*********The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe

*********Nevertheless, he manages to pull his thoughts together for long enough to find a potential solution. He spreads the remains of the oil and spice from his food onto the strap and lies still so that the hungry rats swarm his body in order to eat away at the strap.

Can you please, visualize a character at this stage of the story, with details of the character.
