However, her perseverance only extends to her plans for death. She furthers this by describing her "whorish heart". Her usage of "whorish" signifies frequent thoughts of death as a desirable outcome, though she still views it as an imperfect solution.

The readers see him as a victim and sympathize for his actions, including killing the elderly Grandmother. Although he is an awful person, because he is a male character, it is acceptable for him to have issues, but it is not acceptable for a woman to have any sort of issue.

On a dark, misty night a Quill moves from page to page in a leather laced notebook. Paragraph after paragraph, soon all the golden brown pages will be full and a story will be born. One of the stories born was “The Tell-Tale Heart”. This story was written by Edgar Allan Poe and tells about a narrator who kills an old man because of his “Evil Eye,” the narrator says it looks like a vulture's eye because of its pale-blueish complexion. The Narrator in Poe’s “The Tell Tale Heart” is sane because he feels extreme guilt, is very cautious of how he did his task (not even a drop of blood was left behind), and he was very wise, Someone that is insane can’t feel guilt because they are too crazy to realize anything.
The story “Tell- Tale Heart” by Edgar Allen Poe, there are many reasons that the killer could be proved that this was a premeditated murder. Some of these reasons that make this a premeditated murder are he planned the murder, he also dismantled the man’s body and hid it, he watched the man in his sleep, and lastly he admitted the nasty deed. The first reason that the man could be proved that he is guilty is that he planned the murder and waited eight long nights before he kill the innocent old man. The reason that this would be a part of premeditated murder is because the killer knew what he he wanted to do and when he was going to do it. This will refute the opposition because it was planned and when you plann the murder it is a premeditated

The Tell Tale Heart The killer in the short story “Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allen Poe. What I think about the killer in the “Tell Tale Heart” is he is guilty for murdering the old man, because the old man did not do nothing to the killer Page 145. He broke into his home around 12 o'clock around night time but he never touched anything of the old man's belongings. The killer is responsible for the cops, and the way he's acting to the case here.
