The Black Cat

The narrator may think Policemen officers who investigate the happenings at the home of the narrator Servant Person working in the narrator's household ABOUT AUTHOR Edgar Allan Poe born January 19 1809 Boston Massachusetts US died October 7 1849 Balti Maryland American short story writer poet critic and editor who is famous for his cultivation of mystery and the macabre His tale “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” 1841 initiated the modern detective story and the atmosphere in his tales of horror is unrivaled in American fiction His “The Raven” 1845 numbers among the best known poems in the national literature EARLY LIFE Poe was the son of the English born actress Elizabeth Arnold Poe and David Poe Jr an actor from Balti After his mother died in Richmond Virginia in 1811 he was taken into the home of John Allan a Richmond merchant presumably his godfather and of his childless wife He was later taken to Scotland and England 1815–20 where he was given a classical education that was continued in Richmond For 11 months in 1826 he attended the University of Virginia but his gambling losses at the university so incensed his guardian that he refused to let him continue and Poe returned to Richmond to find h Here is another classic Poe tale of dissolution and madness It s very similar to The Tell Tale Heart yet different in interesting ways For one thing this tale is told from a distant calm and indeed sane perspective Unlike The Tell Tale Heart which begins with the narrator breathlessly trying to convince the reader of his sanity here the narrator calmly states that I neither expect nor solicit belief in his tale but that because he is to die tomorrow presumably to be executed he wishes to unburthen my soul of the events that have terrified have tortured have destroyed meWe begin with a mundane account of the narrator s early years He was known from a young age for loving pets What a good guy After his marriage his wife gets him birds fish a dog rabbits a small monkey and a cat And that s where things start to go wrong with that cat or rather with the narrator s perception of it There s a hint that the narrator starts abusing alcohol and then starts abusing the cat and when the cat bites him a little a demon instantly possessed me and he cuts out one of its eyes spoilers to followuickly the descent into madness gathers force He hangs the cat not because it did him any wrong but because of precisely the opposite he hung it because I knew that it had loved me and because I felt it had given me no reason of offense hung it because I knew that in so doing I was committing a sin It s the transgression itself that he can t resist When he gets another cat he can t help feeling the same way toward it and the pressure builds inside him until he takes an axe to it and when his wife stops him he kills her with the axe bricks up her corpse inside the wall and when the police come and search his house they don t find her until he can t help himself he taps the wall until there s a wailing shriek from inside and the police uncover the corpse and there is the cat too whose informing voice had consigned me to the hangmanThere s an interesting and perhaps obvious use of symbolism throughout the voice from the bricked up tomb is like the repressed voices inside him that caused him to do these evil deeds and the black cat is of course a famous symbol of superstition and bad luck Nonetheless this tale isn t too heavy handed about any of this It works on a purely narrative level in the same deliciously macabre way of Poe s best work and provides another keen insight into irrationality and the demons lurking inside the human heart
