Well, the cause and effect relationship between Edgar Allan Poes “The Tell-Tale Heart” and W.W. Jacobs “The Monkeys Paw” that creates suspense is there is evil in both stories. In Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart,” the man is going crazy over the old man’s pale, milky, blue eye. So, the man goes crazy over this eye and ends up killing the old man.

There are times in life where people do commit a small mistake, or a huge crime, but what really matters is if one will listen to their conscience. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the main character lives with an old man who has an eye that “resembled that of a vulture--a pale blue eye, with a film over it.” The story revolves around the main character’s obsession over the eye, and how he got rid of it-- by murdering the old man. Towards the end of the story, the young man confesses to the police about his insane stunt after they searched his house. In “The Tell-Tale Heart,” Edgar Allan Poe focused on having the reader know more than the secondary character, using description, and using a first-person narrator, to build suspense.

For seven days just at midnight the servant would take an hour to creep in and shin a thin ray of light on the old man’s eye. Then on the 8th night the old man woke up and was frightened by the light, but the servant stood completely still and when he thought that old man went back to sleep the servant suffocated him with the sheet.

The narrator is shattered by his decision years later. This makes the reader ponder about what is the right thing to do given the circumstances. The author paints a gruesome image of a dead man crushed to death. He gives a chilling description of a smiling corpse with an untimely death.
1. In the book, All Quiet On The Western Front, written by Erich Maria Remarque, Paul realizes that, at this point in time, he either has to kill or be killed, he chooses to kill. Unwilling to die without a fight, "We have lost all feeling for one another. We can hardly control control ourselves when our glance lights on the form of some other man. We are insensible, dead men, who through some trick, some dreadful magic, are still able to run and to kill" (116).
The case of Kenneth Parks is explained, since he was a man who murdered his mother-in-law and attempted to murder his father-in-law all while he was sleepwalking. Eagleman begs the question of whether it was Parks fault, and if it was not, then is if all criminals are not faulted for committing a crime when they have a mental disorder. He asks how far the scale can go to forgive a person of their crimes, a main theme of his writing. The topic is interesting, since gunman that fire away at others because of a tumor in their amygdala, for example, may only have done what they did in the heat of the moment.

Tell-Tale Heart shouldn’t be read in middle school because it teaches us how to murder people. On page 93 its talks about him replacing the floor boards so cleverly from the police but he then confesses that he killed the old man and put him under the floorboards.
