Storyboard Text

  • The Tell-Tale Heart
  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Awa Barrow, Anna Chaj
  • Climax
  • The narrator wants to prove that he is not insane and offers a story as proof. The narrator's decision is to kill the old man so that the man's eye will stop looking at the narrator.
  • Falling Action
  • The narrator goes to the old man's room every night for a week, ready to kill him. The sleeping man won't open his eye. Since the eye, not the man, is the problem, the narrator can't kill him if the eye isn't open.
  • Conclusion
  • The narrator kills the old man with his own bed and then cuts up the body and hides it under the bedroom floor.
  • The narrator is calm when the police first show up. He gives them a tour of the house, and then invites them to hang out with him in the man's bedroom.
  • The narrator starts to hear a terrible noise, which gets louder, until the narrator can't take it anymore and tells the cops to look under the floorboards.
