"The Tell-Tale Heart"

Edgar Allan Poe

"The Tell Tale Heart" Summary

The narrator did not care for the old mans cancerous vulture eye so then he decided to kill him. "It is nothing but the wind in the chimney-it is only a mouse crossing the floor", Edgar Allan Poe wrote on his short story 'The Tell Tale Heart' as he thinks what the old man is thinking as he cracks the door open. Or when he thinks "It is merely a cricket which has made a single chirp." The mad man wanted to kill the old man sourly because he did not like the look of his cancerous vulture eye. Then after he killed him he shouted to the police, "Villains! Dissemble no more! I admit the deed!-tear up the planks!-here,here!-it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
