Storyboard Text

  • To think that there I was, opening the door, little by little, and he not even to dream of my secret deeds or thoughts.
  • First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs.
  • Exposition:  this taking place in the 1843 in the old mans house and this is being written in jail from the man who did the deed.
  • I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings. I then replaced the boards so cleverly, so cunningly, that no human eye --not even his --could have detected any thing wrong. 
  • Rising Actions: in this scene the man has come into the house and is now watching him at 12 o'clock for 8 nights and then.
  • "Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
  • Climax: what is happening in this scene is the man killing the old man 
  • Falling Action: in this scene the man has cut up the body and is now putting the body parts under the floor boards with relief.
  • Falling Action: In this scene the police showed up and the man has confidence but then he is starting to get scared and nervous.
  • Resolution: The man got arrested for killing the man after revealing the body and then the police take him in to jail.
