  • Tell Tale Heart Genieve. Rodriguez Mr. Smith CP English 5-6 26 October 2018
  • He had the eye of a vulture a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees ,very gradually. I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.
  •  I knew that he could not see the opening of the door, and I kept pushing it on steadily, steadily. 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
  • The old man's hour had come! With a loud yell, I threw open the lantern and leaped into the room. He shrieked once --once only. 
  • "Who's there?"
  • In an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him. I then smiled gaily, to find the deed so far done.  The old man was dead. I removed the bed and examined the corpse. Yes, he was stone, stone dead. I placed my hand upon the heart and held it there many minutes. There was no pulsation. He was stone dead. His eve would trouble me no more.
  • I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire
  •  I worked silence. First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs. I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings. There was nothing no stain of any blood-spot whatever.
  • Almighty God! -no, no! They heard! --they suspected! --they knew! -louder!, ;louder!  I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
  • There entered three men, who introduced themselves, as officers of the police. A shriek had been heard by a neighbor during the night; suspicion of foul play had been aroused; and they (the officers) had been deputed to search the premises.
