Storyboard Text

  • 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
