Storyboard Description

by Edgar Allen Poe

Storyboard Text

  • Alone in a corner of the street sat an apartment. "To all appearance it had been temporarily and very lately abandoned."
  • Inside this apartment,  "decorations were rich, yet tattered and antique". The walls were also decorated with  "spirited modern paintings".
  • There was a strange man in the attic, looking around. He found a passage on a picture known as "The Oval Portrait". The man started reading.
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • In the story, the man read of a "maiden of the rarest beauty" who married a passionate, artistic painter.
  • The maiden only hated her husband's art because it was said to be her "rival".
  • The maiden dreaded only the pallet and brushes. She also hated the other "untoward instruments" because it deprived her of facial expression of her true love.
