The TELL Tale Heart

I’m Gothic.

Disclaimer ?

I also write back to front….metaphorically speaking :o0

Poe is a fave, though I’m NO expert on his work. I just know a handful of the stories.

And I feel that his “themes” are extremely relevant to life today.

“The Tell-Tale Heart” is a first-person narrative told by an unnamed narrator. Despite insisting that they are sane, the narrator suffers from a disease (nervousness) which causes “over-acuteness of the senses“.

Personal Opinion, only.

So very much is given away by a word, a look, a Freudian-slip, a song quoted, a thin-lipped smile, an emotionless truth aka LIE.

Once upon a time it was believed that the heart was the centre of thought and emotion. Then we were “enlightened” via I THINK, Therefore I am.

Wow. The video below is a threefer me. Basil Rathbone. Vincent Price. Poe.

Voices are ESSENTIAL in my life. I’ve spent money on audiobooks narrated by voices that I can’t bear to listen to. I’ve watched yt videos with voices I can’t bear to listen to.

Both Rathbone and Price have WONDERFUL voices.

I’m choosy :o)
