This 37-slide Power Point presentation analyzes how the narrator of "The Black Cat" meets criteria for a diagnosis of Anti-Social Personality Disorder. His rages, fueled by careless alcohol consumption, have lethal results, yet he feels no remorse. He externalizes responsibility, has no empathy for his victims, and takes pleasure in devising the perfect way of disposing of his wife's body. Well ahead of his time, Poe understood the darker side of the human psyche. Visually engaging and concise. Please note: You can purchase "A Day with Edgar Allan Poe" board game for just $29.00, which includes not only this PP presentation on "The Black Cat," but also ones on "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Raven," and "Influences on Poe's Life and Work," as well as a beautifully illustrated 18" X 18" quad-fold board game, complete with color-picture question cards, pawns, die, and directions. The board game is a unique "test review" for a unit on Poe. Students will love it!
