  • The Black Cat

     “The Black Cat” Analysis In “The Black Cat” Poe uses irony, symbolism, and a touch of the supernatural to express an overall theme of Karma. According to dictionary.com, Karma is “the cosmic principle according to which each person is rewarded or punished...according to that persons deeds.” The narrator in the story certainly has a lot to atone for after murdering his wife with an ax, but Poe pulls the reader into the narrator's twisted mind and helps us to see what brought him there in the...

Poe studies the mind, and is conscious of the abnormalities of his narrators and he does not condone the intellectual expedient through which they strive, only too earnestly, to justify themselves. He enters the field of the starkly, almost clinically...
