TRUE! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily –how calmly I can tell you the whole story.
The Tell Tale Heart, has always been one of my favorite stories by Edgar Allan Poe. Poe has managed to capture wonderfully the whole concept of madness in a macabre way that I find very fascinating. In the story a lodger goes mad and haunted by his evil eye, kills his landlord, burying the body under the floorboards. When the police come to investigate, the narrator killer is horrified to hear his victim’s heartbeat still beating in its burial place.
