Concisely Chaotic
Horror or Gothic Fiction
"The old man was dead. I removed the bed and examined the corpse. Yes, he was stone, stone dead. I placed my hand upon the heart [...]. There was no pulsation. His eye would trouble me no more. [...] First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs."
"Dreadfully Nervous"
"TRUE: NERVOUS-very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am! but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses--not destroyed--not dulled them."

"His room was as black as pitch with the thick darkness (for the shutters were close fastened, through fear of robbers)."
The Narrator
"I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? "
The Old Man
A Neighbour
"And now a new anxiety seized me; the sound would be heard by a neighbour!"
The Three Policemen
"The officers were satisfied.
My manner had convinced them.
I was singularly at ease."
"(...) dissemble no more! I admit the deed!"
"I felt that I must scream or die!"
