Edgar Allan Poe

The Tell-Tale Heart

Analysis- The authors tone for the tell-tale heart is mad and a little crazy because of the events and the way the events take place. The theme for this short story is no matter what the crime maybe a guilty conscience will get the best of you. I like this short story because of the amazing story it tells and how it is but together.
