Tell Tale Heart: Insane or Sane?
Transcript of Tell Tale Heart: Insane or Sane?
"You should have seen how wisely proceeded-with what caution-with what foresight-with what dissimulation I went to work!"
How could he be so confident? Insane people are generally unsure about what they are doing. This is a strong part of why he is not insane.
"The night waned, and I worked hastily, but in silence. First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs."
Do you hear the details he has given to us??? There is no way he could be insane! Most insane people forget things easily and this shows you the opposite of that.
"I then replaced the boards so cleverly, so cunningly, that no human eye --not even his --could have detected any thing wrong. There was nothing to wash out --no stain of any kind --no blood-spot whatever. I had been too wary for that."
The man would not have been able to cleverly place the body parts in a hidden spot. He talks so believable and convincing. He knew what he was doing the entire time and truly meant to kill the old man.
"I smiled, --for what had I to fear? I bade the gentlemen welcome. The shriek, I said, was my own in a dream. The old man, I mentioned, was absent in the country. I took my visitors all over the house."
The man was very much relaxed and was able to make up believable lies.
He talks like a genius and knows where and what he was doing. He would not have been able to do if he was insane.
"The officers were satisfied. My manner had convinced them. I was singularly at ease. They sat, and while I answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things."
This is the last part of my evidence and a convincing one. The man wouldn't have been able to convince the officers that nothing had happened.He also wouldn't have been able to sit and chat with them at ease (so he is defiantly sane).
The man is clearly sane and we are going to give you the strong evidence why!
After all the evidence we have given you what do you think? If you believe me good. If you still don't believe me; Why would he have been able to do many sane things? This man should not be sent to a penitentiary but instead should be sentenced to death for his actions.
