LiteraryAnalysis The tell tale heart

Have you ever wondered why the tell tale heart was so famous? Like the story "Frankenstein" the theme was to not judge a book by its cover. They both had people judging someone based on their looks. The author (Edgar Allan Poe) wanted people to understand the meaning so that people won't judge pepode based on their looks. Killing someone based on their looks is cruel and disgusting.

I chose the tell tale heart. The tell tale heart is kinda like the story Frankenstein just like it the theme was to not judge a book by its cover. The tell tale heart had a caretaker that didn't like his carers appearance . His carer in the words of the caretaker "had an eye of an vulture" (Poe 89). He judged him by how he looks and couldn't take it so her murdered him. The caretaker felt so bad that he confessed to the police.

In the tell tale heart there was a caretaker that was disgusted by his carer because of his eye. He used the words "He had the eye of an vulture". The carer went into his room and murdered him just because he didn't like his eye. The caretaker got so nervous when the police came to ask questions.He imagined the heartbeat of the carer beating loudly. It made him feel like they could hear and they knew he murderedhim. He got so nervous , he confessed to them.

He judged his carer because he had a huge eyeball. He thought it wasn't normal. "Eye of a vulture," he said , (Poe , 89). He didn't like it so much that he killed him. In regretting his actions he said , "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! Tear up the planks! Here, here!" (Poe 90)

The theme like said in the beginning was to not judge a book by its cover. As you were told in the book, he didn't listen to that. He didn't like the looks of his carer so he decided to murder him. In the end he regretted his decision and confessed that he committed the crime and showed them where he put the body. Thus concluding the theme and how it related to it
