Tell-Tale Heart thoughts...
I really enjoy this piece by Poe, although it is one of his most popular and most read, I feel that it is for good reason. I love the way he manages to capture the mind of the killer so well. You keep asking yourself is he really insane or just very disturbed by the vulture like eye. Its kinda strange how his rationalizations almost make sense to the reader at times. I feel almost like the eye that he describes begins to even disturb me. The tale is told in such an erie and haunting way that makes it seem so realistic.
I love the scene when he described how the heart begins to beat under the floor boards. He managed to capture the guilt the narrator experiences in the most terrifying capacity. This is the reason why I decided to do my poem collage on this story. I also wanted to capture a bit of the narrators experience visually, since the story is told in such a disturbing but yet fixating way. You can see my collage here. I hope others find that this collage manages to capture some of the aspects of this tale.
