The narrator receives a letter from Roderick Usher.
"-a letter from him-which, in its wildly importunate nature, had admitted of no other than a personal reply." page 14
The narrator travels to Usher's house and describes it very precisely.
"Upon the bleak walls- upon the vacant eyelike windows-upon a few rank sedges-and upon a few white trunks of decayed trees-with a utter depression of soul." Page 14
"Perhaps the eye of a scrutinizing observer might have discovered a barely perceptible fissure." page 16
The narrator notices a great big fissure from the roof down the wall in a zigzag direction
The narrator and Usher think Madeline Usher died
"... a strictly cataleptic character, the mockery of a faint blush upon the bosom..." page 24
Madeline was entombed alive, violently got out and Usher died of fear
"There was blood upon her white robes, and the evidence of some bitter struggle upon every portion of her emaciated frame." page 30
When Usher and Madeline died the house fell to the ground
"- and the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently over the fragments of the House of Usher." page 30
