Edgar Allan Poe made sure the reader knew more than the secondary character in his short story to build suspense. For the entire week before he murdered the old man, the main character crept into his bedroom every night, and observed the man while he slept. “I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern, when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening, and the old man sprang up in the bed… He was still sitting up in the bed, listening;--just as I have done, night after night, hearkening to the death watches in the wall.” From the beginning, the audience knew the man would be murdered, and the suspense built from this knowledge. Since the old man was not aware of the devious plan of his housemate, the readers felt inclined to warn
Friar John's non fulfillment to deliver the letter leads Romeo to believe the news he had been told by Balthasar. Friar John's shortfall occurs earlier in Act five, when he returns to Friar Lawrence's shrine to inform him of the horrible news. Friar John states “Suspecting that we were both in a house / Where the infectious pestilence did reign, / Sealed up the doors and would not let us forth. / so that my speed to Mantua there was stayed.” (5.2.9-12). Friar John explains how he took a visit to another Friar who was supposedly infected with the plague and the town's health officials suspected the sickness and locked them in the house so he was unable to deliver the letter.
In plotting the death of the old man, the narrator would spy on him for seven nights in a row.

But on the eight night, when he entered the old man 's room, he is described to have, “Never before that night had I felt the extent of my own powers.” (Poe “Tell-Tale Heart” 3) The word choices of the narrator is not a mistake. This power is shown when the narrator began to enter the old man 's room. While entering the old man heard him and called to him.
The servant loved the old man but could not take his eye, so one day he decided that he would kill the old man. 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.

The ghost telling Hamlet about his father being murdered changes the way he thinks about his own life. He says, “To die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream…” Hamlet is meaning that being dead is just a big dream and anyone who is scared to end their life is a coward. Claudius thinks that Hamlet has gotten to out of control so
One example of this in the lantern depicted in the story. The narrator uses the lantern as a tool for his murder of the old man, and describes how he enters the man’s room for a week, every night, and, “[the narrator] undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye,” (Poe 1). He uses this lantern to see the Evil Eye, and ultimately uses it as a method of startling the old man, on the night that the narrator murders him. The lantern can be seen as a symbol for positive forces -- or in some cases, literal light -- used in negative fashions. The narrator uses light to commit a dark atrocity.
Well, you may be shocked by the real explanation of manslayer´s aim – it was the old man´s eye! Yes, it sounds weird but as his description of the eye and his reaction on it is unusual: "I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this! He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it.

Tell-Tale Heart is a book consisting on the narrator.The narrator had seen an old man that had a weird eye.The narrator did not like his eye the it looked at the narrator.So at the end of the story the narrator killed the poor old man.Dont you understand your child is reading violent books in middle school.So i strongly believe Tell-Tell heart is inappropriate for middle schoolers. The reason why i think it is important for the parents to know what their child is reading is because the parents wouldnt want their child or children to read books like that.For example if you look on the news an your child waas on tv and it said they had murdered someone cause that person had look at them.So see thats why i think it is inappropriate. I think

He observes the old man for seven days and plans every minute detail which he needs to consider before killing him.

The narrator is found to shine a narrow beam of light through the lantern into the old man’s deadly eye every day for a whole week before finally killing him.
