"And slowly, very slowly, i made up my mind to get rid of the old man."
"enough! i admit the deed! tear up the planks! here, here! it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
The Rising Action is when the boy has stalked the old man for eight nights, and has seen the pale blue eye with film over it. Everytime he sees it his blood runs cold.
The Climax is when on the eight night the boy comes in the old man's room quietly and his lamp awakens him. He then quickly suffocates him under his mattress.
The resolution is when a neighbor of the old man heard a scream coming from the house. Two policemen come and the boy was so confident that they would not be able to see his dead body that he invited them in for tea. Then, the beating of the old man's heart was traumatizing him. The policemen started laughing and making fun of him because they could not hear it. Finally, the boy confessed that he had killed the old man, and the beating was his "hideous heart."
