the story of the tell tale heart is one of pure madness.........but i loved it!!simply put,the character has a master with a "vulture's eye"(its actually just some skin covering it"so he goess mad,kills the guy chops his corpse up and hides it in the floor.when the cops arrive(a neighbor heard the old guy scream)the character tries to stay calm but goes insane and "hears" the old mans heart thumping under the floor boards.In turn he collapses and confesis the whole gory truth to the cops...the end.hey can you help me?i'm doing a paper on him as well and i need an analysis or critisizm of all his works.ex. how he uses supernatural"forces in his stories.......
