William James Wintle (1861-1920) was a Welsh writer who established himself as an author before becoming an Oblate for the Abbey of Caldey Island in Wales.

Wintle noted that the stories were originally told on Sunday nights while ´´crouching over a wood fire on a wind-swept island off the Western shore´´. ´The Black Cat´ tells the story of a man who hates cats and finds himself haunted by a mysterious spectral black cat which gradually becomes more powerful and threatening.

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is known for his tales of the macabre and the supernatural. ´´The Black Cat´´ is one of his most celebrated. In it the narrator tells of his growing hatred for his pet cat and how in a drunken rage he maims the animal by cutting out one of its eyes. Worse is to follow when, in an episode of alcohol-induced depravity, he kills the cat by hanging it from a tree, with the most horrifying of consequences. 1. Language: English.

The Black Cat is a short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. It was first published in the August 19, 1843, edition of The Saturday Evening Post. It is a study of the psychology of guilt, often paired in analysis with Poe´s ´´The Tell-Tale Heart´´. In both, a murderer carefully conceals his crime and believes himself unassailable, but eventually breaks down and reveals himself, impelled by a nagging reminder of his guilt. 1. Language: English.

This is a story from the Fall of the House of Usher collection. The horrors of the Spanish Inquisition, with its dungeon of death, and the overhanging gloom on the House of Usher demonstrate unforgettably the unique imagination of Edgar Allan Poe. Unerringly, he touches upon some of our greatest nightmares: Premature burial, ghostly transformation, words from beyond the grave. Written in the 1840s, they have retained their power to shock and frighten even now. Also in this collection of Poe´s tales of mystery and imagination: ´´The Black Cat´´, ´´The Facts in the Case of M Valdemar´´, ´´The Cask of Amontillado´´, ´´Ligeia´´, ´´The Tell-Tale Heart´´, ´´The Masque of the Red Death´´, ´´The Premature Burial´´, and ´´The Raven´´. 1.
