The theme of "The Tell Tale Heart", a gothic fiction story by Edgar Allan Poe is saying don't commit a crime because in the end the guilty conscience may end you to confess. I say this because in paragraph 17 the author states that he got very pale. Also he says the sound increased louder and louder. He felt like the police officers heard the heart beating. So he had a guilty conscience and admitted to killing the man.
But why will you say I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses, not destroyed them.
When ever I look outside I hate that old mans eye. He is so nice but I HATE that eye!
Hello old man.
We can tell just by the first line that possible this man is crazy or he needs help.
Now we can tell this guy is crazy because he hates that old man just because of his eye.
Now the man is going to try to kill the old man. I say this because the author states, "I went to work! I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him."
This crazy man killed the old man now has to hide him and put him under the floor.
Finally I have killed the old man so I don't have to look at that eye!
Somebody told the police they heard screaming so they came to the door to check everything out.
We heard screaming. Open this door!
The man admits to killing him because he kept hearing the mans heartbeat under the floor.
I can't do this. I killed him he is under the floor!
