  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • This scene is about the narrator and the 7 nights, when he watches the old man sleep, and the narrator is trying to convinve the audienece that he is not crazy. "And every night at midnight I turn the latch of his door and open it so gently!" " Very deadfully nervous I had been and am; but why would you say that I am mad?"
  • Falling Action
  • Knock, Knock!
  • This scene is about how the narrator would peak into the old man's room and watch him sleep. While the old man slept Poe would turn on a lantern and point it to the old man's vulture eye. " And then, when my head was well in the room, I undid the lantern and cautiously- oh, so cautiously--(for the higes creaked)-- I undid it so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye."
  • Resolution
  • Hello, officers what are you guys doing here?
  • Well, the neighbors have called and said that they heard someone screaming.
  • This scene takes place on the eighth night when the Poe accidently wakes up the old man, so then he decides do sufficate the old man with the mattress. After the old man was not breathing Poe decided to cut him into pieces and them to put him under the floors. " First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs."
  • Unreliable Narrator
  • This is the scene where the narrator has finished his job of putting all the body parts of the old man under the floors, and then he hears a knock on the door. " I then took three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings."
  • Huh??
  • This is the scene where the narrator where the narrator feels too much guilt so he breaks down with the officers and confesses that he killed the old man, and then he takes them where the old man's body parts are at. " I admit the deed!--tear up the planks! here, here!-- It's the beating of his hideous heart!"
  • The narrator of the story would be unreliable in the scene where he said he can hear somethings form Hell and Heaven and still thinks that he is not crazy. " I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How then am I mad?"
