Three versions of TheTell-Tale Heart


Using your notes on Gothic Romanticism, as well as Poe’s original text, write a one-page essay that

argues which video version is the best example of Poe’s Gothic Romanticism. You must provide an

overall answer (choose one) as well as three supporting reasons for your answer. Each supporting

reason should be based on the tenets (rules) of Gothic Romanticism. Each reason/rule should be

supported with specific video elements, that is specifically discuss artistic choices made in each

video to support your reasoning. Finally, you must analyze/discuss/argue for the elements you

include. This means you argue how the artistic choices in the video best met the definition of

Gothic Romanticism. You may have to explain how the other two video were less accurate in

representing the genre.
