Kosta Leontarakis ENWR 106 College Writing II: Writing and Literary Study Prof. L. DiFabio 2/26/08 Submitted 2/29/08 Tell Tale Heart Response TRUE! --Very, very nervous --dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? (Poe) In the previous sentence, Poe is obviously not talking about the emotion of being mad, as in angry. He is referring to the word “mad” as in the quality or condition of being insane (Dictionary.com). About three years ago, I saw this re-created as a short play at the Paper Mill Playhouse. This opening line literally gave me chills as the dark and eerie set unfolded. This is by far my favorite piece of literature from Poe. In my opinion, it is an overall masterpiece. Never have I felt this way after reading a poem in my entire life. The way Poe describes everything is uncanny and unprecedented. His imagery and his unique word selection make this seem so real. My favorite parts of the poem were definitely the actual murder scene after the brilliant description of the eye, and the end with the beating heart.
