The tell-tale Heart by: Edgar Allan poe liliana martinez 11/2/18 p.2
"I think it was his eye. He had an eye of a vulture. Whenever it fell upon me my blood ran cold." In this scene the narrator is explaining why he wants to kill the man because of his eye.
The narrator and the old man argue and then the old man falls asleep. The narrator dims a lantern and waits for the perfect time to kill the old man. Once the old man sees him he tells the narrator to get out of his room.
The old man gets killed by the narrator. Once he is dead, the murderer chops off the limbs, arms, legs, etc. and stuff them under a floor board.
Police arrive to the home because neighbors complained about hearing a loud screech. "Do you guys not hear that?" The narrator begins to hear a ring in his ear.
The ringing got so loud that the narrator could no longer take it, leading him to shriek and admitting his crime to the police. "I admit the deed... tear up the plank, HERE , HERE...it is the beating of his hideous heart."
