Poe's Connection to Tell Tale Heart

Michael Rheinschmidt

Connection #4

Edgar thought he heard the heart beating but it was just him feeling guilty so he told the police what he had done because he could not go on in life feeling guilt just like when his wife died in his real life he started drinking because he had nothing he felt he couldn't move on.

Connection #5

This is one of his darkest stories he wrote. At this time in his real life his life was pretty dark also. He has lost family and he doesn't have any money.
