  • The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe Bryan Aquino Ms. Lavin Period 8 | 11/26/17
  • The Narrator hates the eye of the old man as it causes his blood to run cold. Because of this, he decides to kill the old man to rid himself of the eye forever and tells the tale to prove that he is not mad.
  • Hello!
  • That "vulture" eye of his, it annoys me!
  • Every night for seven nights, the Narrator would sneak into the chamber of the old man at midnight and cunningly open a lantern just a bit to see if his "evil eye" was open. On the eighth night, he slipped up and made a noise, which caused the old man to wake up. They both stood in silence until...
  • ...The Narrator leaped into sight and vehemently tossed the old man onto the ground and suffocated him with the mattress. After this, he chopped up the body in a tub and hid it under the planks of the house
  • His hideous eye will bother me no more!
  • The police arrived at the old man's house after a neighbor had told them that they heard a shriek and came to investigate. After everything was deemed okay, the Narrator had the audacity to let them stay a little longer. A little later, the Narrator started to hear noises but thought nothing of it.
  • We have come at the request of the neighbors, who said they have heard a shriek 
  • The mysterious sounds vexed him to a point where he was unable to bear the noise and admitted to killing the old man as he thought the noises were originating from him.
  • I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! it is the beating of his hideous heart!
