This may be true, but the narrator from The Tell Tale Heart is worse because his mental illness is so severe, that he loses control and kills an innocent old man. The narrator says in desperation, “If you still think me mad, you will no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body.” (Poe 3,3).

First and foremost, Lena leaving Joe for Spunk immediately sets the two men apart, further strengthening Spunk’s position as the ultimate male authority while also invoking imagery of Joe being a pathetic powerless man.

Finally, when the townspeople work Joe up enough for him to stand up for himself and attempt to murder Spunk and claim his wife, he ends up getting killed. Unlike Spunk who is big and reeks of masculinity and authority, Joe hunches and twitches nervously, making him a weaker and submissive character. Moreso, using his masculine authority, Spunk is shown as a man who takes what he wants.

Growing increasingly angry at Victor, the monster goes off and kills William and frames Justine. This is not normal human behavior. The monster, like anyone else, was going a bit insane being completely alone. This kind of loneliness can lead to poor judgment and decisions.
