Storyboard Text

  • Perspective and Motivation
  • The creepy eye was looking at me. So I killed the man.
  • Fortunado insulted me. It was time for him to go.
  • Claim
  • The old man did't do anything to me. I know I shouldn't kill him.
  • Text Evidence
  • Your family crest is stupid, my friend!
  • The main character in "The Tell Tale Heart" by Edgar Allen Poe, did not have any justification for his actions other than that he was insane. Montresor from "The Cask of the Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe had some justification which was that Fortunato had insulted him many times.
  • Analysis
  • Haha. Nice joke, my friend.
  • Montresor from "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe had more justification than the narrator from "The Tell Tale Heart" by Edgar Allen Poe.
  • Counterclaim
  • Ah! But you see, you knew what you were doing, therefore, we can!
  • "The thousand injuries of Fortunado I had borne best as I could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge." (Poe, 1)
  • Wrap Up
  • I had more of a reason to kill someone than the narrater from "That Tell Tale Heart" by Edgar Allen Poe.
  • This shows that Montresor's action she were justified because Fortunado had hurt him and insulted him. Montresors actions we're done because of anger.
  • You have insulted my family and me. For that, you must pay!
  • Some might say that the narroraters actions we justified because he was going mad and could not be held accountable for his actions. This, however, was not true. The narrorater knew that what he was doing was wrong. The narrorater states, "Object, there was none. Passion, there was none. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult." (Poe, 3). This shows that he had nothing motivating him to kill the mad, therefore could have stopped himself.
  • I can not be head accountable for my actions. I was going mad.
  • In conclusion, Montresors actions were more justified than the narrators actions.
