...Allen Poe Revealed Through Anima The 19th century Edgar Allan Poe is well-known to contemporary audiences as both the master of the short story and the master of horror, but he is often studied for the psychological aspects of his writing and what it reveals about himself. His stories appeal to the reader’s psychological demons as a means of instilling a sense of terror unreachable through more mundane physical descriptions. These stories were born out of a life of repeated disconnection from his fellow man and an overriding sense of despair on his own.

...Poe: A Modern Psychological Reading Contrary to the familiar studies and criticisms of the fiction by Edgar Allen Poe, one of the most celebrated literary figures in our literary tradition, which focus on the cosmological and aesthetic aspects of his fictions, it is interesting and encouraging to undertake a deeper study of his fictions emphasizing the psychological revelations through his short stories. Although such an attempt involves a greater and more involved reading and understanding of Poe's fiction, the result of any such endeavor itself is more than just ordinary recompense.

...Allen Poe: The Theme of Death. “The Masque of the Red Death,” and “The Cask of Amontillado,” are two short stories which unarguably demonstrate Edgar Allen Poe’s mastery over the genre of terror, and justify his reputation as one of the foremost writers of horror stories. The first is an allegory, and is almost like a fairytale in its shades of fantasy and imagery. It is totally cut off from the real world. It is entirely descriptive, and the action is stylized.
