Storyboard Text

  • CD:  "A letter, however, had lately reached me in a distant part of the country-a letter from him-which, in its wildly importunate nature, had admitted of no other than a personal reply (2). " CM: The narrator, who is not named, receives a letter from his from his friend from boyhood, Roderick Usher, who is ill. 
  • CD: "A cadaverousness of complexion; an eye larger, liquid, and luminous beyond comparison; lips somewhat thing and very pallid..." (17). CM: The narrator walks into the gloomy house, and sees his sickly friend, who is unrecognizable, to him. This adds to the eery mood.
  • CD: "At the request of Usher, I personally aided him in the arrangements of the temporary entombment...The mockery of a feint blush upon the bosom and the face, and that suspiciously lingering smile upon the lip which is so terrible in death" (17). CM:Usher went to bury his twin sister, Madeline, who he thought was to be dead, but had a pale blush to her cheeks. 
  • CD: " ... there did stand the lofty and enshrouded figure of the lady Madeline of Usher" (30). CM: Lady Madeline "rises" from the dead and tries to escape the vault, where she was buried alive.  
  • CD:  " the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently over the fragments of the "House of Usher" (30). CM: As Lady Madeline comes up from the dead, and scares her brother to death while falling to her death as well, the narrator flees as the house crumbles.
