has the narrator been dreaming or has he really seen this?

All Poe's short stories can be considered nightmares. That bulging eye from The Tell Tale Heart still creeps me out. Usher is no different. We have a sister (Madeline) locked up alive in a tomb, sudden noises, return of the dead or undead...That's the stuff of nightmare. Was it a dream? That depends on your interpretation. Was poor Madeline dead or alive? That's the stuff you can figure out in your own dreams.... or nightmare!
