Storyboard Text

  • "I looked upon the scene before me...upon the vacant eyelike windows... with an utter depression of soul" (14). This very descriptive setting not only tells us what the narrator sees but also gives us the first hint of a dark and gloomy mood. 
  • "He suffered much from a morbid acuteness for the senses... his eyes were tortured by the faint light..." (18). Rodrick Usher is explaining to the narrator his mental condition and this is important because this is the reason why he is even there.
  • "The vault in which we placed it was small, damp, and entirely without means of admission for light... " (24). This is import because this was the point where his sister, the last relative of his was buried alive.
  • "These appearances, which bewilder you, are merely electrical phenomena... so we will pass away this terrible night together" (27). This is important adds to the dark and gloomy mood by Usher dying leaving the narrator the only one left in the house. 
  • "While I glazed, this fissure rapidly widened... the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently over the fragments of the "House of Usher"" (30). As the story ends so does the House of Usher, and for the narrator so does the feeling of Usher.
