This selection of Poe's critical writings, short fiction and poetry demonstrates an intense interest in aesthetic issues and the astonishing power and imagination with which he probed the darkest corners of the human mind. The Fall of the House of Usher describes the final hours of a family tormented by tragedy and the legacy of the past. In the Tell Tale Heart, a murderer's insane delusions threaten to betray him, while stories such as The Pit and the Pendulum and the Cask of Amontillado explore extreme states of decadence, fear and hate.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Paderborn (Institut fur Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar American Gothic, language: English, comment: Sprachliche und inhaltliche Analyse der Kurzgeschichten 'The Black Cat' und 'The Tell-Tale Heart' von Edgar Allan Poe mit anschliessender Gegenuberstellung und Vergleich., abstract: "And much of Madness and more of Sin And Horror the Soul to the Plot." This line taken from Edgar Allan Poe's poem 'The Conquerer Worm' perfectly describes the essential elements featured in many of Poe's poems and stories, on which I am about to write in particular. Madness and horror, sins and the 'Imp of the Perverse' - The Evil, which lies within all of us - are popular and frequently recurring motives in Poe's literary works and thereby create a mood and atmosphere quite dark and nightmarish. The reader is offered a deep glance into the abyss of the human mind and psyche. In this term paper I'm going to draw a comparison between two of Poe's short stories, which both deal with the above mentioned concepts and images and therefore, are counted to the Gothic Genre - 'The Black Cat' and 'The Tell-Tale Heart.' The main focus of my work will lie on the similarities of the storytelling structures and the speech Poe uses to convey this certain feeling of suspense, horror and thrill. I will examine which further motives and images Poe uses in this two stories and which function they fulfil. I'm going to carry out my researches primarily with the help of the books: 'Poe' by Walter Lenning, 'Poe - A Biography' by Frank T. Zumbach, 'The Cambridge Companion to Gothic Fiction' by Jerrod Hogle and 'The Fall of the House of Usher and Other Writings' by Edgar Allan Poe
