An unnamed protagonist (the Narrator) is summoned to the remote mansion of his boyhood friend, Roderick Usher.

Its proprietor, Roderick Usher, had been one of my boon companions in boyhood; but many years had elapsed since our last meeting. A letter, however, had lately reached me in a distant part of the country — a letter from him — which, in its wildly importunate nature, had admitted of no other than a personal reply.
