The tell-tale heart

by colton barrow


The killer wanted to kill the old man. Becuase he had an evil eye. He had to wait hour before he killed him because he very cautious.But the way he killed he killed him by jumping out and giveing him a heart attack.

My Inference

He said it was an evil eye, But describe it as much more than that. it was scary plain white no color, dreadful,chilling frightening. these are all word i would explain the eye of the old man. text evidence- "He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold"


The confict is the old mans eye. so the guy is really scared and disturbed on how this eye looks , so he is nice to him for a whole week the last day he opened the door and sat there. he could not get over how evil his eye look so he turned to evil himself by killing the old man


there were not many characters. There were only the killer of the old man. the old man with the evil eye that the guy killed. and the police at the end of the story that was asking him question about the screaming.


Theme of the story is that you need to complepe what you set out to do.
