"For his gold i had no desire.I think it was his eye ! yes, it was this!He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it.
Good day sir!
"In an instant I draggfed him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him ".
In this small section of the story known as the exposition, it is revealed to the readers that the narrator is crazy. Also the narrator rants others comments on his mental and physical illness, in this rant he goes as far to say that he he has "acute" hearing.
"There entered three men who introduced themselves,with perfect suavity,as the officers of the police."
Everything good here? We got reports of loud noise.
In this section known as the rising action, the narrator has become obsessed with the old man's eye and even went as far as to say, he has a desire for it.
Ok! I did it I killed the old man. "Villians!' I shrieked,'dissemble no more! I admit to the deed!' --tear up the planks! Here,Here!"
The narrator commits the evil deed of murder and kills the old man to silence him and get rid of the which he was so petulant over.
