The Madman qualities the resolution

"The old man was dead. I removed the bed and examined the corpse. Yes, he was stone, stone dead. I placed my hand upon the heart and held it there many minutes. There was no pulsation. He was stone dead. His eye would trouble me no more"


the old man's heart. It increased my fury, as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage.fears had been ever since growing upon him. He had been trying to fancy them causeless, but could not. He had been saying to himself --"It is nothing but the wind in the chimney --it is only a mouse crossing the floor," or "It is merely a cricket which has made a single chirp."


The Madman theme is murder because he wants to kill the Glass eye man because the glass eye bothers him, it makes him unconferbel or he fears it.


The Glass eye man story theme is scared because he wakes up in the middle of the night that scares him vary much that keeps him wondering what is in his room.
