Death as Po's u-turn


Death for Edgar Allan Poe has the taste of fate and relief ,throughout the 5 stories ; always leads to a personality change ; Although , the victim's character is always gentle and patient .
 
In the fall of the house of Usher, death of the sister is the climax and the conclusion ; may this particular event is 
a projection of the death of Po's wife .

The Pale portrait , tele-tale have the same theme "Gentle people are always a sort of victims".

"The Facts in the Case of M. Vladimir" has a phase of science madness where things go against nature therefore they experience the most terrifying event, by then hypnotizing was a miraculous treatment and like any new idea that people criticize , fear and consider it devilish or against nature.

There is more then one possible read for the “Black cat “.
One , may be through the eyes of the narrator where we can explain all by supernatural power of the black cat , and his devilish affection over the protagonist's . " The fury of a demon instantly possessed me. p236"
   
Another and more logical reading implies that superstitions here were the protagonist tool to cover his own flaw .Its always common in folklore that tales cover a social disgrace ; so here , it’s a sort of defense mechanisms For the protagonist, he justify for himself his attitude  ; Although , all his character transformations are the usual symptoms of alcohol addiction.
    Symptoms - as known today - include apathy " I grew, more regardless of the feelings of others. P235 " , amnesia " soon drowned in wine all memory of the deed . P236 " ,
and disturbed sleep " for one night at least, I tranquilly slept p241"
٫

    Years passed while the couple had no children . 
It seems that Pluto and the wife are somehow objective correlatives to him.
In some old cultures ,  women adapt black cat as a sign for aiming to have children.
So , may the protagonist is an impotent man and alcohol is just hiding his sense of incapability.

    He killed the cat on purpose :
" One morning, in cool blood, I slipped a noose about its neck and hung it to the limb of a tree;—hung it with the tears streaming from my eyes, hung it because I knew that it had loved me, p236" , garding a feeling of guilt .

    During the wife murderer the narrator describes himself : " into a rage more than demoniacal, p240 " ; But he didn't feel guilt then .

  It looks like he hates himself and wants to be hated so he kills his beloved ones ; Just like Metallica - Die Die my darling song .
 " Die die die my darling
Don't utter a single word
Die die die my darling
Just shut your pretty eyes
I'll be seeing you again
I'll be seeing you in hell "
