Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • True!- nervous- very, very dreadful nervous I had been and am; but why will you say I am mad?
  • Conflict
  • I think it was his eye! yes, it was this! One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture- a pale blue eye, with a film over it.
  • Rising Action
  • The narrator is trying to persuade the reader that he isn't insane, even though he is extremely nervous and he is asking the reader why they would think that he is mad.
  • Rising Action
  • The conflict is an internal conflict between the narrator and his obsession over the old man's eye.
  • Climax
  • tick, tock,  tick, tock . . .
  • While the old man was sleeping, the narrator came into the room and woke the old man up. Both of the men were staying in the same position, the old man sitting in fright, while the narrator standing with a smirk on his face.
  • Resolution
  • The narrator quickly pushed the old man to the floor and threw the mattress over him. Doing that, he killed the elder, just because of his vulture like eye.
  • The narrator was "hearing" the heart beat of the dead old man. After a while, he couldn't take it any longer, so he confessed to the police.
  • The police arrest the narrator for murder, he will be taken into prison and the old man's body will be taken for a funeral.
