The Black cat is one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most memorable stories. The tale centers around a black cat and the subsequent deterioration of a man. The story is often linked with “The Tell-Tale Heart” because of the profound psychological elements these two works share. The story first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post on Aug. 19, 1843. The first-person narrative falls in to the realm of horror and gothic literature and has been examined in association with themes of insanity and alcoholism.
House and home are supposed to be a place of safety and security, but it becomes a dark and tragic place of madness and murder in this story. The narrator kills his favorite pet and then he kills his own wife. So, even the relationships that should have been the central focus of his healthy and happy home become scapegoats to his deteriorating mental state.
