This storyboard does not have a description.
"During the whole of a dull, dark and soundless day... I had been passing alone, on horseback... within view of the melancholy House of Usher..."(13). This shows that the house was dark and spooky. Note the large fissure in the front of the house.
"Surely, man had never before so terribly altered, in so brief a period, as had Rodrick Usher"(17). This shows that the narrator had barely recognized who he was speaking to due to the fact that Ushers' appearance had changed so much.
"I personally aided him in the arrangements for the temporary entombment... I learned that the deceased and himself had been twins..."(23-24). This shows that Usher had more of a connection to his sister and were connected as twins as he is burying her.
"We have put her living in the tomb!... I now tell you that I heard her first feeble movements in the hollow coffin"(29). This shows that Usher had known that she was alive while she was entombed, but he never set her free. Why?
"...bore him to the floor a corpse... this fissure rapidly widened-there came a fierce breath of the whirlwind... and the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently over the fragments of the House of Usher"(30). This shows that the house and Usher had been connected as he declined in state so did the house. When he finally fell so did the house until both were sunken leaving only the narrator to continue.
