Meet the Author

Edgar Allan Poe was an American poet, short story writer,
playwright, editor, critic, essayist and one of the leaders of the
American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of the macabre
and mystery, Poe was one of the early American practitioners of the
short story and a progenitor of detective fiction and crime
fiction. He is also credited with contributing to the emergent
science fiction genre.Poe died at the age of 40. The cause of his
death is undetermined and has been attributed to alcohol, drugs,
cholera, rabies, suicide (although likely to be mistaken with his
suicide attempt in the previous year), tuberculosis, heart disease,
brain congestion and other agents.

    The Black Cat

    This story is quite brilliant to be honest. Edgar Allen Poe tells the story of a man that owns a large black cat. The cat, once the object of his complete adoration, soon turns into the object of his utmost loathing. The madness caused or blamed on the cat leads to a delightfully horrific chain of events that all lead back to the cat. Very short though. It is more of a short story than a book for long time enjoyment. Language is a bit hard to unserstand so I would recommend this for 14+
