Reviews of “The Tell-Tale Heart” (1843) and related work

“The Tell-Tale Heart” (1843Text)

Edgar Allan Poe (writer).

Read in 2022.

This is not even the Todorovian uncanny, nor literary modernism, but a clearly signalled, highly emotive, unreliable narrator.

References here: “The Black Cat” (1843), “The Imp of the Perverse” (1845).

Not a lot of animation happening here, and no surprises beyond some nicely timed cuts.
