Storyboard Description

The theme of The Tell-Tale Heart is to not commit a crime because your guilty conscience may expose you. I say this because, in paragraph 18, it states, " Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed!- tear up the planks! -here, here!- it is the beating of his hideous heart!" This shows that the man was insane, and he confessed to the police that he killed the old man.
