Storyboard Text

  • by Cecilia
  • The Tell Tale Heart Edgar Allan Poe
  • "For it was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye."
  • Word Choice
  • Imagery
  • "..the room was as black as pitch.."
  • "He had the eye of a vulture...[when it] fell upon me, my blood ran cold..."
  • Tone
  • "Slowly, little by little, I lifted the cloth, until a small, small light escaped from under it to fall upon — to fall upon that vulture eye! It was open — wide, wide open, and my anger increased as it looked straight at me. "
  • Style
  • First I cut off the head, then the arms and the legs. I was careful not to let a single drop of blood fall on the floor. I pulled up three of the boards that formed the floor, and put the pieces of the body there. Then I put the boards down again, carefully, so carefully that no human eye could see that they had been moved.
