The Tell-Tale Heart Pdf
“The Tell-Tale Heart” is a short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1843. It is relayed by an unnamed narrator who endeavors to convince the reader of his sanity while simultaneously describing a murder he committed. The victim was an old man with a filmy “vulture-eye”, as the narrator calls it. The narrator emphasizes the careful calculation of the murder, and he hides the body by dismembering it and hiding it under the floorboards. Ultimately, the narrator’s feelings of guilt, or a mental disturbance, result in him hearing a thumping sound, which he interprets as the dead man’s beating heart.
The Tell-Tale Heart Summary
“The Tell-Tale Heart” is a first-person narrative of an unnamed narrator, who insists he is sane but is suffering from a disease (nervousness) which causes “over-acuteness of the senses”. Due to the ambiguity surrounding the identity of the story’s narrator, the narrator’s is gender uncertain. The old man with whom the narrator lives have a clouded, pale, blue “vulture-like” eye, which distresses the narrator so much that they plot to murder the old man, despite also insisting that they love the old man. The narrator insists that their careful precision in committing the murder proves that the narrator cannot possibly be insane. For seven nights, the narrator opens the door of the old man’s room in order to shine a sliver of light onto the “evil eye”. However, the old man’s vulture-eye is always closed, making it impossible to “do the work”.
