The exposition of the story, the plot to murder an innocent man because of his eye: "He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold" unravels through a first person narration. The narrator is unreliable because he is insane and paranoid. This unique perspective gives readers insight into a psychotic mind, chilling them to the bone and making the story unpredictable
