Dear parents, 
Please be aware that Poe's Tell Tale Heart centers around the theme of mental health: whether or not the narrator of the story is mad. (Spoiler)  Younger or more sensitive students are not recommended for this class. The narrator discusses killing the old man he lives with. Because the genre of the text is gothic and NOT horror, it is not bloody or grotesque, but it is a major plot point that parents need to be aware of.
