      POLL QUESTIONS What did you think of Edgar Allen Poe s short story, THE BLACK CAT READER RESPONSES OUCH.well I didn t hate this anti black cat hit piece as much as the unbiased poll respondents did, but I didn t really like it either Of course, as a member of the GLASS Association Get Lousy Drunk and Sing Showtunes , I will say that I found the negative portrayal of excess alcohol consumption to be both misleading and offensive and may have allowed that anger to color my opinion Regardless, for [...]

      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 t [...]

      I loved this story when I was eight years old My dad downloaded it for me and I would play it on CD from my bedroom stereo I don t even remember the last time I used a CD, I prefer real books , but The Black Cat gets better with age and for a short little tale of a cruel, neurotic man and the cat he mistreats, it carries deep themes of guilt, morality, kindness or lack thereof, who the f ck cuts a cat s eye out with a pen knife just because they feel like it and vengeance coming to bite this guy [...]

      I like Edger Allan Poe s stories very much They are so deep and give very horrifying feelings to me I liked this story too While reading, I was feeling that I had experienced something like this before But I couldn t know from where It turned out, The Tell tale Heart was similar to this one That s why.I highly recommend this story to everyone.

      This short story was an intense read Not all of Poe s stories works for me, but this one definitely does It deals with animal cruelty and domestic violence, and some of it was uncomfortable But I really like it when literature makes me feel something strongly even if its something bad It shows both the power and the importance of literature Cozy, funny reads are great, and sometimes they re exactly what I need But it is stories that challenge me or make me feel something intensely that really fa [...]

      I think I might have to give this one the Most Unpleasant Narrator of All Time award It s true, animal abusers tend to be psychopaths Here, Poe gives us a disturbing glimpse into the mind of a man who shows no remorse for his deeds and is eager to blame outside factors for his own decisions The story, published in 1843, still has the ability to shock, even today.

      I love karma.The Black Cat is Poe at his best macabre, creepy self image error Also, don t mess with cats They re evil.

    15. Zuky the BookBum on said:

      This is one of few Poe works that I have read but I am stunned at his ability to scare his reader.This story is dark, disturbing and horrific Told from the perspective of a man made angry and aggressive from an alcohol addiction, this story moves through the motions of his life From happy young animal loving boy, to wife and animal abuser.Karma s a bitch, don t fuck with cats

      Me resulta hermosa la manera en que Poe relata la perdida de la cordura de un hombre sano y su macabra obsesi n con las distintas formas de deshacerse de los cuerpos, divina.

      Poe is a literary genius Maybe I am just a sucker for titles dealing with cats But, Poe is famous for a reason As much as I say Stephen King is the master of horror.I have to say, Poe is the original horror master Such a creative mind, beautiful words and prose.

      I just read this particular short story on a Wiki site ensource wiki The_Sat found it truly gruesome I can understand why some might not connect with it Poe s tale of a descent into madness violence is somewhat illogical for the normal person, but for the addict or alcoholic well, he describes it perfectly unsurprising when you consider his history of abuse I believe he poured his soul into the telling The man s brief description of his prior life told me that he must have been a good somewhat s [...]

      The Black Cat 1842 is a truly horrible story by Edgar Allan Poe It is horrible in an entirely literal sense, and is one of the darkest stories Poe ever wrote It is a psychological study of guilt and madness resulting in part from alcoholism This is an interesting stance taken by the author, since Poe himself was reputedly an alcoholic Masterly though it is, I dislike this story intensely with its depiction of view spoiler animal torture and the murder of his wife There are themes recognisable fr [...]
