Guide to The Black Cat

Black Cat Poster

For the most wild, yet most homely study guide that you are about to read, I neither expect nor solicit belief on just how outstanding it is until you actually read what's here. Mad indeed would I be to expect it. Yet, mad am I not - and very surely do I not dream. But to-morrow I write about other stories, so to-day you must click on the links and study "The Black Cat" by Edgar Allan Poe.

My immediate purpose is to place before the world, plainly, succinctly, and without comment, a series of articles, study helps, and lesson plans. In their consequences, these "The Black Cat" articles, study helps and lesson plans have terrified - have tortured - have destroyed me, so the least you could do is read them.

Hereafter, perhaps, some intellect may be found which will reduce my brilliance to the common-place - some intellect more calm, more internet savvy, and far less prone to hyperbole than my own, which will perceive, in the articles, study helps, and lesson plans I detail with awe, nothing more than ordinary...but I doubt it.
