exposition: The narrator of the story tells us that he is not a mad man and he's just a man who simply just had an idea that he ended up carrying out.
conflict: The narrator's idea was to rid himself of an old man, THE old man's, evil pail blue vulture eye forever.
rising action: The narrator looked upon the man sleeping everynight, shining a flashlight in on the weird-looking eye.
climax: The narrator killed the old man, chopping his body into pieces, and hiding them perfectly to where no one cound notice that anything was out of place.
falling action: A neighbor heard the old man scream before he was murdered, so they called the police. The narrator took them right to the crime room and 'buttered them up'.
resolution: The narrator kept hearing the heartbeat of the old man (who was dead) and it kept getting louder and louder while the police were just cheesing away. He though the police were mocking him of his unslickness and confessed to a crime, THE crime.
