"The Tell-Tale Heart" (1843) - Edgar Allan Poe's Classic Short-Short of Psychological Self-Immolation


Recommended Posts

The entire text of this masterpiece of psychological horror can be found at The Poe Museum - it's a short work, easily read in 10-15 minutes, but is more appropriately read there, with its dark backdrop, than copied here.

Please feel free to comment - I just finished this for the first time in perhaps thirty years, and it's just as powerful as I remember.
