadership is also secretive and employs ranking levels. When Bush pulls Donald aside and informs him on executing war in Iraq. In conclusion, the writer manages to exercise this art to engage the suspense and establish the basis of the story.
