  • The Tell Tale Heart
  • Tone
  • Now at this point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded--with what caution--with what foresight--with what dissimulation I went to work!
  • Word Choice
  • Yes, he was stone, stone dead. I placed my hand upon the heart and held it there for minutes. There was no pulsation. His eve would trouble me no more."
  • "He had the eye of a vulture--a pale blue eye with 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."
  • Imagery
  • "And then, when my head was well in the room, I undid the lantern cautiously- oh so, cautiously--cautiously (for the hinges creaked)-- I undid it just so much that a single ray fell upon the vulture eye/"
  • Style
  • "But anything was better than this agony! Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer!..'Villains!' I shrieked, 'dissemble no more! I admit the deed!"
