Storyboard Text

  • "Perhaps the eye might have discovered a barely perceptible fissure... extending from the roof of the building in front down the wall in a zigzag formation"(16). The house of Usher can be shown as a symblol for the Owner of the house falling apart.
  • "An air of stern, deep, and irredeemable gloom hung over and pervaded all"(16). The author makes the house spooky as the narrator walks in to greet the Usher.
  • "At the request of the Usher, I personally aided him in the arrangements for the temporary entombment"(23). The Usher buries his dead and has a room for the dead making the house very spooky and creepy.
  • "Not hear it?-yes, I hear it, and have heard it. Long-long-long- many minutes, many hours, many days, have i heard it... we have put her living in the tomb!"(29). The Usher knew she was alive for many days but did not bother to tell which shows the evil of the character.
  • "There was blood upon her white robes... then, with a low moaning cry, fell heavily inward upon the person of her brother"(30). The Lady Madeline escapes her tomb and kills her brother with her last remaining strength, which was a very big plot twist in the story as the narrator flees the mansion scared.
