Similarities between Usher (1838) and Tell-Tale Heart (1843)
Diseased or insane mind linked to morbidly acute senses
Usher – enhanced hearing (sister in tomb)/taste/sight
Heart – enhanced hearing (heart beat)
Hidden crime
Usher – buried sister alive, incent (marrying in family for generations, p. 86)
Heart – murder
Intensification
Descending helix – visual metaphor that encapsulates how Poe’s stories often
rise in intensity to a big climax
Pulls reader into the piece
Usher – storm (p. 97), Mad Trist
Repetition of “I”
First person
You almost become the narrator
Unsettling
Repetition as intensification
Usher – twins, narrator and Roderick (doubling in reactions, emotions),
Roderick’s painting (p. 91 – 92) and Madeline’s vault, Roderick’s song (song
about structure/its fall and Roderick himself), house is reflected in tarn, word
“house” (structure and family), repeating words and sentences (especially
Roderick)
Madness in Usher
Incent, inbreeding (depleted bloodline, doubling)
Environment/ideas/logic (reflection of madness in the house or the cause?)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
