This storyboard does not have a description.
"TRUE! --nervous --very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses --not destroyed --not dulled them" (Poe 1).
"...no human eye --not even his --could have detected any thing wrong. There was nothing to wash out --no stain of any kind --no blood-spot whatever. I had been too wary for that. A tub had caught all --ha! ha!" (Poe 2).
""Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!" (Poe 3).
In the very first sentence of the story, Poe states that he was nervous, thus creating the nervous tone.
Poe was very confident in his murder skills, going as far as to believe no human eye could ever catch him. He was very pleased with his actions and fully believed he would get away with it. This gave off a confident and almost arrogant mood.
His guilt began to take over his entire body, fooling his mind into giving himself up. He began talking faster to escape the guilt he was facing. Finally, when he gave himself up, the reader feels the tone of overwhelming guilt.
