Irony in Tell Tale Heart?

Answer

The irony in the Tell Tale Heart is that the narrator wants the reader to believe he is sane when clearly he is not because he is plotting the murder of the old man. The narrator also refers to himself as calm and logical but the reader can clearly tell that he is agitated and insane. After he kills the old man, he actually hides the heart under his floorboards and after the police arrive he begins to hear the heart beating.
