Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Aaahhh!
  • Climax
  • Poe is explaining how he is not mad and is telling a story to prove himself. "Nervous --very, very dreadfully nervous . . . How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthy --how calmly I can tell you the whole story".
  • Falling Action
  • The narrator watches the old man sleeping for seven days but something goes wrong. "I looked in upon him while he slept. Upon the eighth night I  was more than usually cautious in opening the door. . . . I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern, when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening, and the old man sprang up in bed, crying out  --'Who's there".
  • Resolution
  • The old man wakes up with a groan, with Poe to be stuck in the same position. "Presently I heard a silent groan of mortal terror."
  • Sespensful saga
  • The narrator hid the body under the floorboards and cleaning up any evidence of the scene. "I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber . . . "
  • Poe confessed about the murder after the heart beat of the old man got louder and louder. "I admit the deed, --tear up the planks, here, here, --It is the beating of his hideous heart".
