Storyboard Text

  • So you see he would have been a very profound old man, indeed, to suspect that every night, just at twelve, I looked in upon him while he slept.
  • Exposition
  • I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern, when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening, and the old man sprang up in bed, crying out--
  • Rising Action
  • "Who's there?"
  • With a loud yell, I threw open the lantern and leaped into the room. He shrieked once--once only. In an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him.
  • Climax
  • The night waned, and I worked hastily, but in silence. First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs.
  • Climax
  • There three entered three men, who introduced themselves, with perfect suavity, as officers of the police.
  • Falling Action
  • Anything was more tolerable than t his derision! I could bear those smiles no longer! I felt that I must scream or die! and now --again! hark! louder! louder! louder!
  • "Villains! dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
  • Resolution
