  • Climax
  • hahahah
  • The narrator was kind for a whole week, (meanwhile he was having internal conflict of what he was planning.) He would sneak into the old mans room at 12 every night with a lantern. The narrator would open the lantern to see if the old mans "vulture eye" was open. The narrator was death stalking the old man, this would be personified. The old mans "vulture eye" is why the narrator wants to kill him. In the morning the narrator would ask the old man how he slept.
  • Falling Action
  • I have to do this fast before anyone arrives...
  • On the 8th night of the narrator going into the old mans room, the narrator awakes the old man and continues into the room. Them there is a 1 hour stand off, (narrator in the room, old man sitting up in the bed). The narrator opens the lantern and sees that the old mans "vulture eye" is open. The narrator then hears a low, dull, quick sound and thinks its the old mans heart beat. The narrator thinks the heart beat is getting louder but little does he know its his own anxiety.
  • Resolution
  • After he sees the old mans "vulture eye" on the 8th night he feels the need to kill him. The climax... the narrator grabs the mattress and suffocates the old man. Foreshadowing the dead hour of the night, midnight.
  • *shriek*
  • The narrator brings the body into the bathroom and dismembers the body in the bathtub. Where is he going to put the body parts? He hides the body under the floorboards. The old man shrieked and the neighbor heard it. When the police arrive they search and the narrator invites them in to sit... The narrator sits on top on the floor boards where the body was put. The narrator hears the "old mans" heart beat, even though its the suspense of his own anxiety.
  • The narrator flips out as the sound gets louder, the symbolism is a low, dull, quick sound. The narrator confesses to the police that he murdered the old man because the narrator couldn't stand the sound of the heart beat, which was his own guilt...
  • Sir, you're under arrest...
