Line(s) of the Day The Tell-Tale Heart

“Now this is the point. You fancy me a mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded…”

The utterly wonderfully short story The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe (1809 – 1849), which tells of the unnamed narrator’s descent into madness as he murders his uncle. I’m a huge fan of the Gothic master, including The Raven, Alone and Ligeia.
