This short story, of which the title is very important as it reveals, as we will say later on, the plot twist of the story, shows the slow loss of sanity of the narrator, as he relates his story.
This text, very ambiguous, is a good example of Poe's work on dark psychology, madness and the complexity of reality. Edgar Allan Poe is one of the major American authors of the 19 th century.

Even though he had a short life, he is still remembered today as a prolific author, poet, editor and editor. He was born in Boston, but never knew his father and his mother died of tuberculosis when he was three. He was adopted by John and Frances Allan, and lived in Virginia. He had a difficult relationship with John, but got on very well with his foster mother Frances.
Poe started writing when he was a teenager. In , he went to university but money issues led him to gambling and left him in debt. As a consequence, he had to leave university and spent some years moving to different cities and living in poverty. He published his first book, Tamerlane and Other Poems , in , in Boston. He joined the US army and a Military Academy, and at the same time he had to face problems with his foster father, John Allan.
In the s, Poe went to live with his aunt and his young cousin Virginia. His relationship with her developed and he married her in , in a peculiar context: she was only 13 at the time, while he was Virginia became his muse and an important inspiration in his writing, but she died of tuberculosis some years later, at a young age. Poe turned to writing full-time, but never managed to properly make a living from it.
His main activity was that of critic, as he wrote reviews in magazines. He also published some of his own works in magazines, which was a popular way for writers to share their work with the public in the 19 th century. Poe introduced the Gothic and horror genre to American literature, quite popular in England at the same time. At the time, detective novels were not yet a genre in itself, and Poe was one of the first authors to write crime stories. It was a poem about loss, death, in which the narrator shares about the death of his lover. He died in at the young age of 40, in mysterious circumstances.
Since the death of his wife Virginia in , Poe had lived in distress, poverty and faced problems with alcohol. On his way to Philadelphia at the end of September , he disappeared for a week, and was found days later in Baltimore, in a state of suffering. Taken to the hospital, he died there but the exact cause of his death remains a mystery. After his death, Poe's reputation was damaged by some authors because of his harsh critics and mysterious dark life.
However, he was to become, and still is today, one of the most famous American writers. He started a tradition of horror and mystery literature that inspired many authors after him, and which still fascinates readers today. Pendant une heure, le vieil homme reste alerte, les yeux ouverts, et le narrateur ne fait pas un bruit. Il insiste sur sa minutie, et presque le professionnalisme de son crime, pour prouver qu'il n'est pas fou ni impulsif. Le son semble venir de tout autour de lui, et l'homme parle donc plus fort pour essayer de le cacher, ayant peur que les policiers l'entendent aussi.
