Madness vs sanity in poe HELP!greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread
I need to describe the use of madness vs sanity in "The Tell Tale Heart" and "The Raven".

It sounds like you are angling for the point of view from which the story is told and the narrator's reliability (his sanity v. insanity). Check out the Poe Decoder at http://www.poedecoder.com/ for some more help. If you need some questions to get you jump started on 'point of view,' I can copy them from the handout I give to my students and paste them into an email. Write me privately if you want them.
