The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
How is the story narrated? Is it told in the third or the first person?
If the story is told in the third person, is the point of view omniscient or does it confine itself to what is perceived by a particular character?
What is gained by this choice?
If the story is told by a first-person narrator, what is the speaker's main reason for telling the story? What does the narrator have to gain by making us believe his or her account?
Does the first-person narrator fully understand his or her own motivations? Is there some important aspect of the narrator's character or situation that is being overlooked?
Is there anything peculiar about the first-person narrator? Does this peculiarity create any suspicions about the narrator's accuracy or reliability?
What does the narrator's perspective add? Would the story seem as memorable if related from another narrative angle?
