True!-nervous-very, very dreadfully nervous i had been and am; but why will you say that i am mad? the disease had sharpened my senses-not destroyed-not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. i heard al things in the heaven and in the earth. i heard many things in the hell. how, then, am i mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily -how calmly i can tell you the whole story
would a madman have been so wise at this? and then, when my head was well in the room, i undid the lantern cautiously-oh, so cautiously- cautiously (for the hinges creaked)- i undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye. And this i did for seven long nights-every night just at midnight
