The narrator moves from speaking in present tense in paragraph #1 to past tense for the remainder of the tale. Where do you think the speaker may be in the opening paragraph? With whom is he talking? What does he imply will be happening to him on the following day?

he is in prison in the opening paragraph. he talks to the readers. he uses past tense because he recalls past events. he is to be hanged the next day and he confesses his crime.
