In the story The Tell-Tale Heart the man didn't like the old man because there was something about him. The thing the man didn't like was his eye. He didn't like his eye because he had the eye of a vulture. In the story on page 89 paragraph 2 it said that "I loved the man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire. I think It was his eye! Yes,it was this! He had the eye of a vulture."
In "The Tell-Tale Heart" the man kills the old man because of his eye. He wanted to get rid of the old mans eye. He felt nervous and weird when the eye fell upon him. In the story on page 89 paragraph 2 it said that "Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees very gradually I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever."
I think the theme for the story is don't judge some by their appearance because you don't know how they really are. I think you should met or get to know them well before you judge someone. In the story "The Tell-Tale Heart the man didn't like the old man because of the way he looked. They man didn't like the old mans eye because he had the eye of the vulture. The man decideds to take the mans life because of his eye. The man should of known first why the mans eye looked like that. He should of asked the man why his eye was like that. That's why you shouldn't judge some based on their appearance.
