Real Fears

Edgar Allan Poe- tell tale heart

The story the tell tale heart by Edgar Allan Poe is about the fear of feeling guilt how it can affect a person and reveals that quilt has a way to torment us and can change the person in a bad way.


“It grew louder --louder --louder! And still the men chatted pleasantly, and smiled. Was it possible they heard not? Almighty God! --no, no! They heard! --they suspected! --they knew! --they were making a mockery of my horror!”

“The ringing became more distinct: --it continued and became more distinct: I talked more freely to get rid of the feeling: but it continued and gained definiteness --until, at length, I found that the noise was not within my ears.”

Dream house

The fear of guilt is still relevant today and can be seen in the movie dream house when the husband of a family is left alone after his daughter and wife die he is left with so much guilt he start going crazy and imagining his family with him again p, soon enough he finds that all of it is fake and goes on to finding the actual killer and he tries to kill him.
Big picture

Personal reflection

The fear I had was about guilt and how it can make someone crazy. It can make people crazy, it makes them think differently because their thoughts are surrounded about this one thing and that one thing over powers their thoughts and actions. I personally don’t think I can relate to this fear but others can get affected by it.
