The Tell-tale Heart

The Tell-tale Heart

“TRUE! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily –how calmly I can tell you the whole story.”

Our first Spooky Minisode covers “The Tell-tale Heart” by Edgar Allen Poe. Is this the most transgressive Poe story? What makes it feel so icky? Why is it so frequently anthologized? Should people read this thing for fun?
