Storyboard Text

  • The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
  • Tone
  • Word Choice
  • The speaker is ill and keeps  going insane over another guy's  "vulture eye" so he kills him and then the police come and don't suspect a thing but there is a noise inside the speaker's ears so he tells them just to make it go away.
  • Imagery
  • The tone is upset because the speaker is upset when he realizes what he's done just to get rid of that vulture eye, and now the never-ending heartbeat is getting louder by the second.
  • Style
  • The word "trouble" stands out because it is bolded and contributes to the story. He was talking about the eye when he said "trouble."
  • Theme
  • "Yes! Yes, I killed him." I can picture the scene where    the guy is talking with the police and then the noise gets too loud so he tells them and tries to make it stop
  • The author used a simile when he said the body was dead as a stone.  A stone is not moving and grey, and  it was the same with the body.
  • A possible theme for this story is that everything is not as it seems. The speaker  thought it would be a good idea when he killed him, but it ended up haunting him instead.
