As a seasoned narrator he can anticipate the likely reaction of his listeners to such improbable story. The narrator prefaces his story as “it was some years ago that this happened. It had always mystified me”. Then he goes on to narrate with apparent matter-of-factness of the story.
Nonetheless, there are a few points in which the reader should take note of, particularly notes on the story while looking through a historical and philosophical lense, which are the best lenses to examine the story.

Countless literary critics have written about Hamlet’s insanity throughout the years. Though many may believe Hamlet had gone mad, Hamlet is, in fact, not insane but rather going through an extremely tough time in his life and experiencing regular human emotion. In "Character Analysis of Hamlet: Psychological Disorders." by the renowned literary critic, Ivana
As Phillip K. Dick had once said, “Strange how paranoia can link up with reality now and then.” This quote tells one that the paranoia of a person can change how everything can be perceived. Since the paranoia a person has can cause them to think in absurd ways and react differently to what happens around them, they are essentially using their paranoid mind to change their perception of reality. In Ken Kesey’s One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest and J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, paranoia and its effects become prevalent themes in each of the novels. The narrators, Chief Bromden in Kesey’s novel, and Holden Caulfield in Salinger’s tale, are shown to be affected by their paranoia frequently throughout each story.
Have you ever been accused of being insane? Chances are you may have. Those that are reading this are probably mostly all sane. In the short story "The Tell-Tale Heart" the narrator has reasoning for his actions. Many people think the way the same way that I do, they believe that the narrator is insane.
Edgar Allen Poe’s “the tell–tale heart” is a better example of insanity because he uses comparison, questioning, and long pauses in the story to emphasize the insanity of the narrator. To begin with Edgar Allen Poe uses comparison to emphasize the narrator’s insanity by comparing the narrator’s actions or feelings to the things that normally insane people would use. The text states “His eye was like the eye of a vulture these of those terrible birds. ”(Poe 2).
In "The Tell Tale Heart", The narrater is indeed mentally insane. The killer states, "It's impossible to say how the idea first entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me day and night. " By the narrator saying "It's impossibel to say how the idea first entered my brain", it tells us that something in his mind just triggered him to want to kill the old man. He didnt even have a reason too kill him other than the fact the old mans eye bothered him. He also states that "It haunted me day and night."
The man accused of murder has confessed to the crime and led the police straight to the mutilated body of his victim. On the night of murder, the narrator killed the old man by suppressing him with a bed and suffocating him to death. He was vexed by the old man’s “evil eye” which motivated the narrator to murder the old man. In spite of the evidence proving that the murderer is insane, he is clearly sane and should be accused guilty. Primarily, the murderer explained the process of murder, he was describing all the little details that an insane person would not have remembered.
In the dictionary the word insanity means,”In state of mind that prevents normal precipitation behavior,or social interaction. In the story the man was insane. Throughout the whole story he is trying to kill a old man because of his creepy eye. In the Tail Tale Heart by Edger Allan Poe use literary devices such as the setting,the mood,and last but not least the imagery. In this essay I will tell the reader why it is important.
