Literary analysis "The tell-TaLe heart by edagr allen poe

One of the major themes in “The Tell-Tale Heart” is the effects of guilt or conscience and the descent into madness. In the story, the narrator's sanity is definitely in question. He kills the old man because of his “evil eye” but then feels guilty about it. The author's message is that if you did something wrong you will start to fell quilts and as you get more quilts you will start to confess.
