Short Story Second Year Classes Assist.Prof.Asmaa.Mukaram.Saeed The Black Cat Gothic Fiction Horror or Gothic fiction can also be "sensation" fiction, a popular genre in Poe's day. Sensation stories were designed

to work on the readers' senses. The characters experience scandalous feelings and desires, commit dire acts, and find themselves in extreme situations. Violence, imprisonment, death, dismemberment, and live burial are meant to shock us into feeling. It's one of Poe's shorter stories and one of his most disturbing, focusing on cruelty

towards animals, murder, and guilt, and told by an unreliable narrator who's rather difficult to like. You can read 'The Black Cat' here. The Black Cat was first published in August 1843 in the Saturday Evening Post. Its one of Poes shorter stories and one of his most disturbing, focusing on cruelty towards animals, murder, and guilt, and told by an unreliable narrator whos rather difficult to like.

You can read The Black Cat . Symbols Symbols of rationality and its defeat can be found in the narrators horrible act of burying the ax in his wifes braina word that emphasizes thinking more than the word skull would. In this act, the narrator has in effect extinguished his own rationality, as well as its chief human

representative in his sphere. Further, when the brick wall is broken down, the black cat is found perched on the corpses head, one more indication of Among the symbols of humanity of feeling is the second cats marking. It has, in the narrators phrasing, a large, although indefinite splotch of white, covering nearly the whole region of the breast.

Moreover, the cat has, the narrator says, a habit of fastening its long claws in my dress to clamber, in this manner, to my breast. Finally, the cat will not let him sleep; he awakens with it on his chest: its vast weight [was] . . . incumbent on my heart! (Poes italics). The repeated references to bosom breast, and especially heart point to the narrators fatal deficiency of love and

the Narrator's admitted alcoholism ("the Fiend Intemperance"), is apparently the chief cause of his many woes. However, this, too, is treated in a sardonic fashion by Poe. The Narrator explains that his attitude towards his wife and his beloved pets changed once he started drinking: I grew, day by day, more moody, more irritable, more regardless of the feelings of others. I suffered myself to use intemperate language to my wife. At length, I even

offered her personal violence. The common superstition about black cats, which his wife believes, is that they are bad luck witches in disguise good luck able to kind cast of
