IF: Worry


‘No doubt I now grew very pale; - but I talked more fluently, and with a heightened voice. Yet the sound increased - and what could I do? It was a low, dull, quick sound - much such a sound as a watch makes when enveloped in cotton. I gasped for breath - and yet the officers heard it not.’

The Tell Tale Heart
Edgar Allen Poe
1843

Hi Neil, it looks like I need to expand my reading list - not that I haven't known this for a long time.
I could comment on composition, perspective etc that all go to making this a fine piece but do know what I'm a sucker for hidden or subtle details and those hearts in the wood grain are a very nice touch.
