我坚信埃德加·艾伦·坡的《一颗叙述者的心》中的看守人/叙述者是疯了，因为他杀死了他正在照顾的老人。叙述者有一点错误的一个原因是，他对策划和执行谋杀感到非常自豪。7天7夜，他会去老人的房间，花一个小时将头探进房间，暗中监视他。事情办完后不久警察就来了，讲述者兴高采烈地领着他们参观房子，说那个老人没死。“一个疯子会有这样的智慧吗?”(一颗讲故事的心)我相信疯子可以，因为没有一个神志清醒的人会把警察带到离尸体几英寸远的地方。看门人很生气，因为他在故事中开始听到声音。在他把老人的尸体藏起来之后，看门人开始觉得自己听到了老人的心跳越来越响。“我头痛，我觉得耳朵里有一种嗡嗡的声音。但他们仍然坐着，仍然聊天。 The ringing became more distinct : I talked more freely to get rid of the feeling: but it continued and gained definitiveness” (A Tell Tale Heart) The guilt caused him to hear voices and become more insane than before, and also it caused him to confess- something a sane person would not do. Lastly, the caretaker killed the old man because he was disliked the look of the old, filmed over, pale blue eye. Even though old man never did anything that would offend the caretaker, but he killed him anyway. “I love the old man. He never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire. I think it was his eye! yes it was!” (A Tell Tale Heart) I think it is pycho to kill someone you like just because you don’t like their face! The narrator/caretaker in A Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe is insane because he is responsible for the murder of his caretakee. He takes pride in the murder, hears voices after the murder, and repeatedly says he’s sane.
