In the story it is mostly about a guy taking care of an old man. Also this old man has this volcure eye.That gives this guy the curage to kill this poor old man.
Sorry not sorry hehe!
The Narrator of the story try's to prove his sanity by telling the reader how cautiously he planed the murder. And planned the eight nights out of how he is going to kill the old man. At 12 he went to go check on the old man. He opens the lantern to see if the old mans eye opens. the narrator asked the old man how he slept.
On the eight night, the narrator wakes the old man by slipping his finger on the lantern. The old man's eye opens and this gives the narrator the courage he needs to commit the murder. The sound the narrator is starting to hear is a low ,dull, quick sound, as it gets louder and louder (symbolizes the narrator's anxiety increasing). He thinks that he can hear the old man's heartbeat, but it is his own heartbeat. The narrator becomes anxious that the sound may be heard by a neighbor.
I did it I killed the old man !!
The narrator uses the ''dead hour of the night'' to show foreshadowing, On the eight night the narrator kills the old man by suffocating him with the mattress.
After he dismembers the body in the bath tub, he washes the bath tub and any remaining blood away. Then he hides the body underneath the floor boards of the room of where we was killed. After the police arrive, the old man invites them into the house. The police search the house and they do not find anything. They sit right above where the old man's body parts were placed underneath the floorboards. The Narrator begins to hear a low, dull, quick sound which increases his anxiety.
The noise drove his anxiety to the point that he could not help but confess to murdering the old man. The narrator is experiencing internal conflict when he faces the guilt of comitting the murder of the old man.
