1800's Old mans roomat midnight "And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it"
The point of view for the narrator is 1st person. "I was singularity at ease"
The main conflict is that the narrator wants to kill old man because of his weird looking eye. "I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of this eye forever."
The theme is that you shouldn't do anything because the guilt will overtake it will overtake whether its stealing from a friend or killing an old man. "Villiains! I shrieked, dissemble no more i Admit the deed!
The story symbolizes the human brain and cant sustain that level of guilt. His heart was beating out of his chest. "Anything was more tolerable than this derision" That shows that he couldnt handle the guilt
The suspense is towards the end while the guilt was taking over the man and the reader wasnt sure if he was gonna caught or live with guilt the rest of his most likly sorry life. They heard! they suspected they knew!
