  • Exposition: The narrator introduces himself and the old man. 
  • The Old man
  • Narrator
  • The old man I lived with had never done me any wrong. I had loved the old man. Hearken. His evil eye, is what bothered me.
  • Killing him was the only way to rid myself of his eye.
  • Rising Action: The narrator watches the old man for seven long nights, but still he does not make the move. 
  • It is only a mouse crossing the floor.
  • His suppositions are what kept me under cover each time.
  • For 7 long nights I had watched him sleep. But I had to motive to kill since I did not see the eye. 
  • Climax: The old man is abducted by the narrator and gives his one final shriek. The narrator cuts up his body and hides the parts under the floor.
  • The carefulness and sagacity of my actions are incredible!
  • I'll hide his body under here. No one will find him.
  • Falling Action: A neighbor had hear the scream so the police come to investigate. As the conversation is going on, the narrator begins to hear a faint thumping noise. 
  • I had told them the shriek was mine, but what is this noise? Surely they hear it too.
  • Anything is more tolerable than their derision! 
  • Resolution: The narrator cannot take the agony and guilt so he tears up the boards to reveal the old man's body. 
  • My vehement tone was all fake. I admit the deed!
  • Hear this! The thumping of the old man's heart!
