Storyboard Text

  • Simile - "at length a simple dim ray, like the thread of the spider, shot from out the crevice and fell full upon the vulture eye."
  • Imagery - " He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it."
  • Metaphor - "He had the eye of a vulture"
  • Inference - "Object there was none. Passion there was none. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire. I think it was his eye! yes, it was this!
  • Foreshadowing - "How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily --how calmly I can tell you the whole story." 
  • Irony - "If still you think me mad, you will think so no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body. The night waned, and I worked hastily, but in silence. First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs."
