The black cat by Edgar Allan Poe is very characteristic of Poes writing All of his stories are dark and mysterious and mostly deal with death and murder The Black Cat deal in all of these aspects The story is written in a first person way The main character which is sentenced to death because of a murder he committed is writing from his jail cell about the occurrence that placed him there He is writing this to unburden his soul as he put itThe man Poe never reveals his name through out the entire story he just says I begins by saying that he was always fond of animals I believe that the animals in this story represent his life in all The entire story is placed around this one cat which he affectionately named Pluto He says that in his childhood he got along better with the animals that his parents had than others With these I spent most of my time and never was so happy as when feeding them1 When the man got married him and his wife had a house hold of pets with them We had birds gold-fish a fine dog rabbits a small monkey and a cat2 I think that by listing all these pets he was saying something about him self Through the birds fish and rabbits I believe he was saying that he liked to be alone but would associate with people if made to For birds tend to keep to themselves in their cages but can be taught to talk and do other things I think that when he was made to be around people he would act like mans best friend a dog Polite and free spirited Through his symbol with the monkey I think that he was saying that he was like a wild animal made domesticNow through the cat I think he made his greatest analogy Cats tend to stay off
