Storyboard Text

  • The Tell-Tale Heart
  • The Title
  • THeme
  • Determination agonizes the main character with a strange sense of mockery.
  • "The Eye...... Not the eye"
  • STyle
  • The repetition is used in many forms through out the short story. The mentioning of the eye is repeated to emphasize its importance in the story.
  • "You cannot imagine how carefully, carefully. Finally, a single ray of light shot from out and fell full upon the vulture eye."
  • Tone
  • "And this I did for seven long nights -- but I found the eye always closed; and so it was impossible to do the work; for it was not the old man who was a problem for me, but his Evil Eye."
  • This shows the author is deeply involved in creating a feeling the eye is the mastermind and the sense of darkness is set.
  • Imagery
  • This quote appeals to the five senses because the readers are thrilled when the ticking appeals to the sound of your heart.
  • Word choice
  • "It was open -- wide, wide open -- and I grew angry as I looked at it. I saw it clearly -- all a dull blue, with a horrible veil over it that chilled my bones; but I could see nothing else of the old mans face or person. For I had directed the light exactly upon the damned spot."
  • "Talked more and with a heightened voice. Yet the sound increased -- and what could I do? It was a low, dull, quick sound like a watch makes when inside a piece of cotton."
  • This quote shows how Poe implemented key text to show how the eye made him feel.
