That vulture eye is haunting me, I must get rid of it.
Soon I hope this eye is gone.
Again and Again
In The Tell-Tale Heart there is foreshadowing. When he is talking about the vulture eye he is also planning on killing the old man. It is foreshadowing because it gives us a hint on what is happening next.
It was me who did it. I killed the man!
The again and again in the story is when the narrator is talking about the eye. He is repeating that this "vulture" eye is haunting him and he must get rid of it.
Also in The Tell Tale Heart, the narrator states, "He had the eye of a vulture-a pale blue eye, with a film over it," (Poe 78). This is the narrator comparing the old man's eye to a vulture eye.
First Person Narration
When the narrator is dismembering the body, and when the police came he is very calm. He is certain that he will not get caught, but once he hears the "heart beat" of the old man he starts to get very nervous and turns himself in.
In The Tell Tale Heart the narrator states, "It was open-wide, wide open-and I grew furious as I gazed upon it. I saw it with perfect distinctness- all a dull blue, with a a hideous veil over it..." (Poe 81)This is an example of imagery because the narrator is describing what he is seeing.
The Tell Tale Heart is told in first person point of view. I know this because it is told in the narrator's eyes and he uses I and me.
