"The Cask of Amontillado" and "The Tell Tale Heart" are two very excellent works that were written by one of the greatest writers of all time. Both of these tales involve a psychotic indvidual becoming paranoid and killing a close companion. The plans of which the perpitradors in these stories carry out are very well planned and set ahead of time. It is not at all rare for the perspective or P.O.V. of a psychopath to be observed in the story. The killer is often the narrator. Edgar Allan Poe will live forever!!!! Gwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!
