The Tell-Tale Heart (告密的心) by Edgar Allan Poe Summary

But even yet I refrained and kept still. I scarcely breathed. I held the lantern motionless. I tried how steadily I could maintain the ray upon the eve. Meantime the hellish tattoo of the heart increased. It grew quicker and quicker, and louder and louder every instant. The old man's terror must have been extreme! It grew louder, I say, louder every moment!-do you mark me well I have told you that I am nervous: so I am. And now at the dead hour of the night, amid the dreadful silence of that old house, so strange a noise as this excited me to uncontrollable terror. Yet, for some minutes longer I refrained and stood still.

A Literary Comparison of Edgar Allan Poe ́S the Black Cat and the Tell-Tale Heart by Selina Schuster Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Paderborn (Institut fur Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar American Gothic, language: English, comment: Sprachliche und inhaltliche Analyse der Kurzgeschichten 'The Black Cat' und 'The Tell-Tale Heart' von Edgar Allan Poe mit anschliessender Gegenuberstellung und Vergleich., abstract: "And much of Madness and more of Sin And Horror the Soul to the Plot." This line taken from Edgar Allan Poe's poem 'The Conquerer Worm' perfectly describes the essential elements featured in many of Poe's poems and stories, on which I am about to write in particular. Madness and horror, sins and the 'Imp of the Perverse' - The Evil, which lies within all of us - are popular and frequently recurring motives in Poe's literary works and thereby create a mood and atmosphere quite dark and nightmarish. The reader is offered a deep glance into the abyss of the human mind and psyche. In this term paper I'm going to draw a comparison between two of Poe's short stories, which both deal with the above mentioned concepts and images and therefore, are counted to the Gothic Genre - 'The Black Cat' and 'The Tell-Tale Heart.' The main focus of my work will lie on the similarities of the storytelling structures and the speech Poe uses to convey this certain feeling of suspense, horror and thrill. I will examine which further motives and images Poe uses in this two stories and which function they fulfil. I'm going to carry out my researches primarily with the help of the books: 'Poe' by Walter Lenning, 'Poe - A Biography' by Frank T. Zumbach, 'The Cambridge Companion to Gothic Fiction' by Jerrod Hogle and 'The Fall of the House of Usher and Other Writings' by Edgar Allan Poe

The Tell-Tale Art by Christine A. Jackson Summary

Greed and guilt, near-indecipherable codes, murder plots born of madness—these motifs drive the best modern mysteries, but they are rooted in the early nineteenth century and the carefully constructed fiction of Edgar Allan Poe. Poe’s methods of storytelling and suspense remain relevant, reappearing in detective novels and on screens large and small. This work examines a wide selection of today’s mystery and thriller novels, films, television programs, and video games to explore Poe’s ongoing influence on popular entertainment. Authors such as Michael Connelly, Stieg Larsson and Dennis Lehane, television shows like The Closer and Dexter, and movies from Laura and Vertigo to Shutter Island and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo all receive attention. The popularity of Poe’s narratives in these contemporary guises is testimony to his visionary genius. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe Summary

"The Masque of the Red Death", originally published as "The Mask of the Red Death: A Fantasy", is an 1842 short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. The story follows Prince Prospero's attempts to avoid a dangerous plague, known as the Red Death, by hiding in his abbey. He, along with many other wealthy nobles, hosts a masquerade ballwithin seven rooms of the abbey, each decorated with a different color. In the midst of their revelry, a mysterious figure disguised as a Red Death victim enters and makes his way through each of the rooms. Prospero dies after confronting this stranger, whose "costume" proves to contain nothing tangible inside it; the guests also die in turn. Poe's story follows many traditions of Gothic fiction and is often analyzed as an allegory about the inevitability of death, though some critics advise against an allegorical reading. Many different interpretations have been presented, as well as attempts to identify the true nature of the titular disease. The story was first published in May 1842 in Graham's Magazineand has since been adapted in many different forms, including a 1964 film starring Vincent Price.

A sweet little cat drives a man to insanity and murder.... The grim death known as the plague roams a masquerade ball dressed in red.... A dwarf seeks his final revenge on his captors....
