Hearken! and observe how healthily-how calmly I can tell you the whole story,” (Poe 121). This is when the ... ... middle of paper ... ...a committed a murder and its wrong. The way the protagonist comfortably talks of the old man’s murder clearly shows his insanity in the story. The narrator started the story by protesting his sanity, but in the end, it is evident that, he is truly insane through his actions.
Edgar Allan Poe, the creator of one of the most notorious short stories in gothic writing, “Tell-Tale Heart” develops a character that is struggling with schizophrenia and commits a murder. Although there is no concrete reason to why Poe wrote the short story, it is theorized that he wrote it due to the struggles he had in his life, he wanted to reflect the evil inside a human spirit. It is also theorized by Matthey Bynum “The average man tended to suspect deception in defense pleas of insanity, and newspapers often fanned these feelings. Thus by the time Poe wrote 'The Tell-Tale Heart', such trials were major events.” Because of the characters thoughts and actions, many scholars, like Tanfer Tunc, Susan Amper, Matthey Bynum (among others), have analyzed the character and his possible mental illness and case of schizophrenia. “The Tell-Tale Heart” written in 1843 is a story that is narrated by a crazed man.
