Literature English essay


The narrators of Edgar Allan Poe’s story, “The Tell-Tale Heart” and Raymond Cathedral’s story, “Cathedral,” both reveal much about themselves. The narrator of the Poe story reveals how he is not the person he believes himself to be.

  • one inch margins all around, from beginning onward
  • Double-spaced from start to finish
  • 12 point font
  • Times New Roman Typeface
  • Nothing underlined or highlighted


To write a better paper, have full-paragraphs, one idea per paragraph and each with a topic sentence

Make claims which address the prompt instead of retell the story plots

Provide enough context to embed your points in, but write about context to provide valuable information about the claims, not for the sake of retelling the tale

Follow each claim with evidence MLA (quotes—just enough to make your points but having the quotes worked seamlessly into your own sentences) and then analyze the quote

Address the Ws whenever relevant: the who, why, where, what, how, when of the point to be made

Explain and analyze, especially pivotal moments you wish to discuss
