This paper explains that Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" succeeds because it is a scary story. The author points out that Poe utilizes the narrator's interior monologue in this story as an effective tool to provide a glimpse into this man's whose deteriorating sanity is an excellent example of how people can deceive themselves--especially in their own minds. The paper relates that the old man's beating heart is present only in the narrator's mind and may very well be the sound of his own heart pounding away in his chest after he has just completed his cruel act.
