In this scene there is the mad man, the old man he lives with, and of course the old man has a pale blue vulture eye with a film over it in his eye. "Why will you say that I am mad?...I loved the old man....He had the eye of a vulture--a pale blue eye, with a film over it."
The madman is entering the old mans room like every night.He has a lantern to shine a single ray of light on the vulture eye he is very careful to prevent the man from waking up "And every night, about midnight...I put in a dark lantern...I moved it slowly, very, very slowly, so that I might not disturb the old man's sleep...I undid the lantern so cautiously-cautiously-...I undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye."
In this scene the madman wakes up the old man, then kills him. "he moved on the bed suddenly, as if startled.... and the old man sprang up in the bed, crying out "whos there?"....The old man's hour had come!...The old man was dead."
Police arrive at the house at four o' clock, they came since a neighbor heard the shriek of the old man when the madman killed him. "it was four o' clock-still dark as midnight....there came a knocking at the door....There entered three men....as officers of the police."
In this scene the madman had heard a noise, it got so loud that he admitted the deed, killing the old man. "It grew louder --louder--louder!...."dissemble no more! I admit the deed! -- tear up the planks! here, here! --it is the beating of his hideous heart!""
I admit the deed! Tear up the planks! Here, here!
In this scene the madman is so frustrated about the sound he is hearing, he is now grating the boards with his chair. "I swung the chair upon which i had been sitting, and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose over and continually increased."
