  • Expostion
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • This is a story of two men, an older gentleman and a younger crazy man who believed he wasn't crazy. They lived together in a creaky old house. The man who believed he wasn't crazy had acute hearing and the older man was blind in one eye that was pale blue and had a flim over it."I loved the old man. He had never wronged me." pg.89
  • Falling Action
  • For 7 nights in a row the crazy man would very slowly and very quitely would sneak into the old man's bedroom and watch him sleep."I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him" pg.90
  • Resolution
  • On the eighth night when the young man was sneaking into his room the old man woke up and screamed because he thought someone was in his room but it was too dark for him to see. Once the young man opened his lauturn and it went onto his blue eye the young man killed the old man by suffocating his under his mattress. "I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him" pg.93
  • Unreliable Narrator
  • The crazy man cut  the old man's dead body into smaller pieces and stuffed him under the floor boards. The police arrived because the neighbors called about a scream. "There entered three men, who introduced themselves, with perfect suavity as officers of the police." pg.93
  • The police officers didn't find anything when they searched the house but because of the crazy young man's acute hearing made him hear the old dead man's heart beat and it was too much for him to handle so he confessed and got arrested."I admit the deed! Tear up the planks!" pg.94
  • The narrator was being unreliable in this scene because he says he can hear the heartbeat of a dead old man that he ripped up and put under the floor boards. "My head ached, and I fancied a ringing in my ears" pg.94
