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.

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.

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.

It is still a good reason but not the most important one.
