The Raven & The Black Cat

The Raven and Selected Short Stories - Edgar Allan Poe, Stefan Rudnicki, Various

There is nothing that I can say about either of these two absolute classics that hasn't been said before, except that until I re-read The Black Cat this year just after I re-read the The Raven, it had not really struck me how similar the narrators are with respect to the process they are going through when descending into madness.

 

Also, I had totally forgotten how horrible and gruesome the story of The Black Cat is. Maybe I had tried to forget...
