  • Tell Tale Heart Storyboard
  • By Samson Judd
  • How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily—how calmly I can tell you the whole story.
  • He must open his eye for me to murder him. It is not him that vexes me, it is his evil eye.
  • The old man was dead. I removed the bed and examined the corpse. Yes, he was stone, stone dead.
  • Poe had the narrator preface the story to create an air of mystery and draw readers into the story.
  • First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs.
  • Poe had the narrator sneak into the old man's room every night for a week to create a tense atmosphere.
  • I foamed—I raved—I swore! I swung the chair upon which I had been sitting and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose over all and continually increased
  • ..Poe had the narrator kill the old man as the climax of the story. He also did it to show that the narrator is very mad.
  • Poe had the narrator talk about dismembering the old man's corpse methodically to show that the narrator thinks he is not mad because of his "wise precautions".
  • Poe had the narrator hear a noise (his own heartbeat) when the police officers showed up to symbolize the tiny bit of resentment the narrator felt for killing the old man.
