Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" disrupts our versions of reality, even as we identify with it in ways we might not want to admit. Something sparks our curiosity and forces us to follow the narrator through the chilling maze of his mind. We hear the story of murder through words, and through his version of reality.
The narrator initially suggests that his neighbors are suspicious people. His suspicions prove correct. Therefore, his version of reality is sometimes accurate.
