  • "The Tell Tale Heart" Author: Edgar Allan Poe By: Emmanuel Mangru Date: 11/19/17
  • The narrator here is introduced and is making his way up the stairs. He claims he is not insane as he tries to explain it, but deep down he's a madman! He is targeting the old man who has a vulture eye and wants to sneak up on him. So he harkens to his footsteps trying to be quiet.
  • In this scenario, the old man is asleep while the mad man is stalking and peeking through his room in the middle of the night.
  • The madman then vehemently grabs the old man and throws him on the ground and murders him because of his vulture eye that troubles him.
  • The madman decapitates the old mans head, arms, and legs. Then, with sagacity he opens up the floorboards and throws his deceased body down there.
  • The police walk in through the house and question the mad man of some sort of shriek coming from this house. The madman then gives them his supposition.
  • No sir! That shriek was my own. (Smiling innocently)
  • We've got complaints from the neighborhood about an old man shriek and we thought we'd asked you if you know anything in relation!?
  • The madman commits to his crime and eventually admits what he did was wrong. He thinks the police suspected, and made a derision of his horror.
  • OKAY, OKAY IT WAS ME. I MURDERED THE OLD MAN. He's down in the floorboards!!
