The Tell- Tale Heart

The best example of feeling is on line 47; page 90 it says " For it was not the old man who vexed me it was the evil eye. " This is the best feeling because it was't the old man who made the narrator want to kill him it was the old mans evil eye.

Another example of feeling is on line 138; page 93 " His eye would trouble me no more. " The Narrator killed the old man and his evil eye would not bother the Narrator no more.

A good example of Anxiety or Fear is on page 92; line 106 " But even yet I refrained and kept still. I scarcely breathed. I held the lantern motionless. I tried how steadily i could maintain the ray upon the eye. " This is a good example because the Narrator is afraid of the pale blue eye.

The vulture eye; The pale blue eye.

An example of action is on page 90 ; line 23. " And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it—oh, so gently! And then, when I had made an opening sufficient for my head, I put in a dark lantern, all closed, closed, so that no light shone out, and then I thrust in my head. " The Narrator is watching the old man sleep for seven days and eighth nights.

The summary: The narrator wanted the old mans evil eye, so the narrator went into the old mans room for 7 nights and watched him sleep. Soon the narrator killed the old man and hid the body. The police came and the narrator kept clam until he heard the old mans heart beat and went crazy.
